Advocates hope Biden closes T. Don Hutto center


An immigrant advocacy group, Grassroots Leadership, has been trying for at least 10 years to get the federal government to close the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor, where immigrant women seeking asylum are detained.

The group wants it closed, claiming there are inhumane conditions there including sexual abuse of detainees, inadequate food and medical care, and forced labor. Immigration Customs and Enforcement officials have long said that detention ensures the immigrants show up for hearings and that it has an aggressive inspection program to make sure detainees are safe in a humane environment.

A spokeswoman for Grassroots Leadership, as well as a University of Texas immigration expert, said that with President Joe Biden in office, they have new hope the center in Taylor might be closed.
