Multiple protestors have been arrested in Nashville after blockading the entrance to the headquarters of private prison operator CoreCivic, The Tennessean reports. The protestors, who set up tents at the facility, were demonstrating against the company’s practices, including its contracts with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. In a statement, CoreCivic said that the company “plays a valued but limited role in America’s immigration system” and claimed that the activists had reached “misguided conclusions” due to inaccurate information shared by special interest groups.
