DHS has recently made even more contracts with these companies to build 11 new facilities for detaining immigrants. DHS promises over 90% capacity on average and somtimes contractually agrees to 100% occupancy for these prisons that are not even built yet. With these unheard of minimum occupancy contracts, DHS insures that these companies will make a return on their investment.
It is impportant to note that ICE is a Government agency that operates under the umbrella of DHS, the largest Federal Government agency that exists. More importantly, all of this is funded by your tax dollars!
