Governor Jeb Bush: We shouldn't have a detention mandate

Katherine McFarlane on December 03, 2015
Governor Bush took our question on immigrant detention while at Dmacc Newtown Campus and responded by stating he was unsure if it was true but if it was, we shouldn't have it. He has continued to state opposition to the immigrant detention mandate.

Question: Corporate lobbyists for the Corrections Corporation of America and the GEO Group have used their influence to create an immigration detention quota in the federal budget, so that now we have to keep 34,000 immigrants in jails and prisons every single day. What are you going to do, as President to make sure that private corporations aren't driving federal policy?
