Advocates want #MeToo debate
to include immigrant detention
Mary Jean Kettelkamp
Nov. 24, 1931 — Dec. 12, 2017
HOUSTON — While
she waits at a detention cen-
ter in Texas to find out if she
can stay in the United States,
Laura Monterrosa fears that
she put herself in danger by
coming forward about sexual
Months after accusing a
female guard at the facility
of groping her and suggest-
ing they have sex, Monterrosa
says she still sees the guard in
the dining hall and other parts
of the facility. She recalled in
a recent interview what the
guard had said to her.
“I told her that I was going
to tell the supervisor what was
happening,” Monterrosa said
in a recent phone interview
from the facility. “She sar-
castically said, ‘Do you think
they’ll believe you or me?’”
As the national discussion
of sexual misconduct grows,
advocates for immigrants say
they hope the conversation
will include immigrant deten-
tion facilities. They point
to the FBI announcing in
December that it had opened
a civil rights investigation into
Monterrosa’s case as a posi-

think there would be an outcry

sent a complaint to the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security in April that listed 27
allegations of sexual abuse in
immigration detention over
the last three years. The com-
plaint also says that another
1,016 people reported sex-
ual abuse in detention to the
Department of Homeland
Security between May 2014
and July 2016.
Fialho said many more
cases go uncounted because
victims are afraid to come for-
ward or, when they do, their
cases aren’t fully investigated.
Based on CIVIC’s anal-
ysis of federal data released
through a Freedom of Infor-
mation Act request, DHS
investigated less than 3 per-
cent of the sexual abuse com-
plaints it received during that
same time period.
Like many of the roughly
35,000 adults in immigration
detention, Monterrosa, 23, has
requested asylum. She arrived
at the southern U.S. border in
May after fleeing El Salvador,
where she says she was forced
into prostitution by her fam-
ily and that an uncle raped her.
The uncle was a policeman,
If her asylum claim is
denied, she could be deported.
She is currently appealing a
denial of her claim in October.
The Associated Press typi-
cally does not name victims in
sexual assault investigations,
but Monterrosa has come
forward to encourage other
women to report their stories.
