ICE Won't Let UN Human Rights Expert See Children in the Hutto Prison

ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement), the federal agency facing a lawsuit for their imprisonment of children awaiting immigration hearings, is rejecting a visit by a UN human rights expert to take his own look at the prison. Jorge Bustamante is here for a highly-publicized immigration tour, and he'll be able to tour the border region and several cities, but he won't be able to go inside the T. Don Hutto prison.

This comes after revelations in that the Texas Department of Family Protective Service is not authorized to go in to the prison either to check on conditions for the kids... Corrections Corporation of America has managed to get an exemption from the oversight of DFPS. You can read the letter that DFPS sent them online thanks to links at Eye on Williamson.
