Assembly Bill 32 (AB-32) is expected to bring a major halt to the private prison industry in the state of California and will likely close down four ICE detention facilities. While the private prison industry in California has decreased during the last three years, this bill would phase out private prisons by 2028 and would only allow the use of private prisons if necessary to comply with a court-ordered prison population cap.
