McFarland City Council Approves For-Profit Detention Centers

The McFarland City Council Meet last Thursday and voted in favor of a plan by the GEO group to expand the company’s for-profit detention centers in Mcfarland. Despite calls to postpone the meeting, council members says the decision was rushed due to the town’s financial situation. 

“The city manager stated that [due to] financial urgencies it was necessary to move forward so that we can start to receive funds,”

Despite concerns, Council members chose to vote in favor of the plan, making the decision unanimous.
