State & Local Government Contracts with CoreCivic and GEO

Kristin Mink

CoreCivic and GEO run most of the federal government’s detention camps for migrants. They’re also the two largest private prison companies in the U.S. However, contracts with the federal government only make up about half of their revenue. Most of their other contracts are with state and local governments, for county jails and the like.

Denver, Colorado just made national news when their city council, led by Councilmember Candi CdeBaca, decided to end their contracts with CoreCivic and GEO.

I used CoreCivic and GEO’s 10-K reports to the SEC to compile a list of all the other CoreCivic and GEO facilities contracted with state and local entities, so you can pressure your governor and state legislature, and/or your city or county councilmembers to end contracts with the companies profiting substantially off the pain of immigrants.

Pressure your state and local electeds to end contracts with CoreCivic and GEO, the private prison companies making millions off kids in cages.

What follows is NOT a list of ICE facilities. Those exist in every state, and a map can be found at Freedom For Immigrants. This is also not a list of all state and local private prisons — just those run by CoreCivic and GEO.
