On January 26, the president ordered the Department of Justice to end its reliance on private prisons.

While on the campaign trail, Biden had vowed to end federal government use of all private prisons, including ICE facilities.

Biden's order directs the attorney general not to renew Justice Department contract with privately-run criminal detention facilities.

“This is a first step to stop corporations from profiting off of incarceration,” he said.

The federal Bureau of Prisons had already opted not to renew some private prison contracts in recent months as the number of inmates dwindled and thousands were released to home confinement because of the coronavirus pandemic.
