Calling It Out: Immigration
Immigration is big business in Texas. And that business just got bigger. Texas has the largest number of detention centers in the country. The two major for profit prison companies in Texas grossed about $4 billion in 2017. They have spent more than $10 million backing political candidates and have received hundreds of millions in government contracts. We are in shock over the incarceration of children. What about being shocked by an industry, a rising industry that drives the lobby for increased sentences, harsher punishments and more people being incarcerated?
