Transgender immigration detainee, Marichuy Leal Gamino, moved to solitary confinement after reporting rape
Advocates are deeply concerned about transgender immigration detainee, Marichuy Leal Gamino, who, according to The Advocate, not only was incarcerated in a men's prison at Arizona's Eloy Detention Center even though she identifies as a woman, but was also sent to solitary confinement after reporting that her male roommate raped her.
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.
