Tiq Milan talks #FreeMarichuy on MSNBC

GLAAD's Tiq Milan joined Jose Diaz Balart to speake with Ronan Farrow about immigration reform, focusing specifically on Marichuy Leal Gamino, whose sexual assault at an ICE detention facility has demonstrated the widespread abuse faced by undocumented LGBT people.

Milan told the story of Marichuy, but also showed that she is not an isolated incident. 59% of transgender detainees have reported being sexually harassed in immigration detention facilities.
