California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill on Friday that would eliminate private, for-profit prisons, including those used for immigration detention, by 2028.

Starting on Jan. 2020, the state’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation won’t be able to enter into or renew a contract with a private, for-profit prison to incarcerate people.

The article goes on to state the following:

Operating a private immigration detention facility and incarcerating people in for-profit prisons will be prohibited after Jan. 2028, according to the newly signed law.

Newsom stated, “During my inaugural address, I vowed to end private prisons, because they contribute to over-incarceration, including those that incarcerate California inmates and those that detain immigrants and asylum seekers. These for-profit prisons do not reflect our values.”

“CA is officially banning the use of private, for-profit prisons and immigration detention facilities. The multi-billion dollar industry turning a profit off of incarcerated people must come to an end. No more in California,” he added in a Twitter post.

Twitter users noted this is a blow to ICE, and will likely force them to move immigrant detainees out of state.
