Texas? Federal Govt? No, the UN is coming to Texas to investigate the Taylor Detention Center

27 April 2007 at 9:13:01 AM

Not that I'm against an independent eye coming down to investigate WHY immigrant children are being housed in a PRISON in central Texas, and that person, Jorge Bustamente, will present his findings to a general session at the UN. But wouldn't you think that the United States or the state of Texas would have FIXED this first?????  Since it's a human rights issue which the US is supposed to be premier at? (Except that the US is no longer any kind of example to the world, but one the world must shun and investigate for human rights abuses).

Bustamante, a Mexican, will discuss migrant issues with American government officials, campaign groups and immigrants during the mission that includes stops in Tucson, Ariz.; Austin, Texas; Fort Myers, Fla.; New York; and Washington, D.C.

He also will visit the T. Don Hutto facility, a former prison in Taylor, Texas, that typically houses about 400 non-criminal immigrants awaiting deportation or other outcomes to their immigration cases.

Earlier this month, a U.S. district judge said living conditions seemed "questionable" at the facility. Civil liberties and immigration advocates contend families at Hutto are subjected to psychologically abusive guards, inadequate medical care and inhumane conditions and that the facility is run like a prison. They sued federal officials in March on behalf of several children detained at the center

I have recently been told that Sr. Bustamante is being denied permission to visit the T Don Hutto residential facility.

I am trying to confirm this at this time.
