Hundreds Released from Texas Immigration Detention Facility Over Weekend

December 7, 2016

ICEA legal aid group representing immigrant families at two controversial detention centers in Karnes City and Dilley said the federal government released 460 women and children, about 25 percent of those being held, over the weekend.

Some of the families had been in detention only a short time and have not yet had their credible fear interviews, the first step in the asylum process, the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services said in an announcement about the releases.

The Interfaith Welcome Coalition, a group that provides services to families after their release, operates shelters in two houses south of downtown, but a nearby church and convent opened their doors after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement dropped off more than 200 people Saturday, said Amy Fischer, RAICES’s policy director.

“We had people being dropped off after midnight last night, and we expect it to continue today,” Fischer said.

Immigration officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday morning.

    These Christian and Catholic organizations need to be closed down making money hand over hoof bringing these people in then sheltering them. Don’t know what kind of faith they are practicing but the Bible clearly states there is a time for this and that and it is time they stopped helping put America in danger.

    Because of the Catholic and other interventions by Christian organizations with this refugee open door Trojan Horse policy they get nothing from me anymore. Take it to the bank Hell will freeze over before I give any Christian or Catholic organization a penny.

    This madness has to stop and soon. Thank the Almighty for Trump and yes our immigration laws are strict and we have many other laws on the books that will allow Trump to end this ticking time bomb.

    Since I am agnostic and do not contribute to any church or religious entity, I cannot say much about it but if I were, I would stop giving to the church that harbors ILLEGAL INVADERS AKA criminals (those here for second or more times)
