    [$$] Trump’s Immigrant-Detention Plans Benefit Private Prison Operators

    The Trump administration’s new push for more federal detention facilities for immigrants awaiting asylum hearings or deportation has brightened the outlook for the country’s two largest private prison operators. Tennessee-based CoreCivic Inc. and Florida-based Geo Group had already been helped by higher federal spending on Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Now, the Trump administration is seeking $2.8 billion in the 2019 budget year to increase the number of beds in immigration detention centers to 52,000—49,500 adult and 2,500 family beds—from about 40,000 now, a spokeswoman said.

    Here's who's making money from immigration enforcement

    The Trump administration's much-publicized increase in immigration enforcement is also increasing the bottom line for for-profit prisons and other companies from the private sector, with many signing multimillion-dollar contracts with the Department of Homeland Security. "A lot of people imagine immigration detention as being a government-only function, but there are private contractors throughout the entire immigration enforcement and detention system," said Jeremy Mohler, communications director of the research and policy group In the Public Interest. Running a massive nationwide government operation requires organization and technology.

    About the List: South Florida's highest paid CEOs still earn most of their compensation in stock awards

    South Florida’s highest-paid CEOs are still earning most of their pay through stock awards. As companies’ compensation committees continue to push for performance-based pay over high salaries, stock awards remain the go-to reward for many South Florida executives. Stock awards accounted for more than 51 percent of overall compensation among the 25 highest-paid CEOs in the region in 2017.

    Prison Operators Could Cash In on ‘Zero Tolerance’ Immigration Policy

    The biggest private prison operators, which have poured money into Republican coffers, stand to make a windfall from President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration that has pushed thousands of undocumented immigrants into detention. The Department of Homeland Security is considering adding space for 15,000 additional people in family detention centers, about five times current capacity, even as the number of border crossings declines. GEO Group Inc. and CoreCivic Inc., which each run a facility that holds immigrant families in Texas, have made more than $2.5 million in combined political donations since 2015.

    These companies are expected to profit from Trump’s continued ‘zero-tolerance’ policy at the border

    The Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border generated weeks of outrage, but for some federal contractors it’s also generating profits, analysts say. Under Trump’s policy, launched in April, anyone who crosses the border without authorization is subject to criminal prosecution, even if they are seeking asylum.

    ICE overspends tax dollars on a detention policy many Americans find abhorrent

    The Trump administration's recent immigration crackdown has clearly been a boon for the private companies that own, manage and supply federal detention centers. A recent report from the Government Accountability Office found that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement division of the Department of Homeland Security had ended up spending more than originally budgeted to house detainees. In response to the GAO report in April, ICE officials said they had recently improved the process of estimating costs for the 2020 budget cycle, and they promised to "work to more effectively" to document the agency's cost reviews.

    Investors Grapple With the Immigration Crisis

    Sustainable investors, playing the long game, are engaging with companies to strengthen human-rights practices even after the Trump administration decided to rescind its executive order to separate migrant families at the border, deciding to keep families together in custody. Sister Nora Nash, who oversees retirement funds for the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, told Barron’s that she is working with JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Wells Fargo (WFC), “financial institutions who support legislation on human rights, and asking them to do due diligence on financing prisons.” Earlier this week, Nash says, she had written half a dozen companies, including the two banks, “to ask their CEOs to address the issue at the border.” After Nash sent the letters, she says, the Business Roundtable—a group of CEOs of major corporations chaired by JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon—issued a statement urging the administration “to end immediately the policy of separating accompanied minors from their parents.
