CBS News reports:
In April, protesters outside the nation’s largest facility for unaccompanied migrant children noticed a familiar face enter the massive, fenced site in Homestead, Florida: former White House chief of staff John Kelly. Soon after, a local television station recorded footage of him riding on the back of a golf cart as he toured the grounds.
It wasn’t clear why he was there, but Friday, Caliburn International confirmed to CBS News that Kelly had joined its board of directors. Caliburn is the parent company of Comprehensive Health Services, which operates Homestead and three other shelters for unaccompanied migrant children in Texas.

John Kelly joining the board of a company operating the largest unaccompanied migrant children shelter after he oversaw the implementation of state-sanctioned kidnapping from migrant families is some sick, dystopian stuff. https://t.co/QMCL3rfZBM

John Kelly once dismissed concerns about family separation by saying “the children will be taken care of.” He’s now going to work for a private prison company holding the children DHS kidnapped from their families. #TellEveryVoter https://t.co/UWs5VfF4ge
