U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the release of hundreds of women and children from South Texas detention centers over the past week were scheduled as part of "normal operations"—and not in response to a court ruling last Friday barring such facilities from getting childcare licenses. Jonathan Ryan is executive director of San Antonio’s Refugee and Immigrant Center For Education and Legal Services, a group that assists these asylum-seekers.

The Department of Homeland Security wants to keep using private prison contractors for immigrant detention. The Department’s advisory council made that recommendation in a draft report released Thursday.

Trump visited San Antonio Tuesday amid backlash over a leaked video where the billionaire talked about groping women. Ahead of Trump’s Grand Hyatt luncheon, local Democrats held a news conference to condemn the Republican nominee. Representative Joaquin Castro said Trump is out of step with San Antonio’s values—and dangerous for democracy.
