"Immigrant Prisons" (14.5 minutes)

Few Americans know about our nation's system of immigrant detention centers. Each year, the U.S. government locks up roughly 440,000 immigrants in over 200 immigrant prisons. Companies like the CCA and Geo Group, got started in the 1980s, and have since made over $12 billion in profits, largely from immigrant detention. These facilities have grown into a highly privatized, lucrative and abusive industry that profits off the misery of immigrants awaiting deportation. These abuses happen behind closed doors with little to no oversight.

A Media Edge crew recorded the event at St. Mark's United Methodist Church as part of its Moon Lecture Series.
