San Antonio and National News – January 16, 2019

A private company runs the jail in the 200 block of Laredo Street for the federal government.
A sign in front may say GEO Group but that’s not who owns the building.
The county does.
The county says the arrangement no longer makes financial sense. This is why County Commissioners passed a resolution Tuesday to start the process of ending that
contract with GEO.
The county has been working to ensure that the University of Texas in San Antonio has the
room to expand in the downtown area. That deal was made when the county jail had more room but now Salazar said they are maxed out at an average of 4200 inmates.
The federal government said it is working to find placement for the detainees. It is still unclear
when the contract between the county and GEO expires but the county says it has time to figure
it all out.

The Democratic National Committee will not sponsor the Women’s March amid anti-Semitic
“The DNC stands in solidarity with all those fighting for women’s rights and holding the Trump
administration and Republican lawmakers across the country accountable.
Women are on the front lines of fighting back against this administration and are the core of our
Democratic Party,” DNC Deputy Communications Director Sabrina Singh told Fox News,
making clear the organization still supports the cause of women’s rights even as it keeps
distance from the group itself.
