Rubio: Enforce the law irrespectful of the provider

Hector Salamanca Arroyo on November 24, 2015
Grinnell College student Yesenia Ayala asked Marco Rubio about the 34,000 immigrant detention mandate, with Senator Rubio stating enforcement of the law needs to occur regardless of who is providing the service to the government.

Question: "I am concerned about crony capitalism. We have a provision in our federal budget, the Homeland Security budget, that locks up 34,000 immigrants a day and it was lobbied for by Corrections Corporation of America. Most of the time these private prisons benefit from this policy. So if you are elected will you end the detention quota and make sure that our policies are made for the needs of our communities and not the companies who lobby?"
