ACLU v ICE – This About Sums It Up

Posted in Commentary, Criminal Justice, T. Don Hutto, Williamson County at 1:42 pm by wcnews

Via WFAA.com, Fears Hutto deal will keep center running.

[..attorney and Dallas businessman Ralph Isenberg] has played a role in the release of at least three detainee families.

He says the settlement is not necessarily good news.

“Because had this thing gone to court I believe the judge would have shut this facility down because the fact still remains, you don’t put children in prison.”

Immigration officials downplay the significance of the the settlement saying many of the modifications have already been implemented.

But one thing everyone agrees on is that the Hutto is a far more humane facility than it was just a few months ago.

The settlement leaves EOW with the feeling that ICE and nobody on the Feds side in this case wanted a trial or to testify under oath. Some truly nasty stuff would have come out and then, rightfully so, this facility would have been closed.
