Los Angeles, July 31 (RHC)-- In the U.S. city of Los Angeles, federal judge Dolly Gee has mandated the appointment of an independent monitor to force the Trump administration to improve health and safety standards in immigrant detention centers that house children. 

The court order comes after lawyers provided testimony from migrants who said they have been subjected to widespread abuse inside detention, including being kicked in their sleep, forced to drink toilet water, provided only spoiled food and denied medical treatment.  The lawyers also said detained children have been injected with psychotropic drugs without parental consent.
