Dignity Denied: LGBT Immigrants in U.S. Immigration Detention

Today, the Center for American Progress released a new report examining the treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender, or LGBT, immigrants in U.S. immigration facilities. A congressional mandate requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold 34,000 immigrants each day who may be subject to removal for violations of administrative immigration law in more than 250 detention facilities nationwide, including county and private jails. LGBT immigrants in immigration detention facilities face an increased risk of abuse in detention.
