Watchdog Groups: Monterrosa and Rights Investigation
watchdog groups: According to advocacy group Grassroots Leadership, Monterrosa said a guard repeatedly touched her breasts and legs without consent, according to Metro News. The group says U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and facility operator Core Civic didn't respond to her complaints. The bureau said Tuesday that it opened a civil rights investigation regarding the case of Laura Monterrosa, a detainee at the T. Don Hutto Residential Center. The Associated Press doesn't usually identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Monterrosa has come forward publicly to encourage others to follow suit. One group in April said it documented 27 separate complaints. Watchdog groups say the U.S. government isn't doing enough to protect detained immigrants from sexual abuse. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
