Hutto vigil planned for Saturday

I'll be driving out to Taylor for the vigil this Saturday a

t Corrections Corporation of America's notorious T. Don Hutto detention center,

Please join Texans United for Families, Grassroots Leadership, and organizers from across Texas for a vigil to draw attention to the nation's unaccountable and out-of-control detention system. The vigil will mark the one-year anniversary of Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) announced detention reform and the end of family detention at Hutto. ICE currently heralds Hutto as a model detention center despite the recent revelation in May that a CCA guard was accused of sexually assaulting several women detained at this 500-bed facility. 

Texas holds 10,000 beds in detention centers to date, with plans for continued expansion.  Please join us to call for Dignity NOT Detention for immigrants.  The vigil takes place starting at 7pm. For details or carpooling information, please email blibal at grassrootsleadership dot org.
