Lost, Abused And Neglected For A Profit

14 Sep


Guillermo Gomez-Sanchez is a 50 year old legal resident with a mental disability. In 2004 Gomez was detained because of a dispute at a grocery store over a bag of tomatoes.


Guillermo spent two years at a private CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) detention facility – the corporation neglected to report his medical condition.


Watch our video and take a stand with Cuéntame’s Immigrant For Sale documentary campaign today.CCA profited close to $90,000 off of Gomez’ incarceration, and ensured greater profit by failing to disclose his mental disability effectively leaving Guillermo trapped for 2 years. In 2010 CCA CEO Damon T. Hininger received $3,266,387 in total compensation.


It’s time to put an end to the private prison racket. How many more are suffering lost in a system that values profit over justice? Join the discussion on Facebook today!

A Family Split Apart


Pedro Guzman spent 19 months at CCA’s Stewart private detention because he missed an immigration order.


Authorities showed no mercy after Guzman explained the court order was sent to an old address.


CCA profited approximately $72,000 from Pedro’s detention.


Guzman’s wife Emily and only son Logan endured a painful and debilitating struggle to survive while they fought for Pedro’s release.

Death For Profit


Roberto Martinez-Medina died in CCA’s Stewart Detention Center in Georgia in 2009.


Medina had been arrested a month earlier for not having a driver’s license.


CCA profited off of Medina’s incarceration, and ensured a greater profit by denying him critical health care.


CCA has gone to great lengths to hush Medina’s death.

Top 3 things YOU need to know about the private prison money scheme:


1) The victims: Private prisons don’t care about who they lock up. At $200 per immigrant a night, this is the “perfect” money scheme.


2) The players: CCA, Geo Group and MTC — combined currently profit more than $5 billion a year.


3)The money: These corporations spend $20 million a year lobbying legislators to get anti-immigrant laws approved and thus more inmates.
