Private prison corporate Democrats help Trump’s ICE

This 28 July 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Democrats Taking Private Prison Money Basically Work For ICE

Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar is everything wrong with the party.

Cuellar describes himself as a ‘centrist‘ and ‘conservative Democrat‘.

Ron Placone and Mark Thompson, hosts of Aggressive Progressives, discuss.

“On Wednesday afternoon, 18 House Democrats joined all but one Republican in voting for a GOP resolution in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a deportation force created in 2003 as part of the Department of Homeland Security that’s come under fierce national scrutiny for its detention and treatment of huge numbers of undocumented immigrants.

One of the 18 Democrats, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), has also received—and defended—campaign contributions from private prison giants GEO Group and CoreCivic, which are profiting enormously from Donald Trump’s harsh immigration policies.

The Florida-based GEO Group has already scored $166 million in ICE contracts to detain immigrants this year alone and is on pace to eclipse its 2017 total, which was its highest on record.

CoreCivic has received contracts totaling $103 million this year. Democratic leaders called on their caucus to vote “present” to signal they wouldn’t take part in what Minority Whip Steny Hoyer called “a political gotcha bill.” One hundred thirty-three Democrats voted “present”, while 34 Democrats and one Republican, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, voted no.”

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in collaboration with a broad assortment of other federal, state and local police agencies, carried out a massive, coordinated series of raids in northern Nebraska and southern Minnesota Wednesday to detain and deport immigrant workers on the fraudulent pretext of defending workers from exploitation and abuse by their employers: here.
