The Guild is one of 9 organizations who sent a letter to Patrick Leahy and Jeff Sessions opposing the nomination of Stacia Hylton for head of the U.S. Marshals Service on the grounds that she has a conflict of interest. As Federal Detention Trustee from 2004 to 2010 she developed close relationships with private prison companies contracting with the government to house prisoners, including detainees for the U.S. Marshals Service; she received large consulting fees from one of those companies.
TAKE ACTION NOW!
Hylton's nomination is scheduled for a hearing on November 17!
Please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee (listed below) to express opposition to the Hylton nomination. Note that the first two offices listed are for the Committee's leadership. If any of the Committee members represent your state, make sure to mention that when you call!
You can mention her conflict of interest due to accepting consulting fees from GEO Group, or cite other information available here. Please be polite and respectful when you call, and ask to speak with the Senator's judiciary staff.
