No Refuge Here: A First Look at Sexual Abuse in Immigration Detention

General Material
Published Date
January, 2004
Publisher(s)

"This report calls attention to the problem of sexual abuse in immigration detention centers in the United States, focusing on three central issues: (1) the considerable and troubling reported record of sexual abuse of detainees, (2) the lack of substantive policies and procedures in place to address such abuse, and (3) immigration officials' refusal to allow independent monitoring of conditions for detainees.& Through this report, Stop Prisoner Rape calls on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to implement more detailed and comprehensive standards for the prevention and treatment of sexual assault in facitlities that hold immigration detainees."
