Immigration Clinic Collaborates with Grassroots Leadership to Publish Report Documenting Problems at Immigration Detention Center

In March 2020, the Texas Law Immigration Clinic published with Grassroots Leadership a report entitled “Cruelty and Corruption:  Contracting to Lock up Immigrant Women for Profit at the Hutto Detention Center.”  The Hutto detention center, located in Taylor, Texas, holds women seeking asylum in the United States.  For years, the Texas Law Immigration Clinic has provided representation and legal information to women detained at the facility and has also engaged in advocacy and litigation to address problems at the detention center.  The report with Grassroots Leadership details the history of legally questionable contracts and gaps in accountability that have allowed Hutto to remain open despite years of abuses at the facility.
