Regrets Farallon's $34M investment in corporate prisons

A key liability [in Steyer's portfolio history] is Farallon's 2005 investment of $34 million in Corrections Corp. of America (CCA), which runs migrant detention centers on the US-Mexico border for ICE. Many of the roughly two dozen Democrats in the presidential race have denounced profits from incarceration as immoral. "I deeply regret that Farallon made that investment, and I personally ordered the investment in CCA to be sold because it did not accord with my values then or now," Steyer said.

Backs bill to release accused criminals who can't pay bail

Liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, who has been pushing for President Donald Trump's impeachment and recently spent $3 million to register Latino voters, also is working hard this week to resuscitate a California state bill that would end the process of demanding thousands of dollars in cash bail from suspected criminals. The measure is aimed at trying to ensure that accused criminals awaiting trial do not remain in jail solely because they cannot afford to pay bail.
