    But it all adds up, it is the principle. This is so unnecessary.

    I agree medical services in detention should be restricted to those truly medically necessary. (Even that causes thorny issues; I read about one man who couldn't afford cancer surgery so he robbed a bank so he could get treated in prison.)

    And you wonder why fiscal conservatives are angry! Using our hard earned tax monies for this!

    An official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement testified Friday during a discussion on immigration detention facilities, hosted by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, that transgender individuals are guaranteed “a right to hormone therapy.”

    “With respect to treatment while in detention--the medical care standard--the standards guarantees a right to hormone therapy for individuals who need it for treatment, and even in facilities that are not covered by that standard. Our ICE House Service Corps is very vigilant on that issue to ensuring that individuals receive necessary hormone therapy,” said Kevin Landy, assistant director of the ICE office of detention policy and planning.
