But the real story had played itself out over the previous three years--and it wasn't so much about environmental malaise as about shady deals, political horse-trading, and a deeply unsavory power grab by a series of private companies and middlemen looking to make a quick buck from the economic misery of Encinal--a town of 600 people 40 miles north of Laredo--and surrounding La Salle County. It's a salient warning of the problems this kind of business generates, as Texas now debates bills that would essentially allow the wholesale privatization of its enormous prison system, and as the federal government touts the benefits of privately run federal facilities.
