CCA Go Away
Update: CCA and ICE will no longer build a new detention center in
As part S.W.E.R.’s vision of a world free of fear and unjust criminalization, we oppose Corrections Corporation of America’s goal to build a new massive detention center in South Florida.
The detention center will be located just west of 196 Ave, between Sheridan St and Stirling Rd. The land is within the jurisdiction of Southwest Ranches, but it is contiguous to Pembroke Pines and only five minutes away from Weston neighborhoods. It will be one of the largest detention centers in the country with capacity of up to 2,000 beds.
This new detention center will only increase unfair detentions and separation of families, while CCA just profits of our pain.
