President Obama and Attorney General Holder: End the For-Profit Operation Streamline Scheme Now!

October 26, 2013

[Operation Streamline's] existence is unique, not just in the United States, but to the world. And there is a good reason for that. There isn’t even any pretense of justice - not our opinion, but that of the attorneys who have told us as much. Also, our vocabulary seems to be inadequate to describe this obscene operation. Suffice to say it is both a scheme to criminalize migrants and a scheme to enrich private prison corporations. The Grassroots Leadership organization estimates that the cost of the program may be higher than $400 million per year.
