Congressmen Call On ICE To Investigate Sex Abuse In Its Detention Facilities

February 26, 2018

"More than 45 congressmen have signed a letter calling for an investigation into how ICE handles sexual assault reports in its detention centers.

The letter references the case of Laura Monterrosa, a detainee at the T. Don Hutto Center in Central Texas who claims she was sexually assaulted by a female guard.

The immigrant advocacy group Grassroots Leadership is also accusing detention center employees of pressuring Monterrosa to recant her claims."
