Pecos, Texas - Rioting inmates "heavily damaged" at least one building in a two-day riot, the second such unrest at the Reeves County Detention Center in as many months. The Reeves County Detention Center is run by the Geo Group and houses federal inmates who are being held on immigration charges. Smoke was seen pouring from the prison on Saturday night. "We do not have anything in control," one guard told KVIA-TV, El Paso, Texas. "Everything is out of control."
