A variety of organizations stood up against ICE abuse with it’s system of private prisons.  The AFSC helped organize the event in which a large group of people met at the GEO facility in Aurora Colorado.

The group made up of multiple races, citizens and permanent residents, and families grieving the incarceration of their loved ones in prisons for profit.

Approximately 100 people gathered at the GEO center in North Aurora, Colorado.  They say they are shocked at the new walls and the increase in the size of the facility.  ICE is clearly planning on taking care of many new invitees.  At $130 per day, GEO group is making a pretty penny keeping people locked up for a buck.  The use of the private prisons allows ICE to hide the true cost of imprisoning 450,000 immigrants last year, a large percentage of whom have never committed a crime.

The AFSC and friends hold the vigil on the first Monday of every month.  If you are in the Metro area, please come by and meet the people who say no to private prisons, GEO group and prisons for profit, ICE raids and imprisoning children and housewives who would otherwise make productive, tax paying, American citizens.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) will strengthen the border, add legions of border patrol agents, and fund security for our nation’s sea ports.  At the same time, it would bring 12 million undocumented immigrants out into the sunshine.  The law would give them a long journey to become permanent residents of the US, so long as they pass a background check, pay fines which when totaled would add billions to the federal treasury, and pay back taxes.

The Dream Act will allow the youth of undocumented students a chance to go to college or serve in the military.  After background checks and fines which will add additional billions to help tax payer causes, Dream Students could become permanent residents.   They, too, will have a 7 to 10 year path, and have to tow the line pending completion of their end of the bargain.

Neither option is amnesty because both bills require substantial sacrifices on the part of the immigrants in order to take advantage of the benefits of the law.  A conservative legislature has blocked both the Dream Act and CIR, while asking citizens to endure continuing reductions in Medicare, social security, schools and police protection.
