Senator Bernie Sanders

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Thursday after the Justice Department announced plans to end its use of private prisons:

“Our criminal justice system is broken and in need of major reforms. The Justice Department’s plan to end its use of private prisons is an important step in the right direction. It is exactly what I campaigned on as a candidate for president.
