Family Immigration Detention Texas

Family Immigration Detention Texas

FILE - In this Sept. 10, 2014, file photo, detained immigrant children line up in the cafeteria at the Karnes County Residential Center, a temporary home for immigrant women and children detained at the border, in Karnes City, Texas. As the private prison industry profits from an immigrant detention boom around the country, GEO Group, one of its top corporations is struggling to convince Texas lawmakers to shield its lucrative family detention facility from closure. An outside political organization working on behalf of the GEO, lobbied a state representative to introduce a bill enabling Texas to license family immigrant detention centers as childcare providers. The legislation would potentially help GEO's Karnes Residential Center and Texas' other family facility comply with federal requirements for housing children. (AP Photo/Eric Gay, File)
