Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Raúl Grijalva Respond to DHS Review of Private Prison Deals

WASHINGTON--(ENEWSPF)--August 29, 2016 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) issued statements Monday after Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson announced that the agency will review its use of private detention facilities.

“The Department of Homeland Security should follow the lead of the Department of Justice and phase out for-profit, privately run immigration detention facilities. These private prisons cost more and are less humane,” Sanders said.
