Selling a Private Prison to Lawmakers: A Primer in Three Acts, by Southwest Ranches and CCA

Oh, what fun it must be to be a congressional representative, traveling your home territory in search of causes to support, being bombarded at every turn by lobbyists and carefully crafted P.R. Balancing pork-barrel people-pleasers with national security interests (and those of your campaign donors). 

In the case of the new private immigrant detention facility that's been "fast-tracked" to go up in an ugly corner of Southwest Ranches, contractor CCA and the town wanted a lot of congressional support.

Below, we see how they found a willing ally in Sen. Marco Rubio, carefully choreographed their courtship of Allen West, and got Debbie Wasserman Schultz to sign a letter of support written by Sen. Bill Nelson's office.

The emails tell the tale. Residents who oppose the prison have begun posting on Facebook the fruits of their public-records requests. (More to come in our continued attention to this story.) 

First off, in late January, just after pushing through an amendment to double the planned size of the facility, Southwest Ranches and CCA reps prepared for a February 9 meeting with ICE officials. They already had the support of Rubio -- who offered to come to the meeting as a booster.

But his presence might have attracted unwanted attention to the matters at hand.

CCA's attorney, Sam Poole, sent Southwest Ranches Attorney Keith Poliakoff a word of caution. "CCA is greatly concerned that having a U.S. Senator attend the February 9 meeting with ICE staff would call external attention to the meeting and create a level of discomfort among the reviewers..." Full email below; click to enlarge.

​So that happened, but a month later the planners had to meet with Allen West, who represents the nearby 22nd congressional district. 

Below, in preparation for the meeting, the high-ranking CCA executive Lucibeth Mayberry gives instructions for the presentation, including suggestions for Southwest Ranches Mayor Jeff Nelson. We should note, the highlights in the email below were done by the resident who requested the email and opposes the project.

cca-email-mayberry-west.jpg
​Note that it was Nelson's job to explain why "the community views the prison as a good fit for that location." While the prison might in fact benefit residents by bringing in a long-expected revenue stream, it's been apparent that a portion of Nelson's constituents wouldn't agree with this statement. The project, as the mayor often notes, has been in the works for over a decade... but the current "fast tracking" began after ICE's approval of the site this year.

Then, finally, there's the matter of the local congressional representative, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who co-signed a letter of support for the facility along with Sen. Bill Nelson. In the months to follow, she would write to Nelson decrying the "paucity of information" provided to residents and host a contentious town-hall meeting between residents and pro-prison officials.

But that letter of support didn't start in her office. In fact, in this email sent on April 1, Nelson's office sends CCA attorney Sam Poole Becker & Poliakoff lobbyist Omar Franco a draft of the letter. In a preface, Nelson staffer Jenny Solomon mentions Coby Dolan, Wasserman Schultz's legislative director.

"Feel free to share with Coby if his boss [Wasserman Schultz] wants to join," she wrote.

Eventually, his boss would sign the letter.

Pines votes 4-1 to support and effectively gives full support to CCA Facility.  Party Over!

the legitimacy of this controversy seems to be justified by the amount of people outright denying and poo-pooing any and all arguments in the comments. may the money your masters hoped to reap from the human suffering to take place at this facility burn to ash.

The fact is ......

1)  if you talk to most people living in the area 10 years of more, they had never heard of plans to put a prison out there.  Somehow all news of easements, SFWMD conflicts, BSO contract changes, road widenings, town celebrations was all well publicized and even discussed in Monthly newsletters.   Yet if you interview the residents, most all say the same thing .... "first learned of this early this year" ....... AFTER the one and only PUBLIC MEETING on November 10, 2010.

2) Quite often in these small town deals, there is a failure for the Town to cover all the bases and be sure they have protected themselves from "Hollywood Accounting".  The result ..... do some research and you will find that most often, small towns that ink these deals thinking they are going to reap big financial rewards, NEVER SEE half of the money they thought they would see. Years later after they are asking the question . "How did this happen, it was not supposed to work this way".Simple example --  NPDES Stormwater Permits, Florida Everglades impact surveys, etc... are required by the Fed for this kind of building.

The simple question was raised a week ago asking of this had been taken into consideration by the Town so that CCA is obligated to cover such costs by contract.If not, and a future EPA audit and/or engineering is required, it would fall back on the Town/County to cover those costs. 

Surprise ............ it was discovered that it had NOT been done !

The ramifications ?

A simple real world example.......... Up North ,  a small town inked a deal with Wal-Mart.The Wal-Mart came in, built a superstore and massive parking lot.The stormwater (rain water) run off started flooding a nearby residential section and flowing hundreds of thousands of gallons of water into the nearby major river.

EPA came in and inquired about the NPDES permit and how they runoff was going to be either contained and treated or the location re-engineered.

The small Town with their glazed eyes focused on the dangling carrot of easy tax money had never written that consideration into the contract.The Wal-Mart was Not obligated to cover those costs.

So now the end result ?The Town/County must pay the $2.8 million is costs to deal with this problem.Considering the $300,000 in annual tax revenue they thought they were going to see, they are now going to see NOTHING for almost 9.5 years because they have to spend all that $$$$ for this.

3) People seem to have disregard for these issues and figure it is not a problem as long as it is not in their backyard.  (Roxette here).     The reality is we still have enough open & isolated land in America  such that NOBODY should have to have these types of facilities in their neighborhoods.   And YES, despite what the media would have you think, this prison site is surrounded on three sides by homes that are 0.1 - 0.2 miles away.

It is easy to find locations 2-5 miles remote from residential areas.

It is only private shady deals (political and personal) that results in even having the nutty idea of putting a prison 1/4 mile away from $1 million homes when 35-45 minutes away are thousands of isolated and cheaper acreages of land in isolated remote areas.

4) Public Support ?Where was the Ballot question and voting ?It would have been easy enough any time over the past few years to offer the residents a choice in options for handling the Town's tax revenue  situation if the town council were real leaders and cared about truly representing the people .....Example -In order to meet the town's revenue needs would you prefer .(a)  Expanding the existing Landfill for increased revenue ?(b) Pay $890 per household more per year in Property Taxes ?(c) Allow the building and operation of an CCA managed ICE Detention Center for Illegals ?

5)  If the USA was serious about dealing with Illegal immigration and establishing some Zero tolerance to stop the problem instead of doing things like suing its own States who try to deal with it, there would already be a clear message that illegal entry to the USA would not be tolerated and would be met with SEVERE actions and enforcements.In that case, the flood of people who now keep coming would have trickled down considerably and there would be no need for more facilities such as this.

Seriously, there is something very suspect in how the Fed refuses to deal with illegal immigration to deter it with strong force, yet is happy enough to keep building more and more facilities such as this to "process:" people.There are now five (5) new ILLEGAL Detention Centers in various stages of construction aboud the USA today.

Is the Fed trying to artificially create a new industry base ?

Etc..etc..etc..

This article is pretty poor and definitely not up to the Pulp standard. Norman's log in must be rolling over in its digital grave.

In any case, this article highlights one of the downsides of the sunshine laws. Anyone can make a public records request and use official correspondence to spin a story in any direction   they choose, particularly at New Times where there is no editorial accountability. Maybe an email can be found in some government archive that was sent to Attila, another to an Asian named Hun. From there Stefan can erroneously link the two and write that Attila the Hun is back, Kansan can swear to it, and  Di Scipio can gather the house fraus and protest it; all claiming that Hun is on the take, and colluding with corrupt local officials.  

These emails are real but the "story" being written is not! What is true is that Ortis and Sipel both were aware of and voted on the agreements they are now rejecting. Hmm, its election season, both are in a qualifying period for their seats. Hmm, someone step up and challenge them rather than waste time protesting and doing public records requests. Throw the bums out!

It's clear to me that Nelson and Schultz got snookered into supporting an awful proposal that was sneaked by locals with no input from the community.  They did not have adequate information on the proposal before they lent their support.

I'm glad to hear that "seriously" will vote for each, because on balance, they've been very good representatives for Florida and the opposition would be a nightmare. He (?) is voting the right way for the wrong reason.

Who cares!!!! These stories are poorly written and are getting way old. There has to be something more important in this County going on.  Why not focus on the land fill out there.  This deal is happening no matter what, so we should look to the future and should make sure the final agreement protect us.  Glad to see that our elected leaders were actually working with CCA so that they knew what was going on.  Also, glad they met with the Congressional leaders first.  Nothing in this report is even remotely interesting or surprising.  This just wasted 5 minutes of my time to read and to try to make sense out of why this was even written.

Schultz and West? Now there's a pair:

     Rep. Allen West, a first-term Republican from south Florida, wasn't shy about his online outburst. He sent his peppery email to numerous lawmakers as well as his target, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.The subject line of the email: "Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman Schultz."     The e-mail said: "Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up."     In her remarks on the House floor, Wasserman Schultz said: "The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida."

Schultz and Nelson should have known better.  West on the other hand knows which side his bread is buttered on.

to all of those saying they should have known.  Do you know what planning or zoning EVERY lot in your community or city has assign? I bet you not, and i bet Roxette5015 doesnt know either.  I bought a house in 2011 in Pembroke Pines.  I never knew there were plans to build a detention center or another prison because that land was part of another town.  Nobody wants you to know because if not the houses wouldnt sell.

Also the government is at fault, how the hell do you construct 9 schools in a 5 mile radius from this area knowing the zoning of the area. 

Im sorry Roxette5015 but we didnt know.  An SWR has kept this secret very well.  You should read the emails that we have seen coming from the rat attorney from SWR.  You would be surprise at how they were and are dealing with the situation.

Roxette5015

This entire issue is ridiculous. The bottom line is that these people in the surrounding areas moved into this neighborhood with a PRISON, a DUMP, INDUSTRIAL LAND, and 2 PROPERTIES ZONED FOR PRISONS.  They should thank their lucky stars that they are getting a detention center and not a real prison, or garbage incinerator or something else much more offensive that the area is already zoned for.  What did they think would be built there - a park? Or a mall?  Who would send their kid to a park next to a prison and a dump?  Who would build a mall there?  It's ridiculous.

Son, please describe where I've said ANYBODY is on the take.  Libel from an anonymous perch is a bit cowardly, wouldn't you say, which is partly why I've asked you to identify yourself.

Frankly, many of you are too cowardly to actually identify yourself because you all know I'm right and you've all been hoodwinked by the pied piper and you don't want to be on record.

To your point, I have used politician's own words to point out the lies and half truths.  I have been very careful not to state that somebody is on the take because at this point I have no evidence that is the case.  If you look at my Facebook picture, you will see that I am calling you all a bunch of Stepford Wives for the spooky hypnotic state that leaves you all mesmerized by CCA's promises.

I have shed light on which politicians are working against the will of the citizenry.  I've even had my work recognized by Congresswoman Schultz when she took Mayor Nelson to task for a "paucity of public information."

Regarding the duplicity of Iris, Ortis and Castillo, you haven't been following my writing, now, have you?  I listen to Poliakoff intently and agree with him and you on this point.

Why don't you tell us who you are so we can bring this debate on to an equal playing field.  Or perhaps your knowledge of civics leads you to believe that real debates occur between a named person and an anonymous blog respondent where you can libel me.

If Nelson or Schultz felt "snookered" I am sure they would have pulled their support.  Instead, they clearly realize that less than 1% of the impacted population actually cares (the same 2 who Comment on all of these inaccurate articles), and as such have maintained their support.  They are apparently great leaders who are advocating for the actual will of their electorate, and are not reacting to the vocal minority.

Excellent point.  Most residents do not know about these Prisons plans because they are not advertised as topics in the Town Council meetings that are open to the public, but were most likely not heavily attended.  BUT YET, look what happened after it was Publicized and people found out !     But forget for a moment that the average citizen was not there to monitor every minute of every meeting for 14 years to see what the Town tried to quietly discuss when the room was mostly empty .............. How do you explain and justify those Towns and Count themselves (who did know) to keep building multiple schools and higher end residential homes RIGHT UP to the 3 surrounding perimeter edges of the planned prison site ?      I clocked it in my car yesterday.   People are living within 0.1  -  0.2 miles of the facility on three sides !      Only the US27 side actually has some open space.

You're dreaming, Roxy...

There is no difference between a prison and a detention center other than the sign over the door.

If CCA provisionally got a contract, then lost it before or after they dealt with their first prisoners in that location, they would go anywhere to get convicts to fill it up.  They have their Tallahatchie, MS, riot-ridden prison filled with California gang bangers, for instance, and they and the state of Mississippi just agreed to back out of a second contract, with a third possibly on the block for termination.  They now have many closed prisons, such as Appleton, MN, Watonga, OK, Walsenburg, CO, etc., and their stock has taken a nose dive as a result. It was at $26.00 just six months ago and is selling for just  $21.40 just now. That means it has dropped 18%, or 3% per month.

The competition is no better off.  Despite using all their available case for a buyback a few months ago, GEO's stock has dropped to $17.14 as of a minute ago. It's down 28% in seven months, so it's losing 4% of its value every month. It has empty prisons around the country as well. At Baldwin, Michigan, they built a juvenile prison for a non-existent population thanks to a corrupt governor. The new governor cancelled the contract and it shut down for five years or so.  Then they quadrupled its size, intent on getting immigrant detainees, just like CCA at Pembroke Pines/Southwest Ranches. The detainees never materialized, so they shopped around for any convicts from anywhere, finally filling a small part of the prison with, you guessed it, California gang bangers.  They'll  probably lose that contract in January and it will close once more, but no safer and better paying industry will ever think of locating there, even if the pen is empty.  

You're also assuming that all the buyers had done their homework and knew about CCA's buying that property, and getting annexed into Southwest Ranches, not being part of Pembroke Pines, so the neighbors could actually participate in the process of what their neighborhood would be like.That's not likely. No real estate agent is going to tell them that. The project had been on hold for over ten years, longer than most of the residents have lived there.

For-profit prisons and their transport arms have 30 to 50 times as many escapes as do public prisons and transportation services. There was an escape in Gadsden just this weekend, where a van full of convicts overpowered the guard while the driver was in a McDonalds.  You would be amazed at how often this happens when you have ill-trained, badly screened, low paid, high turnover temp employees entrusted with public safety by executives only concerned with their own bonuses.

If this were true, why does Polikoffs own letter to the mayor of S.W. Ranches and all the politico's involved suggests that they keep this Hush Hush and do not inform the public?

Government by the people and for the people is what we are supposed to have - What we actually have is Government by the Politicians for increased tax revenues and back door deals to personally enrich themselves.

Their specialty is escapes, riots and overbilling state, local and federal governments for millions of dollars, while their executives are millionaires.  Five years ago their president and CEO was making $2 million a month, while guards were making barely above minimum wage.

Go to YouTube and look up "Gladiator School," if you want to see how they run a prison. Their employees have regularly had to take them to court in class action cases and they've settled for many millions in unpaid wages.

That's easy:

1.  You write that a portion of Mayor Nelson's constituents wouldn't agree that this project would bring in a revenue stream?  Really?  What portion would that be, since I think all would agree that it will bring in a revenue stream.

2.  You write that Sen. Nelson's staffer sent Sam Poole a draft letter.  Even your e-mail stream shows that to be inacurrate.

Now that you know, feel free to correct your factual errors.For a longer story, why not write about the benefits of this facility.  Your views as a journalist (if you can be called a journalist) are so slanted, it is scary.

There are some time honored precepts in the world. Newtonian physics, the law of gravity, the second law of thermodynamics.

In political circles, another is honored fairly universally. Maybe it's the first law of putative infallibility: "Don't ever admit that you did something wrong."

Nelson and Schultz need to ask for a pardon for this turkey. And not like Sarah Palin did.

Let's quote Kamph.  He said: "While the prison might in fact benefit residents by bringing in a long-expected revenue stream, it's been apparent that a portion of Nelson's constituents wouldn't agree with this statement."

I and others disagree that it will NET a revenue stream.  It may bring in a stream on one side and bleed it on the expense side.  Where is his factual error, SOS?   I also know of others in the Town who disagree that this will produce a positive revenue stream.

I note that "Seriously" (seriously?) has refused to acknowledge or otherwise respond to your question, rather than using diversionary tactics.

I suspect that you've asked the question to which an honest answer would expose him (her?, but I doubt it) to even more ridicule.

I suspect also that (s)he's some low-level professional troll laboring in the basement at CCA's command center in Nashville (which was picketed by Occupy Nashville yesterday).

It could of course be one of those millionaire flacks, Steve Owens, Louise Gilchrist/Chickering/Grant or some other overpaid stooge.  Had I thought of it, I would have asked someone to stand outside HQ with an airport greeter sign with "Seriously" on it to see if (s)he didn't respond.

Who else would so stupid as to claim to you that you didn't provide "facts,"  but when I provided facts that (s)he (It? Could be a robotic response, I guess) requested, chose to completely mischaracterize what I'd written.

"Seriously" wrote: "Oh I get it, your (sic) now saying that all political contributions are bribes. I missed that."

All political contributions are not bribes, of course. Case in point: CCA not only gave to corporate insider, Tennessee Senate candidates Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, but to their primary and general election opponents. They weren't buying votes, but were making sure the door remained open in case they had to get those votes to keep the corporation exempt from Federal FOIA requirements.

At that point they could be talking some serious compensation.

To suggest that CCA doesn't bribe is a much greater stretch. CCA hired Deputy Director of the Bureau of Prisons Rick Seiter at a starting compensation of about $1 million annually in 2005. When Seiter's former boss, FBOP Director and dipsomaniac Harley Lappin, rabbited out of there to take his prize, the VP for Corrections slot at CCA, after successively catching a big DUI and then 20+ over the speed limit earlier this year, Seiter quickly and graciously stepped aside, a.k.a., "retired," from his seatwarmer spot. 

It's also unlikely to have been a coincidence that Gilchrist/Chickering/Grant's predecessor as CCA Director of Marketing was John Reese, another fine fellow with a career-long fondness for the sauce with a million + salary, resigned to become the Director of Corrections for presumptive felon-to-be Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher.  (Ernie avoided the pen himself by preemptively pardoning the nine or so indictees and "targets" who would be most likely to turn state's evidence against him.) 

Rees appeared to reciprocate Fletcher's thoughtfulness placing him in a position where he would apparently be satisfied with a million dollar pay cut as a reward for truly serving the people. He served the people by ignoring years of rampant sexual abuse of Hawaiian and Kentucky women at CCA's Otter Creek "rape factory," and fined CCA a pittance of $10,000 for their riot by Vermont and Kentucky male prisoners that probably cost state and local police, EMTs and firefighters and a SORT team from Eastern Kentucky state pen to subdue the rioters before the started streaming out through the tacky, compromised fences. Prior to that the cutups had rolled up fences like venetian blinds and tore down a guard tower to use its supports as battering rams. He made sure that subcontractors such as Aramark could pad quarterly profits by feeding prisoners maggot-infested scraps until they finallly rioted and burned over $10 million worth of buildings at Northpoint.

Hopefully, that will satisfy "Seriously's" voracious search for facts, this morning.  If not, I'd be happy to supply as many more as might fit his or her requirements.

Just drop me a note.  Always happy to oblige.

So every time a city makes a decision on an important item, it should be put up to a vote of its citizens? Wake up, that is not how a representative democracy works. Lets expand that out to county, state and federal decisions, the effect would be citizens in the voting booth continuously. We elect our leaders make these decisions. Just because you dont like a particular decision, dont think the rest of our government should change. Take a college level civics course and learn how the system works.
