Mother Jones: California Will Keep Housing Its Detained Immigrants in For-Profit Centers

Mother Jones reports that California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have prevented local governments from contracting with for-profit companies to detain immigrants. Seventy percent of California's immigrant detainees are held in for-profit facilities, according to data from ICE. In his veto message, Brown said that, while he was "troubled" by recent reports revealing poor conditions in some private detention facilities, he will defer to DHS, which is currently examining its use of for-profit companies, on this issue.
