CoreCivic Statement on HQ Demonstration - August 6, 2018 

CoreCivic plays a valued but limited role in America’s immigration system, which we have done for every administration – Democrat and Republican – for more than 30 years. While we know this is a highly charged, emotional issue for many people, much of the information about our company being shared by special interest groups is wrong and politically motivated, resulting in some people reaching misguided conclusions about what we do. The fact is our sole job is to help the government solve problems in ways it could not do alone – to help manage unprecedented humanitarian crises, dramatically improve the standard of care for vulnerable people, and meet other critical needs efficiently and innovatively.

It’s clear that this group would rather use divisive rhetoric and falsehoods than engage in a fact-based discussion about the many challenges facing our country that we work every day to address. Despite the protesters' choice to engage in disruptive behavior, CoreCivic employees are continuing to keep communities safe, enroll thousands of inmates in reentry programs that prepare them for life after prison, and help manage humanitarian crises. We simply will not be deterred from helping the most vulnerable among us, and we’ve been gratified by the outpouring of support we’ve received encouraging us to keep working with our government partners to solve problems in ways they could not do alone.
