At least four Central American immigrant children reported being sexually abused by staff members at the privately run Homestead detention center for unaccompanied minors, the Miami Herald reports.
No one went to prison for these alleged crimes. No one was prosecuted. No victim, apparently, was given the opportunity to speak to an experienced investigator from Miami-Dade Police’s sexual-crimes team.
The claims made by these children were handled within the confines of secrecy that the federal government set for the facility’s private contractor, Caliburn, as if U.S. and Florida state law didn’t exist for these children.
