Overview

This paper was writing during a course in Introduction to Corrections at Bellevue College. It takes a look at the use of commercial prisons throughout America.

Opening Paragraph:

It hit Miguel Sevilla like a ton of bricks. Each click of the cuffs tightening their grip on his wrists brought forward another memory from when he was a teenager. Click, he squirms under the rusted metal fence and runs for cover in complete darkness. Click, spotlights erupt like miniature explosions. Click, voices he can’t understand yell in every direction and everyone runs to escape. Click, the men are gone and the sun has risen, bring with it an unbearable heat. Click, He’s near exhaustion and beginning to hallucinate as a van stops and he his ushered inside and given water. Click, time passes and he learns English and finds work to send money home to his family. But that was years ago, and now Miguel finds himself sitting inside another van. Only this van is much cleaner and features the emblem of the U. S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency also known as I.C.E.
