A family that's jailed together

Eye on Williamson County has an update on a new type of private immigration detention center that will incarcerate children along with their adult family members in Williamson County. Protesters plan to oppose the new facility, which Grits wrote about last spring, on Saturday.

UPDATE: See news 8 Austin's coverage of the protest. More from the Texas Civil Rights Review.

That is simply unconscionable. How is this signficantly different from World War II Japanese internment camps, I wonder?

Thank you Texas, for giving me one more reason to be ashamed of my state.
