Stop Crete Detention Center

Local citizens fight Crete prison.

The Village of Crete, is in negotiations with both Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and Corrections Corporation of America, a private company, to build a 750-bed combined maximum and minimum security prison.

Mayor Michael Einhorn and the village trustees can stop this by withdrawing from all negotiations on the prison. We're calling on the mayor and the trustees to listen to and stand with the citizens of Crete and the surrounding towns that would be adversely affected by this project.

That's why I signed a petition to Michael Einhorn, mayor, which says:
"Stop the Detention Center project in Crete."

Thanks!

But wait...won't that create jobs? Not only that, but since the signing of NDAA we're going to need that prison space for all us Americans, no? I mean, they're saying riots are coming and that sort of thing. Just look at the #OWS movement, it could happen. Where will we put all those protesters? In FEMA camps or what? I'm so confused.
