Sen. Scott slams Bank of America


Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) is calling out Bank of America after the bank announced that they would no longer be lending money to detention centers and private prisons.

In a statement, Bank of America informed that “the private sector is attempting to respond to public policy and government needs and demands in the absence of long standing and widely recognized reforms needed in criminal justice and immigration policies.”

In addition, Bank of America commented that “lacking further legal and policy clarity, and in recognition of the concerns of our employees and stakeholders in the communities we serve, it is our intention to exit these relationships.”
