Obama Admin: Transgender Illegal Aliens Have Right to Hormone Therapy (Video)

Kevin Landy, assistant director of the ICE office of detention policy and planning, told a civil rights panel this month that transgender illegal aliens have a right to hormone therapy at their detention facilities – paid for by US taxpayers.

NewsMax reported:

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.

According to Commission Chairman Martin Castro, the Department of Homeland Security is the “largest agency that has custody of transgender individuals.”
