GEO runs detention centers & donates BIG to politicians. In 2018, they’ve donated 6 figures to Rick Scott, Heller, Durbin, Lieu, & Graves. They are buying reps while profiting off caging immigrants. 3 in CA died in GEO custody. ACLU claims they deny necessities. Demand the donations be returned!

Here is an article that backs up my claims and here is the open secrets page that documents how much GEO has paid to buy representation in the united states congress.

Just in 2018, they've donated to 18 senators and a couple dozen us reps.

In California, 3 detainees died in custody.

The ACLU claims that they deny detainees proper access to food, water and bathrooms.

It has also been alleged in a lawsuit that GEO has forced inmates to work.

All of those links are also cited in the Dallas News article.

If your senator or us representative has taken money from GEO, give them a call and demand that they return the donation.

They are taking money from a corporation that profits of caging immigrants.

Bernie Sanders: I want everybody to appreciate the permanent trauma to children who can’t speak English caused by suddenly putting them in private detention centers. My god. Trump pathetically thinks showing how ‘strong’ & ‘tough’ he is on little children will get him votes. [Anderson Cooper 7:07]

Bernie Sanders: Congratulations to Canada for legalizing recreational marijuana. The US must follow suit. There’s no reason for marijuana to be classified as a Schedule I drug as heroin is. Too many Americans have seen their lives destroyed because they have criminal records as a result of its use.
