Allegations of Hunger Strike at Taylor Detention Facility

TAYLOR, Texas — An Austin-based immigrant rights organization claims detainees at a facility in Taylor are on a hunger strike to protest unfair treatment.

About a dozen members of Texans United for Families (TUFF) met Friday afternoon at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center to ask for the release of detainee Insis Bernardez. The center is a privately owned facility used to house women in U.S, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody.
