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”.

GEO has been sued multiple times for forcing detainees to work for food, water and toiletries.
