Protest at T Don Hutto Detention Center

Protest on 8-22-09 at the T Don Hutto Detention Center in Taylor Texas that house immigrant families awaiting court hearing. Organized by Antonio Diaz, Texas Indigenous Council and Free the Children Coalition. This Protest is to remind all that the T.D.Hutto Residential Center will not be closing but merely shifting detainee population. Children will be sent to Berks Co. Penn. an 82 bed facility,yet there are at least127 children at T.D.Hutto. Many questions remain. Women are the core the heart of the family unit. T.D. Hutto will imprison mainly women only after Dec.2009 when the contract between CCA and Williamson Co. expires. But when necessary children may still be imprisoned at T.D. Hutto.
