Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in response to U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee ordering the relocation of children currently located at Shiloh Residential Treatment Center: 

“Given the long history of allegations of mistreatment of children located at Shiloh, the pending lawsuit and the Center’s refusal to be open and transparent; I fully support Judge Gee’s decision. I previously requested Shiloh to be shutdown given the disturbing allegations of mistreatment and the pending lawsuit. While Shiloh has not been fully closed, these outstanding allegations make the decision to move children the right one.”
