GAO to Investigate Sexual Abuse at U.S. Immigrant Detention Facilities

Last fall, ImmigrationProf reported on the many reports of sexual abuse in immigration detention facilities. The National Journal now reports that the Government Accountability Office has agreed to launch an investigation into sexual abuse at U.S. immigration detention centers. The announcement comes as the Obama administration decides whether it will include immigrant detainees, the fastest-growing incarcerated population in the country, in pending regulations on prison rape prevention due out early this year.
