GEO, Top Donor for Three Texas Congressmen Runs Immigration Detention Centers

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

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

The GEO Group’s PAC and executives have given $32,900 to Houston Republican Rep. John Culberson’s 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 ‘toss up’ 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.

Hundreds Pack LaGuardia Airport To Support Children Torn From Families At Border

The protesters came after an advocacy group reported seeing migrant kids arriving at the New York airport.


Crowds of protesters filled a New York City airport where migrant children who had been separated from their families along the U.S.-Mexico border were reported to be arriving late Wednesday night, carrying their few belongings with them.

The emotional demonstration at LaGuardia Airport in Queens ignited shortly after workers with the immigrant advocacy group Make the Road New York reported seeing several children deplaning around 10 p.m.

Within minutes I saw a group of about four kids that were clearly being escorted out. They were all very small,” he said, estimating the children to be between the ages of 4 and 10.

Barrientos said he had seen other children getting off flights and they enthusiastically stretched their legs and released pent-up energy. These four kids behaved differently.

“They looked very scared, they looked very numb. They were all carrying little plastic bags with the few belongings that they had,” he said. “It just looked like it had maybe a piece of underwear, a T-shirt, a toothbrush ― it was that small of a bag.”

Here's the way Bethany Skirts the Laws

In six months they'll file abandonment petitions on John Doe and Jane Doe.

That's the plan. They have no intention of trying to find, much less uniting parents with their children. It's a radical Christian adoption trafficking mill.

It is reported that Bethany charges $50,000 pr child


MSM needs to get on the DeVos Bethany Christian Services migrant story ASAP before the required wait to label them "abandoned" expires.

Devos' adoption mill: Bethany Christian Services, Grand Rapids, MI, has taken in 81 immigrant children snatched from their parents under the new Trump kidnapping plan. Ask them if they have names & addresses of the parents. I bet they don't. They don't want the names & addresses.

We will travel this nation far & wide in an effort to locate missing children and reunite them with their mothers. Regardless of how or why they came, they deserved better from America.

A reminder...Trump lost, and lost badly today. This was a PR, political, legal, and moral disaster and it's unspeakably awful for him.

Also, Manafort is still in jail, Michael Cohen is ready to squeal, and the dumb spin on the IG report got overtaken by events.
