Arriving at T Don Hutto after march from downtown Taylor

On June 20, 2009, over a hundred people traveled from the border region, the valley, the gulf coast and central Texas and met up with residents of Taylor to march on the T. Don Hutto Immigrant Family Detention Center to honor World Refugee Day. After the march from downtown Taylor, a vigil and rally was held outside the Center to demand immediate liberty for the children and families being held. Another demand was the closure of the Hutto facility, which is essentially a prison being privately run by the notorious CCA, Corrections Corporation of America.
