A 10-year-old Guatemalan separated from his father while awaiting deportation was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted in US custody, according to a lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed by the boy’s father who was also deported, claims that the kid was forced to take psychotropic drugs and was sexually abused by a fellow detained child.

The alleged crimes occurred in two non-profit detention centers that are used by the US government to house illegal immigrants awaiting deportation.

In total, the US government uses over 100 migrant detention centers across 17 states to hold separated children who face deportation charges.

According to US immigration lawyers, these shelters face many lawsuits at the moment for cruel treatment of detainees and forced separation of children from their parents.

The father’s lawsuit states that the shelters “acted with fraud, malice and gross neglect”.
