The detention quota is a federal policy requiring that 34,000 beds in immigrant detention facilities be maintained every day — an arbitrary number based not on enforcement needs, but on the profit needs of the companies that contract to detain immigrants.  Congresspeople who support the policy benefit from campaign contributions from the very same corporations.

Arnie hands whistle to Christie
Last week I asked Chris Christie how we can keep for-profit prison companies from running our immigration policy. He said "we need to blow the whistle" if policy is being driven by the dictates of private profit. So I went to see him again this week. After his speech in Portsmouth, I gave him a copy of our paper on the immigrant detention quota. And I handed him a whistle.

I asked Dr. Carson how we can prevent corporate lobbyists from dictating immigration policies like the immigrant detention quota system. He agreed that it is a problem. Dr. Carson said, "When you go and you look under the hood, you just want to turn and shut it back down. It’s full of worms and maggots."
