The Human Rights Defense Center (HRDC) and other advocacy organizations are urging the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to regulate debit release cards.
The organizations are asking the CFPB to prohibit the fees associated with them and giving prisoners the ability to opt out of these debit cards when they are released from prisons or jail.
Extensive financial abuse of prisoners by the financial industry and government agencies illustrates the need for regulation by the CFPB.
