Undocubus Visits Austin: Undocumented and Unafraid

The Undocubus visited Austin on August 3rd as part of their cross-country tour exposing the unjust immigration policies of the United States. The undocumented immigrants of the bus left Phoeniz where they have been part of the campaign to remove Sheriff Joe Arpaio from power.

Allies and supporters in Austin held a rally in solidarity with the Undocubus at our Sheriff Greg Hamilton's office. Sheriff Hamilton, like Sheriff Arpaio, uses the "Secure Communities" program in his jail which collaborates with ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) to send suspected undocumented immigrants to immigration prison and deportation. The demonstrators called on Sheriff Hamilton to end "Secure Communities" in Travis County.

The following day, members of the Undocubus held a teach-in with Texans United For Families and the Hutto Visitation Program on Breaking the Isolation of Immigrant Detention.

Reposted from Todo Austin

  On March 13, 2012, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) unveiled its new “civil” detention center in Karnes County, Texas, located one hour southeast of San Antonio. By the end of the month the facility will hold male migrants who are either asylum-seekers or have been categorized as “low-risk.” Karnes County contracted with private prison giant the GEO Group to build this detention center, which sits upon 29 acres of land and has 608 beds, with the possibility to expand to 1200 beds. The detention center is heralded by ICE as a model facility that is demonstrative of its efforts to move towards “humane detention.” Despite its shiny exterior and the presence of volleyball courts and soccer fields, the GEO group’s troubled history and record of human rights violations within its facilities are cause for alarm. The promise of “humane detention” itself is an oxymoron that community members should challenge. A gilded cage is still a cage.
