In 2009, judges Michael Conahan and Mark Ciavarella pled guilty to sending children ages 10 to 18 to juvenile detention centers in exchange for kickbacks from these privately run facilities.

Deportation and Family Separation

In 2011, almost 400,000 people were deported from the United States and more than 360,000 were detained by ICE. According to a recent report by Race Forward, 22 percent of deported immigrants are parents of children who are U.S. citizens.
