Father's Day Vigil at Polk County Immigrant Detention Center

Grassroots Leadership, Texans United for Families, Liberating Immigrant Families Together, la TUYA, Living Hope Wheelchair Association, Houstons United for the Prevention of Border Deaths and allies led a second vigil and protest outside of the IAH Polk Secure Adult Detention Center calling for its immediate closure. After conducting a visit during the summer of 2012 and speaking with numerous men detained at the facility, members of TUFF, Grassroots Leadership & allies identified the Polk County Detention Center as one of the top ten worst immigrant prisons in the U.S., guilty of committing acute and chronic human rights violations.

Our first vigil outside of Polk was held on December 8, 2012 and we returned to continue pushing for its closure.  Many of the men at Polk are fathers who want nothing more than to be reunited with their families and hold their children again. Join us in showing of solidarity with the men detained at the Polk County Detention Center and help us call for their release!
