Contractors get $750 per child per day to detain migrants. Something’s wrong here.

September 24, 2018

So the longer a child is detained, the more profit the contractor makes. It would be unsurprising to find that the “processing” employees, such as Monica Vega, are working under pressure from their management to stretch out detentions in the interest of corporate profits.

This should be stopped. The company that profits from these detentions should not be in charge of determining releases.
