Employee Background Check Violations - Immigrant Youth Detention Centers, Texas

Last edited Thu Jun 14, 2018, 12:09 AM - Edit history (2)

Southwest Key, the non-profit, Walmart warehouser of immigrant children ripped from the arms of their parents failed to properly process background checks for caretakers....repeatedly.

Click this link, hit X to close little box, and scroll down to read repeated violation for Southwest Key Combes facility as an example:
http://www.dfps.state.tx.us/Child_Care/Search_Texas_Child_Care/CCLNET/Source/Provider/ppComplianceHistory.aspx?fid=327948&wgt=5&tab=2


Texas has all the dirt on all the Southwest Key youth immigration detention centers online. You can read them for yourselves. The Texas site is pretty easy to use. The link takes you to the Southwest Key Texas facilities.

Click on the link below to see all of Southwest Key facilities violations and share this with people you know. I don't think most understand how bad this is.

http://www.dfps.state.tx.us/child_care/search_texas_child_care/ppFacilitySearchResults.asp?res_Care_Flag=T&txt_Operation_Name=&txt_Street_Address=&txt_Location_City=&slt_County=&txt_Zip_Code=&slt_Operation_Type=&slt_Issuance_Type=&btn_facDCSearch=Search&apfs=&gender_served=&slt_Programs_Provided=&chk_Emotional_Disorders=&chk_Mental_Retardation=&chk_Pervasive_Develpmental_Disorder=&chk_Primary_Needs=&chk_Therapeutic_Camp=&chk_Transitional_Living=&chk_Emergency_Care=&chk_Assessment_Services=&pagenum=26

The violations are visible at the bottom of each centers opening page. You will see the list with actual numbers of HIGH, MED/HIGH, MEDIUM, etc. violations. (numbers and words are in blue)

Click on the words HIGH, MED/HIGH, etc. to read the violations.

I focused on Cameron County because that is where the now famous, empty Walmart Casa Padre center is located. There are several other Southwest Key youth facilities in Cameron County, Texas.

Note that Southwest laid off 1,000 workers last year!

Did they move kids to make room for the new zero tolerance policy influx?

The violations include

failing to comply with backgrounds checks
filthy bathrooms
unlocked medication cabinets
unsupervised children
lots of incomplete/inadequate record keeping & reporting to parents
failure to medicate
unknown weapons...

The list is long.


The violations listings are for the years 2015 - Present.

Where are the freaking journalists? This is a classic journalism assignment. Facts, figures, empirical all online.

The violations are there, listed for each facility.

SHOUT THEM FROM THE ROOFTOPS.

These kids are endangered.

The top 3 Southwest Key officers have greatly increased their salaries from 2015-Present, as well. Lots of $$$ in non-profits.

The CEO earns over $740,000 a year.

6. I accidently tripped onto the Texas DFPS website.

I dug because the site made it so easy.

This retired citizen journalist was appalled with the lite-version being presented today after reading these reports.

The 1,000 employee layoff in Cameron County last year is a story by itself, imo, and forced my conscience to write.

These violations only cover 2015-present.

People are strung out from worry about their offspring. Many here are older people.
