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

Rate this Entry
The Center for American Progress has released a report entitled: Dignity Denied, LGBT Immigrants in U.S. Immigration Detention that reveals that LGBT immigrants in immigration detention facilities face an increased risk of abuse.

From the introduction:

The U.N. Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment went as far as finding the treatment of LGBT
immigrants in U.S. detention facilities in violation of the Convention Against Torture after it received information on gay and transgender individuals who had been subjected to solitary confinement, torture, and ill-treatment—including sexual assault—while detained in U.S. immigration facilities.

The report details incidents of sexual assault, denial of adequate medical care, long-term solitary confinement, discrimination and abuse, and ineffective
complaints and appeals processes.
