How Securus Technologies is Changing the Lives of People

In correctional facilities, it is of the essence to ensure that the safety of the inmates, as well as that of the correctional officers, is guaranteed at all times. This can be achieved by installing security systems such as monitoring security cameras. In Dallas Texas, for instance, Securus Technologies is the entrusted company mandated with providing security and safety services to individuals working or incarcerated in correctional facilities.

Though Securus Technologies has been designed to provide monitoring services to correctional facilities, different people have used this technology to monitor their own households. With this in mind, various opinions have been aired by different people regarding the services offered by the company. According to the chairman and the acting Chief Executive Officer of Securus Technology Mr. Richard Smith, the company develops a new product or new service on a daily basis. This is done to ensure that every user who uses the technology has the latest products that guarantee them of their security and above the par services.

Just like a regular company, Securus Technologies receives a substantial amount of feedback from its clients. The company understands and values the feedback obtained from their clients. This can be attributed to the fact that without the clients, there can be no Securus Technologies.

Some of the feedback obtained from the clients portrays a large number of highly satisfied clients. Some attribute the arrest of corrupt officials, drug peddlers, and reporting of real data to Securus Technologies. Based on the comments and feedback obtained from the clients, it is evident that most of them are a happy lot.

Securus Technologies was founded in 1986 with the aim of providing security by monitoring the activities of inmates. With more than three decades in the industry, Securus Technologies has invested more than $600 million in technology, acquisitions, and patents. Some of its most successful technological acquisition was a system that could control the sale or distribution of contraband cell phones.

DREAMers Called Back Into Action

Caving to demands from the Governor of Texas and attorneys general from nine states, President Donald Trump ordered an end to a program offering essential protections for migrant children, then later called on congress to pass immigration legislation to replace it, leaving the future of 800,000 childhood arrivals shrouded in confusion. Legislators have six months before the program phases out.

 

In a recent article on FronteraFund.org, Carmen Carnejo makes a rallying cry of her own, calling on immigrants and allies to fight these alarming developments by “organizing with the same fervor as we did in 2012,” referring to the DREAMer movement that culminated the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program implemented by the Obama Administration via executive order.

 

As its name suggests, DACA is a renewable deferral program that protects certain undocumented residents from deportation, as long as they arrived as a minor, received a high school education, and meet a few other criteria. Recipients are provided a social security number and work permit, and, in most states, may acquire a driver’s license and access in-state-tuition fees.

 

Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin of the Frontera Fund are on the front lines of immigration rights in the border state of Arizona, and will provide their guidance and assistance in the fight to preserve DACA. The Frontera Fund was founded to benefit Arizona’s embattled Hispanic community, and distributes grants to worthy nonprofit groups that advocate for Hispanic civil rights.

 

Despite repeated defeats in Congress, there is bipartisan support for legislation reform, including protection for DREAMers; in its five years of implementation, DACA beneficiaries have contributed millions to the US economy through higher education, business ownership, and taxable income. The Frontera Fund, along with nonprofits and activists across the country, will continue to fight for a permanent DREAM Act legislation.
