PBS takes on private immigration detention
The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) television program NOW recently featured a story about for-profit immigration lockups in the United States. The report features the GEO Group, an embattled private prison firm that was recently allowed to add 1,100 beds to its 400-bed Immigration and Customs Enforcement prison on the outskirts of Denver.
Here is a link to a video of the story, which includes an interview from a former worker at the immigration lockup in Colorado.
The GEO Group declined to be interviewed for the broadcast.
