California is set to ban private prisons and detention centers

California is set to ban the use of for-profit, private detention facilities, including those under contract to the federal government to hold immigrants awaiting deportation hearings. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill to the effect on Friday and said the measure helps fulfill a promise he made to end private prison use.

I fully support the abolition of private prisons - an abomination that should never have been. Private immigration detention centers are less problematic as they are only temporary; I have no problem with their existence.

Fewer criminals means fewer viable private prisons. Stop importing criminals. It's that simple.

Private prisons... ok fine that's debatable at least but IMMIGRATION DETENTION CENTERS?! No wonder so many Californians outside of the Urban hell wants to split California into two different States! This is Fucking Bullocks!

The removal of private prisons without adequate places to keep the offenders will cause crime to rise even higher in an already crime ridden cesspool. Let's let all the criminals out of jail tomorrow! Why punish anyone? This is a back and forth pendulum, cyclical. Crime rises and the right gets tough on it and crime goes down. The left gets angry that so many are in jail and lightens sentencing and let's criminals out of jail and the public suffers. Then they vote the right back in. Just keep laws strict and crime low. There is no need to feel companionate for criminals that made bad choices. Let them serve their time and hopefully learn that we will not accept that behavior and the punishments are real and inflexible.

I think this is a good idea. prisons are not meant to be run for profit.

I think immigration detention centers are unfortunately necessary, but I'm fine if they aren't for profit. for now, we need to wait and see what happens
