No For-Profit Immigrant Detention Camps in Michigan

GEO Group—the largest private prison corporation in the US—will attempt to open Michigan’s first for-profit detention center for immigrants in Baldwin, Michigan on October 1st.

GEO Group is an industry leader in human-rights abuses and deaths at its facilities. A federal judge described their facilities as, “a cesspool of unconstitutional and inhuman acts and conditions”.
