Memorandum Regarding Care of Transgender Immigrant Detainees

Rate this Entry
A June 19, 2015, memorandum providing guidance regarding the care of transgender immigrant detainees has been released.

Here is the propaganda:

“The Transgender Care Memorandum reaffirms ICE’s commitment to provide a safe, secure, and respectful environment for all those in our custody, including those individuals who identify as transgender,” said ICE ERO Executive Assistant Director Thomas Homan. “We want to make sure our employees have the tools and resources available to learn more about how to interact with transgender individuals and ensure effective standards exist to house and care for them throughout the custody cycle.”

The memorandum includes the following:

  • Data Systems: appropriate data systems will be updated to record an individual’s gender identity, assisting the agency in data collection and informed decision-making.
  • Identification and Processing: comprehensive officer training and tools will be provided to ensure an individual’s gender identity can be identified early in the custodial life cycle to ensure care in accordance with the new guidance.
  • Housing Placements: the memorandum includes a voluntary ICE detention facility Contract Modification that calls for the formation of a facility-based multidisciplinary Transgender Care Classification Committee that will be responsible for making decisions related to searches, clothing options, housing assignments, medical care, and housing reassessments for transgender individuals.

It should be noted that the transgender and undocumented protester spoke out of turn on June 24, 2015, five days after the memorandum was allegedly signed by Executive Associate Director Thomas Homan. Wouldn't it have been a better choice for the President to have announced the signing of the memorandum that addressed her concerns, rather than attacking her shamelessly?

And Mr. President, that's the taxpayers' booze you've been drinking at the "People's House" while the rest of your supporters drink the cool aide.
