Court Appointed Investigator Denied Access To Southwest Key

Local News

A special appointed investigator has been denied access to Southwest Key Casa Padre in Brownsville

This came after a Cameron County Court ordered the probe last week. 

The investigator was to see if some of the immigrant children held at the facility needed special guardians. Cameron County Court at law Judge Sheila Garcia Bence signed the order to start the investigation last week. 

It would allow several guardians to interview children at the facility. Casa Padre has not complied with the order. The department of justice lawyer sent the matter to Federal Court since no one has replied to the order.

We reached out to Southwest Key for comment, but no one has returned our phone calls.
