Private prison companies like Geo Group and CoreCivic (formerly known as CCA) are profiting off mass incarceration and President Trump’s Zero Tolerance policy. Thanks to OpenSecrets.org, I was able to look at their PAC contributions (they contribute more through their company employees, etc) and look who their biggest recipients are? Both companies also get more than 40% of their revenues from federal contracts!
