Action: 4/28 People’s hearing to end the jailing of children

If you happen to be in Texas Saturday, please join advocates in freeing children from prison-

“A coalition of individuals and groups opposing the illegal and immoral detention of immigrant families with children (approximarely 400 people from more than 20 countries) at the T. Don Hutto detention center in Taylor, Texas, will gather at the Texas Capitol in committee room E2.028 on Saturday, April 28th, 11:00 a.m., for a People’s Hearing on HCR 64. This bill, filed by Reps. Eddie Rodriguez and Rafael Anchia, which condemns as immoral the incarceration of children at Hutto, has been stuck in Chairman David Swinford’s House State Affairs Committee since it was filed in February.

The people of Texas will hear testimony from citizens across many sectors of society about the abuses of the system of immigrant detention and the improper aggrandizement of private corporations such as Corrections Corporation of America which runs the immigrant prison at Hutto.

We invite all Central Texans with an interest in human rights to grab this rare opportunity to think globally and act locally all in one.
