Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Prison developers and SB1070 Governor in AZ Bedfellows After All

I was profoundly moved by this report out of NPR that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, infamous for her creation and enforcement of the SB 1070 law that allows Arizona cops to pull over anyone and make arrests if they just "feel" like someone might be an undocumented person. The atrocity to civil rights aside, she has been linked in the above story from National Public Radio with prison developers who were recorded talking about how they would like to build prisons they would specifically fill with women and children. On how they would detain this population - they worked with Brewer on the shifty SB 1070 so that undocumented persons in Arizona would not be deported, but arrested and incarcerated in one of these prisons! Unbelievable. Grossly true. Between George Bush's denial of any wrongdoing in his latest and bogus biography and this news, I'm going to need a dose of a Latinitas' club in order to restore my faith in humanity!
