In accordance with the new era of touchy-feely government enforced diversity, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) is opening a special unit for transgender “women” deep in the heart of Texas. The agency – which resides under the giant umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security – has announced that the special facility – located in the sleepy burb of Alvarado – will open for business later this year. It’s another sign of just how accommodating that the Obama regime has been to what is a minuscule and in this case illegal portion of the population.
The website Fusion reports on the facility in the article “Immigration officials to start sending transgender women to the middle of Texas”:
U.S. immigration officials are opening a new detention facility in Texas that will include a unit specifically created for transgender individuals, Fusion has confirmed.
“The facility is expected to house about 700 detainees, including a separate 36-bed unit for transgender individuals,” said Carl Rusnok, a spokesperson for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE.)
ICE says the Prairieland Detention Center will open in November in Alvarado, Texas, and will operate with the agency’s most advanced care guidelines for transgender detainees. Each detainee will have an individualized detention plan “covering items such as searches, clothing options, hygiene practices, medical care, and housing assignments,” Rusnok said.
Immigrant rights advocates have urged ICE to release LGBT detainees, especially transgender women, because they are more vulnerable to physical and sexual assaults while in custody. The new facility addresses a number of issues to better protect trans women, but immigrant rights leaders say any new detention center is a step in the wrong direction. The advocates want ICE to instead work more closely with community groups that could house trans women.
“[ICE] is talking about the new detention center as if they are providing as a service to the community, and they’re not,” said Isa Noyola, the director of programs at the San Francisco-based Transgender Law Center.
ICE officials estimate that there are approximately 65 transgender women in their custody on any given night.
The new facility will likely be loudly trumpeted by the Democrats as they look to energize the LGBT demographic to turnout to vote this November. It’s a fitting companion to the ongoing efforts to throw open women’s restrooms across the fruited plain to fruits, freaks and fairies and hey, what are they going to do? Vote Republican?
The facility reportedly cost taxpayers in the neighborhood of $42 million dollars as well as the ongoing expense to keep it staffed and administer to the trannies is expected to create an estimated whopping one hundred new jobs in Johnson County, TX according to the Cleburne Times Review. The wetback hotel boasts over 700 total beds total including the set asides for the gender confusion afflicted illegals.
