JACKSON, Miss. -- Officials say a prison for illegal immigrants in Mississippi was on lockdown after a riot that began on Sunday left one guard dead and at least 19 people injured.
All inmates were secured in their housing units by 2:45 a.m. Monday, nearly 12 hours after the disturbance began at the Adams County Correctional Center in southwest Mississippi, Mike Machak, a prison spokesman, said in a statement, according to WDSU-TV, an NBC News affiliate in New Orleans.
Officials haven't released the identity of the slain guard.
Machak said 16 other employees were treated and released from a hospital for various injuries. Three inmates were injured.

First racial instability, next spiritual discord, and now...
Please add me to the Missippi Ping. Thank You
Were paying for the upkeep and security for 2700 illegals in Natchez that have been deported once. I still think it cheaper and better to deport them again and TO SEAL OUR BORDER and not let them back in.
According to recent poll 83% of Missippians favor an illegal bill similar to Arizona’s and we had one that passed our newly elected Republican House but was killed by one democrat comittee chairman in our Republican Senate. This democrat had been appointed to the chair by our newly elected Republican Lt. Governor apparently in the spirit of getting along with democrats, Lt. Gov. Reeves, who I supported, then sent this legislation to that comittee so it would be killed. Tate Reeves stabbed me and most of those who voted for him in the back and I doubt seriously he will ever become Governor.
More of 0dumb0's sons acting up?
“”Get a rope!” “
This happened at a Federal Prison in Allen Parish in Louisiana in the late 1980’s. It housed some 1500 illegals, mostly Cubans from the Mariel boat lift that Jimmy Carter let in (figures, right?). They burned the place down, but few escaped. Seems the Klan was waiting for them in the woods and inviting them to make a run for it. There are some patriots left after all.
Hat tip to WKB, keeper of the Mississippi ping list. Duffee, feel free to cut and past per WKB’s instructions.
Prayers up for those caught up in this event too, and the family of the fallen corrections officer.
Have lived in Jackson County for 30 years, been up to Natchez a dozen times or so and never realized there was a prison there. Perhaps the exit sign is in Spanish? (I only read English and Redneck.)
Thank You, and where do I get WKB’s cut and paste instructions?
First...I love the Miss’ip ping, but miss the Missippy ping.
Both are correct, though. ;o)
I had NO idea this was going on! Thank you so much for utilizing the ping list. This is exactly why WKB has it on his home page.
“Machak said 16 other employees were treated and released from a hospital for various injuries. Three inmates were injured.
The 2,567-bed prison near Natchez houses adult male illegal immigrants, most of whom re-entered the U.S. after being deported, Emilee Beach, a prison spokeswoman, told The Associated Press. The facility is owned and operated by Nashville-based Corrections Corp. of America, WDSU-TV reported, which houses about 75,000 offenders and detainees in more than 60 facilities nationwide.
Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said the facility holds low-security inmates.
Sunday’s riot is not the first time CCA prisons have had disturbances.
In 2004, inmates at another CCA prison in Mississippi, the Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility, set fire to mattresses, clothing and a portable toilet. No injuries were reported. The company announced after that disturbance that it would add about 25 guards at the Tallahatchie County facility.
In Idaho, the high level of violence at a CCA-run prison has prompted federal lawsuits, public scrutiny and increased state oversight. In 2010, Vermont inmates being held at a CCA prison in Tennessee were subdued with chemical grenades after refusing to return to their cells.”
Look on WKB’s home page and you will find two ping lists. One is for Mississippi and the other is for Baptists.
