Illegals Destroy Texas Prison: Facility is now “Uninhabitable”

0

After complaining over the healthcare that they were receiving courtesy of the State of Texas, the Willacy County Correctional Center in Raymondville, TX is now, “uninhabitable due to damage caused by the inmate population,” says US Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross in a statement.

Over 2,800 inmates will need to be relocated to other corrections facilities after ‘several hundred prisoners’ seized control of a federal facility in South Texas. Willacy County Sheriff Larry Spence on Saturday declined to discuss the main points of the negotiations but said there are no hostages involved and only minor injuries reported.

Management & Training Corp., the private contractor that operates the center for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, said about 2,000 inmates became disruptive Friday and refused to perform work duties.

MTC spokesman Issa Arnita said in a statement that prisons officials have begun moving the inmates and that the process would continue into next week.

Arnita said prison administrators met with inmates Friday to address their concerns but that the prisoners “breached” their housing units and reached the recreation yard. The Valley Morning Star reports fires were set inside three of the prison’s 10 housing units.

It should come as no surprise to readers that these inmates refused to recognize authority as many of them have, of course, crossed the US border illegally, an issue that the Obama administration has refused to recognize or address adequately.

In fact, new Texas Governor Greg Abbott said yesterday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer, that since January 1, 2015, over 20,000 illegals have crossed the US-Texas border illegally.
