Hillcroft Physicians Clinic is a Southwest Houston medical facility that serves immigrant and refugee patients. Despite being one of the first approved for the Covid-19 vaccine in the state by Health and Human Services, Hillcroft Physicians was still waiting for the vaccine while neighboring clincs and hospitals in wealthier areas of town already had it. Physicians called Media Masters to bring media attention to the plight of their patients. All major media English-speaking and Spanish-speaking outlets covered the story and the coverage resulted in the vaccine being delivered to the clinic.
Recently in the middle of the Covid-19 lockdown, a woman filed a lawsuit against CoreCivic, a company who owns a private detension facility for illegal immigrants in Houston. In the lawsuit, she claimed she was beaten and raped by guards the last night before she was deported to Mexico. The resulting coverage in English and Spanish media encouraged other women who have been similarly victimized to come forward with thier own stories of abuse at the facility.
Luke Denman and Airan Berry, both former U.S. special forces soldiers who served in Iraq, were detained in Venezuela by authorities following what was described as a botched beach landing in the fishing village of Chuao.
