A group of Houston activists calling themselves Houston Sin Fronteras has posted a story and pictures of another protest at CCA’s Houston Processing Center, an immigrant detention center which was the nation’s first private prison. KHOU also covered the protest.

This month’s protest was the third this summer. The first, in June, included an act of civil disobedience in which two activists locked themselves to the facility's gates. While a Houston grand jury refused to indict the protestors on felony charges, they are still facing misdemeanor charges, and several thousand dollars in legal fees are still outstanding.

Contact Houston Sin Fronteras through their myspace page to make a donation to the legal defense fund.
