ACLU Applauds Closing Of Kewanee Youth Center

(Kewanee, IL) — Advocates for inmates are happy to see Illinois closing the youth center in Kewanee. Governor Rauner ordered the center closed late last week. The ACLU says the decision is the right thing to do for young people, and they want to see Illinois move beyond jail for more underage offenders. The union representing workers at the center says they were blind-sided by the announcement.
