Immigration activists see their campaign to get banks to divest from private prison companies as a backdoor way to abolish U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by taking away its capacity to detain illegals caught crossing the southern border.

“It goes even beyond ICE,” Daniel Carrillo, executive director of Freedom to Thrive, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Immigration should be a right.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Freedom to Thrive, formerly known as Enlace, has pushed major financial institutions and banks, including JPMorgan Chase, to divest from private prisons since 2010, Carrillo said. The group’s stated goal is to “end the punishment-based criminal and immigration systems.”

Activists have focused on two prison companies in particular, CoreCivic and GEO Group. JPMorgan and several other major banks raised $1.8 billion in debt financing with CoreCivic and GEO Group in 2018, according to reports.

JPMorgan Chase is the latest to stop financing CoreCivic and GEO Group amid activist pressure, following in the footsteps of Wells Fargo and U.S. Bank. Now, Carrillo and other activists want to see Bank of America and others follow suit.

“We operate with open borders,” Carrillo said with regards to free trade policies. “Why do we draw the line with people?”

    And other group that are not talking about immigration the right way. I’m for immigration a time for legal immigration coming in Legally the way our ancestors did. It’s true that we are being invaded and it’s disgusting and corrupt that the Democrats are allowing this. Time to put the military at the border and let the border patrol and Military fire upon these people that are bringing disease and criminals to the United States.
