Company that runs immigration detention centers is top donor for three Texas congressmen

WASHINGTON -- One of the countryís largest operators of private immigration detention facilities has made significant contributions to several Texas members of Congress.

The GEO Groupís PAC and executives have given $32,900 to Houston Republican Rep. John Culbersonís campaign this election cycle, according to Federal Election Commission documents and OpenSecrets.org. GEO is Culberson's largest donor.

In Texas, GEO operates detention centers for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Karnes City, Laredo, Pearsall and Conroe.

Culberson is facing a tough re-election race against Democrat Lizzie Fletcher.
The race has been rated a Ďtoss upí by nonpartisan analyst Cook Political Report.

Culberson received the most funding from GEO out of Texas members of Congress, but GEO is also the top donor this cycle for U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, who received $32,400, and Round Rock Republican Rep. John Carter, who received $31,600.
Both Culberson and Cuellar serve on the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee, which funds private immigration detention centers. Culberson is also the chairman of and Carter serves on the House Appropriations subcommittee on commerce, justice and science, which oversees funding for private prisons.

I want to see the voting history of Cueller, D-Laredo.
He's got some explaining to do if he kissed the ring of this disaster.
