WyoFile has done some great, in-depth stories on the proposed ICE detention center, including recent reporting that the upper limit on number of beds has increased from 500 to 1000, the original private prison company, Management Training Corporation, has walked away from the project and private prison company, CoreCivic, has stepped in. A guest editorial by Bishop Steven Biegler, Diocese of Cheyenne, notes that for-profit prison companies are known for “cost-cutting, poorly run facilities, and abuse.” Bishop Biegler encourages the people of Wyoming to sign petitions and write letters.
