The fact that Democrats have been demanding this for illegals shows how warped their priorities are.
Via Washington Times:
Health and Human Services released long overdue guidelines Friday ordering facilities that house illegal immigrant children to set up sexual abuse prevention programs, and to be prepared to deal with tricky cases such as transgender or intersex children.
The rules, which congressional Democrats had demanded earlier this week, govern everything from pat-downs to evaluating each child for their likely risk of being targeted for sexual abuse or harassment, and govern how the children should be housed while at the private facilities, which operate under a government contract.
HHS said the facilities must be prepared to investigate abuse allegations, must put all employees who come in contact with children through thorough background checks, and need to take special care in cases where children have “any gender nonconforming appearance or manner or identification as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning or intersex.”
In the case of transgender children, the guidelines instruct the facilities to ask the children which sex they identify as, and to take that into consideration when deciding whom to house them with.
That had been a particular request of the Democratic lawmaker.
