Watchdog Group Sues Trump Administration For Docs About John Kelly’s Financial Ties To Detention Centers

CBS News reports:

The nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sued the federal government Monday, demanding that it produce documents related to former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Caliburn International, the operator of the nation’s largest shelter for unaccompanied migrant children.

CBS News reported in May that Kelly had joined the board of directors of Caliburn after leaving the White House. Kelly previously worked for DC Capital Partners, an investment firm that — while Kelly was in the White House and involved in major immigration policy decisions — purchased a company that operated one unaccompanied migrant children shelter in Homestead, Florida. It then folded that company into Caliburn.

“There is a strong public interest in the requested documents. While in government, Kelly was directly involved in implementing the family separation policy, and he now works for a for-profit operator of child detention centers, Caliburn, that has reaped substantial financial benefits from that very policy,” wrote CREW attorney Nikhel Sus.
