Trump Administration Sues California Over Private Prison Ban

The Trump administration sued the state of California on Friday, asserting that a new state law that bans for-profit prison contracts unconstitutionally interferes with the federal prison and immigration detention systems. The case, filed in U.S. District Court in San Diego, asks a judge to ban the enforcement of the law against the federal government. “California, of course, is free to decide that it will no longer use private detention facilities for its state prisoners and detainees,” the lawsuit said. “But it cannot dictate that choice for the federal government, especially in a manner that discriminates against the federal government and those with whom it contracts.” Assembly Bill 32, which took effect Jan. 1, prohibits new private detention contracts in California and changes to current contracts. It phases out existing facilities entirely by 2028. Read the full story on LATimes.com.

Corovirus Outbreak Casts Pall Over Lunar New Year Celebrations

Healthcare workers in the Chinese city of Wuhan say hospitals are running low on supplies as they struggle to cope with the outbreak of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus. It comes as the Chinese central government announced on Saturday it would send more than 1,200 health workers — as well as 135 People’s Liberation Army medical personnel — to the city in an unprecedented effort to contain the spread of the virus. Forty-one people have now been killed by the Wuhan coronavirus, with some 1,400 confirmed cases worldwide — the majority of which are in China. China’s state-run Xinhua news agency reported that 237 patients are in critical condition. The outbreak in China has cast a pall over Lunar New Year celebrations — the country’s most important holiday — with festivities canceled in Beijing, Hong Kong and other major cities.
