Children Confined - Immigrant Detention at Hutto

Thursday, March 29, 2007

This new Freedom Files video short provides a shocking glimpse into conditions at a Texas facility to detain immigrants run by the Department of Homeland Security. Of the approximately 400 detainees at the Hutto Detention Facility, many are children who belong to refugee families seeking political asylum in the U.S. after escaping persecution in their country of origin.

To find out more about The Freedom Files, the ACLU's lawsuits against federal officials on the conditions at Hutto, and the children detained there, go to http://aclu.tv/hutto.
