Bill Ackman is the Wall St investment guru who is also the head of Pershing Square Capital, the hedge fund that is the biggest investor in Corrections Corporation of America, the private prison company behind Arizona’s SB 1070 and its clone that just passed the Georgia state senate.

Among investors, Ackman is a trend setter – responsible for a lot of Wall Street money going to private prison companies that drive how immigration laws are enforced through their lobbying.
