Family detention centers run by the country’s two largest for-profit prison operators are set to become some of Texas’s biggest child-care providers, following a recent state appeals court decision. Under the ruling, the centers—which have been accused of enabling sexual abuse and allowing children to die in their care—will receive the same type of licenses granted to the state’s daycares, potentially enabling them to detain children indefinitely.

U.S. Quietly Lifts Limit on Number of Refugees Allowed In

Despite repeated efforts by President Trump to curtail refugee resettlements,  the State Department this week quietly lifted the department’s restriction on the number of refugees allowed to enter the United States.
