Williamson County ends relationship with Taylor detention center

June 25, 2018

The relationship between Williamson County and a detention center has ended.

The Williamson County Commissioners Court voted Tuesday to terminate the county's contracts with ICE and CoreCivic, the company that operates the T. Don Hutto Residential Center in Taylor. The commissioner's court voted 4-1 in the termination of contracts.

Immigration advocates from groups like Grassroots Leadership have been calling for the center's closure.
