Re: The City of Mesa ethnic cleansing scheme took one more step at the last Mesa City Council Meeting.
Not content with clearing the Light Rail Corridor of Mesa Royale Trailer Park residents, they have teamed up with Chase Bank and CoreCivic (a private prison enterprise) to fulfill Donald Trump’s dream of deportation.
The movement to Divest from Chase will continue and the Barrio Defense Committee members will begin with this action to withdraw their money and close their checking and savings accounts until Chase Bank stops financing the private prison complex, stops financing the pipeline at Standing Rock, and the City of Mesa breaks the contract with CoreCivic Private Prison Complex.
The recent 5 million dollar contract with CoreCivic completes the circle of the private prison complex, where Mesa arrestees will be sent to Florence, the same facility that is operated by CoreCivic as an Immigration Detention Center. 

 Now that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is no longer Sheriff, it will bypass the MCSO 4th Avenue Jail process bringing even more profits to CoreCivic and Chase Bank.
We will also ask the affected community and its supporters to withdraw their money from Chase Bank.
