MANCHESTER, N.H. — Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren says the United States “should get rid of for-profit private prisons,” calling them an outrage.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said Monday at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire that when people leave the prison system, “they need to be reintegrated into their communities.”

She says, “They need to be able to have a chance to get a job, to be able to find decent housing. And they need to be able to participate in the political process and that means they need the right to vote to be reinstated. They are American citizens.”
