Alternate Title: EO 14006: Reforming Our Incarceration System to Eliminate the Use of Privately Operated Criminal Detention Facilities
From the Document: "More than two million people are currently incarcerated in the United States, including a disproportionate number of people of color. There is broad consensus that our current system of mass incarceration imposes significant costs and hardships on our society and communities and does not make us safer. To decrease incarceration levels, we must reduce profit-based incentives to incarcerate by phasing out the Federal Government's reliance on privately operated criminal detention facilities."
