Keep Immigration Detainees Safe - Immigration and Customs Enforcement - Department of Homeland Security

Tell the Department of Homeland Security to keep immigration detainees safe from sexual abuse!

If you could stop rape by taking three simple steps, would you do it? Right now, we need you to submit public comments to the Department of Homeland Security, urging it to issue strong standards to end the sexual abuse of immigration detainees.

Last month, the Department released its draft standards for public comment. Once finalized, these rules will help protect more than 500,000 people each year who are held in its detention facilities.

The draft standards are strong overall. But they have several flaws that must be addressed to ensure the safety of detainees.


  1. Copy the below letter to Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security.

  2. Go to the Department of Homeland Security website.

  3. Paste the letter in the comments field and click submit. (Note: You can add your name, but only the comment field is required.)
