Vigil at the Jack Harwell Detention Center #TUFF

On December 10th at 2 PM, Texans United For Families (TUFF) and Grassroots Leadership will be hosting a vigil at the Jack Harwell Detention Center.

The Jack Harwell facility had been sitting vacant outside of Waco until it was recently bought by a company who turned it into a detention center for women immigrants.

This vigil will serve to draw attention to the privatization of detention centers, that includes the Jack Harwell Detention Center and the horrendous treatment of the immigrant detainees inside the center.
Because there are no lawyers going in or out of the detention center, conditions can remain as they are and the detainees will remain in these inhume conditions.

Come join to demand humane treatment for the immigrant detainees living in Waco. Basic demands like access to good food, sanitary living conditions, medical attention, legal rights and fresh air. Click here for the Facebook event

UPDATE: Dec 6th we learned that ICE stopped detaining women at Jack Harwell over the weekend! We take this as a victory, but we will continue with our vigil in Waco on Saturday in solidarity with the more than 10,000 people in detention centers throughout Texas.

NO MORE PRISONS & DEPORTATIONS! Free All Immigrants in Detention! Legalization NOW!
