Hutto Prison

A cell with a baby bed and children’s toys is shown at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor, Texas. The detention facility houses immigrant families awaiting deportation. Officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement describe the facility as a residential, nonsecure environment that keeps families together. However, advocacy groups say “it’s a prison” and that separation and threats of separation were used as disciplinary tools on adults and children.
