An invitation from the Immigrant Youth Coalition to a rally at which Transgender Law Center staff will speak.
“On Thursday November 20th, 2014 President Obama will announce that he will use his executive authority to expand temporary protections to millions of undocumented immigrants. This executive action will have direct impact on immigrant trans women, including those being tortured by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in immigration detention facilities. This announcement comes at a time when Fusion published the powerful first part of a 6 month investigation into abuse of transgender women in immigration detention. It is time to ask the tough questions of “Why did they U.S. lock up these women with men?” and demand real action such as the release of ALL LGBTQ detainees and an end to the 34,000 bed space quota mandated by Congress.
