ICE Deported a Woman Who Accused Guards of Sexual Assault While the Feds Were Still Investigating the Incident

Correction, Oct. 23, 2020: Due to incorrect information provided to ProPublica by an FBI spokesperson in September, this story wrongly stated that the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General is the lead agency investigating allegations of sexual assault at an El Paso immigrant detention center run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. A month after the story was published, the spokesperson, Jeanette Harper, wrote in an emailed statement that she had “inadvertently received and provided inaccurate information.” The DOJ Inspector General has consistently declined to comment. Harper said the lead agency was the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees ICE. Its inspector general and the FBI have interviewed women making the allegations, according to their lawyer, Linda Corchado. A spokesperson for the DHS Inspector General, which previously had not responded to inquiries, wrote Friday in email that per its policy the agency could not confirm or deny investigations.
