Judge issues temporary injunction on Dilley immigration detention center

Posted on Wednesday, June 15th, 2016 at 3:34 pm    

Travis County State District Judge Karin Crump issued a temporary injunction on the Dilley-based illegal immigrant detention center, South Texas Family Residential Center, on Wednesday, June 1 to keep it from operating as a child care facility based on new rules implemented this year.

Before a detention center can operate as a child care center, it will be required to follow state laws regulating child care facilities, such as not allowing an unrelated adult and child to live in the same room. New rules implemented this year by state officials would have done away with having to follow state rules and would have exempted the center from needing to comply with other requirements as well.

A federal judge in California earlier ruled that family detention centers, which have received their licenses from state child welfare agencies, are the only ones that will be allowed to house children, meaning the 2,400-bed Dilley center might not house children if they fail to acquire a license.

Embarking on a new life in the United States can be difficult enough without the stress of having to deal with issues regarding your immigration papers.

They are always on top of documents that needs to be collected, due dates and also preparing you for anything extra non top of what is required. William and his team are very experienced in working with the local and federal USCIS office. I would highly recommend them.
