Politicians and public officials in the state have made public their support for the facility, which could be the largest in the country. Even if there is one only 30 miles away! CCA makes money every night an immigrant fills their bed spaces. Southwest Ranch constituents have accused their officials of “being in bed” with private prison lobbyist.
