    Group protests children being held in Hutto prison.

    What about American Children and Families? Torn may times from their parents arms without evidence or "Due Process of Law" and put in group homes and foster care, and many turned out on the streets at 17 or 18? I don't see you protesting that! And you illegals and your supporters are complaining? ... rID=176596

    The treatment of immigrants brought out protestors in Taylor. Dozens gathered outside the T. Don Hutto prison Saturday.

    They say the prison houses immigrants who are awaiting asylum or deportation hearings.

    Adults and children held sign and banners calling for justice.

    Of the 400 immigrants housed there, the protestors say half are children.

    "Think about your infant, your little toddler your little child in jail. Think about the innocent child having to wake up every day in a jail cell," said Frances Valdez of the University of Texas Immigration Clinic

    The facility holds people anywhere from several weeks to several months.

    Protestors believe the incarceration of children is inhumane and that there are better alternatives for dealing with immigrants.

    "This is a travesty - this is an outrage, it's shocking. It's anti-American it's anti-freedom," said Jay Johnson-Castro, a Grassroots supporter.

    Rebecca Bernhardt from the A.C.L.U. of TEXAS says, "We also need to talk about why this is an incredible waste of taxpayer resources and that they know they have alternatives to this jail".

    Adults and children took part in the protest. They held signs and banners calling for justice.

    Never look at another flag. Remember, that behind Government, there is your country, and that you belong to her as you do belong to your own mother. Stand by her as you would stand by your own mother

    I swear, dealing with illegal immigrants and their activist is a lose-lose situation. They've been screaming their heads off regarding the separation of illegal immigrant parents from anchor babies, now they're yelling when an effort is being made to keep parents and children together prior to deportation.
