California says they are cracking down on “private for-profit prisons,” introducing a bill to ban the facilities.
What this also means is shutting down U.S. Immigration, and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) privately run detention centers. California Legislation bill AB-42 passed the state assembly last Wednesday with 65 votes in favorable votes. According to Newsweek, it would mean shutting down four detention centers holding “up to 4,500 inmates.”
Even if Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin Newsom signs the legislation that he promised to do, he will have major challenges of slimming down the state’s overburdened prison system to make more space or release the criminals back on the streets.

ICE will suffer the most significant setback if this is forced on them, do you agree?
California is set to deliver a major blow to the private prison industry after lawmakers voted to ban private prisons, including privately run U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention centers across the state.
On Wednesday, 65 California State Assembly members voted in favor of AB-32, the new legislation seeking to ban private prisons, while 11 members voted against it.
The legislation still needs to be signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom before it can become law, but he is expected to support the ban, given that he himself called for an end to the “outrage of private prisons once and for all” in his inaugural speech in January.
If signed, the new legislation would come into effect after the 2020 presidential election “on or after January 1, 2020” and would prohibit California’s government from “entering into or renewing a contract with a private, for-profit prison to incarcerate state inmates.” [Newsweek]
Yeah close up the ICE detention centers then the illegals can camp out on the streets with all the homeless. See how this works out. I have always thought that “States” cannot tell the Federal government what to do. I am sure the Supreme Court would annul any bill coming from that state overstepping on the Federal government’s jurisdiction.
Unless those ICE detention centers are owned and operated by the State of California, then I don’t expect the Federal Government will be complying with Sacramento’s whimsical desires. Federal facilities, operated by the Federal Government, within the State of California do not adhere or abide by the State of California’s laws.

Private prison companies complain that they save taxpayer dollars, follow government regulations, and connect inmates with re-entry resources.
The State Assemblymember who introduced the bill, Rob Bonta, shared this on his Twitter timeline on Thursday: “Profiteering on the backs of people who are incarcerated is not only morally wrong but inhumane & contrary to our California values. My #AB32 ends this shameful practice by banning the use for all for-profit, private detention in CA!”

The Communist Democrats can take a hike. They’re already in rebellion/insurrection against the US Government and Constitution. It wouldn’t take a lot for Trump to send in federal troops. California has gotten too big for its britches, and it needs to be put back in its place.
If passed, the law would prevent the state of California from signing new contracts with private prisons beginning in 2020. Further, the state wouldn’t renew existing contracts hoping to shut down such ventures by 2028. The state’s Democratic governor Gavin Newsom is next to sign the bill before it’s passed.
