Nexus CEO Mike Donovan Praises the Justice Department’s Decision to Stop Using Private Prisons

Donovan-6129

“We can never truly hope to reduce recidivism and welcome offenders back into society as long as they are served by private prisons that depend upon returning clientele to protect their financial bottom lines. Today’s decision by the Justice Department is a significant first step toward moving beyond a system that by design creates a permanent underclass of citizens. I urge the Administration to continue pursuing opportunities for significant criminal justice, money bail, and prison reforms, and hope that this departure from the use of private prisons will be adopted in the context of civil immigration detention as well.”
