Why Wells Fargo:
– Wells Fargo is one of the largest investors in detention centers, imprisoning thousands of immigrant workers to be deported
– For-profit prisons receive an average of $122 a day per person in detention. The average number of people in detention is over 30,000, at a cost to taxpayers of over $3.6 million daily.
