Customs Announces Transgender Protections For Immigration Detention

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has released new health and safety standards for transgender detainees in immigration detention. They ensure that individuals are placed in facilities by the gender with which they identify and that they have access to hormone therapy and other necessary medical care. The National Center for Transgender Equality points out that more can be done, and it’s unclear when the new standards will take effect.
