Advocates pushing for sexual misconduct to include immigrant detention

January 8, 2018

Grassroots Leadership continues to advocate for accountability for abuses of power in detention, including sexual assault. "Advocates say the national discussion of sexual misconduct should include immigrant detention facilities where they say cases of abuse have not been adequately investigated.

Advocates point to the FBI announcing that it had opened a civil rights investigation into a Texas case as a positive sign that federal authorities are responding to pressure."
