August 29th Driver Park Rally: Recap Part 1

The August 29th Rally was organized to call for a complete moratorium on all immigration enforcement, including deportations and detentions. The original plan for the rally was to call for the shutdown of T. Don Hutto, a prison in which immigrant children were being jailed. Because of the intense work of many, many people, the [...]

Call for Moratorium On Enforcement

Recently, it was announced that children will no longer be sent to the Hutto detention facility.  Many of us see this as a small battle victory in a much larger war against immigrants.  As a result a change in theme has been proposed for the rally on August 29th at Driver Park in Houston.  The proposed new theme is a [...]

Reflections On August 29th And Hutto

Many times, dedicated activists have a hard time taking a victory lap even when due. I think that this is true for many reasons. Others are too ready to declare total victory and move on with their lives. So is the case with Hutto. A few nights ago the feds announced that they would immediately [...]

T. Don Hutto to Stop Jailing Children Immediately

The hard work of thousands of families has paid off: New York Times: feds to stop sending families and children to Hutto. “One move starts immediately: the government will stop sending families to the T. Don Hutto Residential Center, a former state prison near Austin, Tex., that drew an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit and [...]

North Houston CCA Immigration Detention Facility Reeks of Abuse

A new report by the National Immigration Law Center Confirms what most of us have already known: conditions in immigration detention facilities are unacceptable on the best of days and horrid on the worst.   An article in the Gainsville Times describes the report by the National Immigration Law Center, which cites sub-par conditions: The report, [...]

T Don Hutto : America’s Baby Jail

T Don Hutto is a retrofitted prison used, as of 2006, to house immigrant and asylum-seeking children with their families. I have written a little about our protests regarding Hutto, but not much about the details of this baby jail. The children at Hutto have done nothing wrong, and their parents have not been charged with [...]

A group of about two hundred fifty protesters came from all over the state of Texas to demand the shut down of Hutto, a prison which houses immigrant children and families even though they have committed no crime. About fifty people from Houston, TX attended, most of which drove together in a caravan. After meeting [...]

Juveniles and Private Prisons, The Worst Of Both Worlds: A Hutto Story

One of the loudest arguments against imprisoning immigrant children in Hutto is simply that they are children and that they have done nothing wrong. Remember that the mix of children and prisons do not have a good mix in Texas. In 2007 a juvenile prison scandal broke and it was reported that there were over [...]

I was also honored to give the caravan a bump on the Nuestra Palabra Radio Show and the Proyecto Latino-Americano show. To hear the [...]
