Immigrant Detainees Launch Hunger Strike at Texas Immigration Jail

Rate this Entry

What is it going to take for President Obama to clean up his administration's oversight of the immigration detention system.  How many immigrants need to die?

His silence on the issue speaks volumes.

"In Texas, dozens of prisoners have gone on a hunger strike at a
Los Fresnos immigration jail in protest of inhumane conditions. Its at
least the third hunger strike at the Port Isabel Detention Center in
less than a year. On Tuesday, independent journalist Renee Feltz spoke
to immigrant-rights activist Anayanse Garza of the Southwest Workers
Union. Garza recounted an interaction with Immigration and Customs
Enforcements Acting Director of the Office of Detention Policy and
Planning, Phyllis Coven." -Democracy Now
