Sara and Nayely Beltran just walked out of the Karnes County family detention center moments ago. They were greeted by their attorney, Kate Lincoln-Goldfinch, and are now on their way to a warm and welcoming community in Austin. Making this news even more joyous is that Nayely has a doctor’s appointment to begin treatment of her brain tumor at Dell Children’s Hospital on Tuesday.

Why was Neyely in detention in the first place?

The Karnes family detention center is where ICE is holding more than 500 women and children from Central America. The reports from inside are not good. Karnes is also run by a private prison company, the GEO Group, which has a long rap sheet of abuse and neglect. GEO makes $160 every day for every woman and child they detain.
