Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Transgender Women Abused in Immigration Detention Face Sexual Assault and Torture

    by , 03-24-2016 at 08:34 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Human Rights Watch has issued a report entitled ‘Do You See How Much I’m Suffering Here?’: Abuse against Transgender Women in US Immigration Detention.” The report documents 28 cases of transgender women held by the Obama administration in deportation jails between 2011 and 2015. More than half of the transgender women were detained in all men facilities where they were isolated in solitary confinement, allegedly for their own protection, resulting in additional trauma and psychological torture.

  2. ICE Stonewalling Release of Records Relating to Alleged Sexual Assault of Immigrants

    by , 08-21-2015 at 08:14 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Courthouse News Service reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has stonewalled the release records relating to the alleged sexual assault of refugee mothers held in private, for profit deportation internment camps located in Texas. A lawsuit was filed last week in Federal Court by the Refugee Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), of San Antonio due to a "long overdue" delay in responding to a FOIA request filed in April. RAICES is attempting to obtain a blueprint of the Karnes County Residential Detention Center laundry room, where it has been alleged that immigrant mothers were sexually assaulted by guards. There is video evidence of two guards having sexual relations with immigrant detainees in a laundry room.

    RAICES alleges that the Obama administration used "strong-arm tactics" against immigrant mothers held in custody to coerce favorable responses that would form the basis of a report that no sexual abuse occurred. RAICES also claims that the administration has a history of creating "intentionally falsified" records.
