ACLU oppose ICE's private concentration camps

The Hill - The American Civil Liberties Union  is pushing back against reported new plans by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to expand detention facilities for illegal immigrants across the country through the use of private prisons.

In a Thursday statement, the ACLU said it was joining 13 legal service providers and immigrant rights organizations in opposing the move.

"This attempt to expand ICE jails is part of the continued assault on immigrant communities, and a boon to the private prison industry," said the ACLU's director of immigration policy Lorella Praeli.
