Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Texas Court Temporarily Blocks Licensing of Deportation Baby Jail

Rate this Entry
Via Grassroots Leadership:

In a major victory for advocates, an Austin judge has issued a temporary injunction prohibiting the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) from issuing a child care license under lowered standards to the nation’s largest immigration detention center - the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.


The ruling by Judge Karin Crump of the 250th District Court prohibits the agency from issuing a license to the prison, operated by private prison corporation Corrections Corporation of America, until a September hearing to determine whether the agency has the authority to license the Dilley facility and a separate facility in Karnes County, Texas operated by private prison corporation GEO Group. Both facilities detained mothers and their children for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

A hearing is scheduled this September for the Court to determine whether DFPS is legally authorized to issue a license to facilities that jail children utilizing lowered standards of protection.
