Act of Love: Staff Trying to Restore Order at Immigrant Detention Center

AZBD Note: Remember, illegal immigration is an “Act of Love”… At least according to Jebediah Bush it is.


RAYMONDVILLE -Law enforcement agencies from throughout the Rio Grande Valley converged at the perimeter of the Willacy County immigration detention center after reports of a disturbance.

The incident started Friday morning at the MTC detention center in the outskirts of Raymondville.

Raymondville High School, Myra Green Middle School and Pittman Elementary School were placed on soft lockdown. Students were not allowed outside of the main buildings, but parents were able to pick up their children if they want to.

At approximately 1:20 p.m. smoke started billowing from between the tents at the center.
