Wells Fargo profits from immigrants, it invests in private prisons that stand to profit from criminalizing immigrants

Wells Fargo Forecloses on Our Homes… While Investing in a Private Prison Company that Supported Arizona’s SB1070 and Makes Money Incarcerating Immigrants

CCA not only pushed for Arizona’s Anti-Immigrant Law, SB1070, they also stand to profit from the increased incarceration of immigrants detained under that law.

CCA reports show their executives believe immigrant detention is their next big market.

NPR exposed how CCA worked with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), a conservative membership group of state legislators and powerful corporations, to draft the model bill for SB1070.  Of the bill’s 36 co-sponsors, two thirds are a part of ALEC or went to the conference where the bill was drafted and thirty of them received donations from prison lobbyists or prison companies.
