Private Prison Profit Reason for Arizona Illegal Alien Law

The current Governor has really close ties to private prison companies. What better way to up profits than by putting more people in detention. As usual – follow the money and you will find the stink. Race bait voters so you can get money from filling up private jails that are paid with your tax dollars!

Tucson Hearing Puts Spotlight on Private Prisons in Arizona

Tucson Hearing Puts Spotlight on Private Prisons in Arizona
From Mike Wilson of the Tohono O’odham Nation to Joe Glen of the Maricopa & Pima Juvenile Corrections Associations, the theme was the same: Companies such as Corrections Corporation of America, Management Training Corporation, and the GEO group consistently focus on profit over safety and rehabilitation of those who are incarcerated in their facilities.

Coming directly on the heels of the Tucson Hearing was a scathing report from National Public Radio exposing the influence that private prison corporations had in the development of Arizona’s controversial immigration law, SB1070. Corrections Corporation of America, which holds contracts with the federal government to incarcerate immigrants, was a key player in creating a law that would increase the number of immigrants in detention, thus representing the potential for tremendous corporate profits. The report describes how a shadowy organization called ALEC provided opportunities for corporations to meet with state legislators to draft model legislation, which those legislators later took back to their states.Read more at bsnorrell.blogspot.com

Let’s hope her brave poetry helps her and does not end up costing her, her life – as it could in her land.

Whenever…

Whenever the door of my heart begins to open
Something closes it with fear.
Whenever I try to fly free and high
Something covers my wings before I can try.
Whenever it is time to speak up
Something seizes my words.
Whenever the past is about to be forgotten
Something reminds me of it over and over.
Whenever I can take a step forward
Something pulls me in reverse.
Whenever I can try a new endeavor
Something draws me back to the old.
Whenever I have a new idea
Something destroys it to the marrow.
Whenever my accomplishments blossom
Something keeps them captured.
Whenever more can be written
Something prevents me to continue.
Whenever I say enough is enough
Something says it will never be enough.
When will I find out what this
Something is?
