This Report Is a Terrifying Reminder of the Conditions LGBTQ Immigrants Face in ICE Custody 

LGBTQ immigrants in ICE detention facilities are 97 times more likely to experience sexual assault than other immigrants in these facilities, according to a terrifying new report from the Center for American Progress.

The report, based on information provided in a congressional letter to the Department of Homeland Security, also reveals that ICE has returned to its practice of detaining transgender women with men. This is contrary to its own guidelines, which per the Prison Rape Elimination Act require an individualized placement determination for each trans person being detained.
