Developments

In April 2018, the Trump administration announced the zero-tolerance immigration policy, which led to a boost in immigration detention business for the technology companies fueling deportations, including Palantir, which may IPO in 2019.

In August 2018, California passed legislation that abolished the cash bail system and replaced it with a risk assessment-based bail system.

In April 2019, Partnerships on A.I., a consortium of technology companies and civil rights groups, released a report warning against the use of risk assessment tools.
