2,800 U.S. Inmates In TX Moving After Revolt Makes Prison “Uninhabitable”


As many as 2,800 federal prisoners will be moved to other institutions after inmates seized control of part of a prison in South Texas, causing damage that made the facility “uninhabitable,” the Associated Press reports. Ed Ross, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, said the inmates who had taken control are “now compliant” but that negotiations were ongoing in an effort for staff to “regain complete control” of Willacy County Correctional Center.
