ACLU settlement

The ACLU has been involved in litigation to improve the conditions inside TDH for several months. They recently reached a settlement with officials which will ameliorate the conditions inside, though it still remains an inappropriate environment for children, and a questionable choice for family detention at all levels.

For more information, please consult the ACLU's statement on the settlement, Texas Prison Bid'ness, the Women's Commission press release, or Houston Chronicle's news briefing.
