- Legislation introduced this week by congressional Democrats would forbid border officials from detaining illegal immigrants who identify as LGBT in almost all circumstances.
- The Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, sponsored by dozens of Democrats including Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.) and Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), would set a norm that “vulnerable” migrants “may not be detained,” Fox News reported. Vulnerable groups, according to the bill, include migrants who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex,” don’t speak English, or have experienced “severe trauma.”
- “This is a measure that will go a long way to restore humanity and dignity to the immigration system.” Jayapal said of the legislation.
