This smells like the lobbyists for the prison and detention centers have seriously weighed in. Just as their lobbying muscle did MUCH to institute the war on drugs (so that a high prison population would mean steady profits for "their product"); detention is also big business to the same nefarious interests.

I'll bet the individuals who profit from incarcerating human beings on bogus charges go to church and talk a lot about family values. But they have no issue with breaking up poor, Black, and Latino families on a daily basis, nor any understanding of the scar tissue that creates.

It seems virtually every injustice in this world has at its roots someone trying to make a buck off it.
