‘Like an Experimental Concentration Camp’: Whistleblower Complaint Alleges Mass Hysterectomies at ICE Detention Center

JERRY LAMBE

Law and Crime

9/14/20

EXCERPT:

Several legal advocacy groups on Monday filed a whistleblower complaint on behalf of a nurse at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center documenting “jarring medical neglect” within the facility, including a refusal to test detainees for the novel coronavirus and an exorbitant rate of hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women.

The nurse, Dawn Wooten, was employed at the Irwin County Detention Center (ICDC) in Georgia, which is operated by LaSalle Corrections, a private prison company. The complaint was filed with the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) by advocacy groups Project South, Georgia Detention Watch, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, and South Georgia Immigrant Support Network.

Multiple women came forward to tell Project South about what they perceived to be the inordinate rate at which women in ICDC were subjected to hysterectomies – a surgical operation in which all or part of the uterus is removed. Additionally, many of the immigrant women who underwent the procedure were reportedly “confused” when asked to explain why they had the surgery, with one detainee likening their treatment to prisoners in concentration camps.

“Recently, a detained immigrant told Project South that she talked to five different women detained at ICDC between October and December 2019 who had a hysterectomy done,” the complaint stated. “When she talked to them about the surgery, the women ‘reacted confused when explaining why they had one done.’ The woman told Project South that it was as though the women were ‘trying to tell themselves it’s going to be OK.’”

What's next? Mass beheading? We running them through gas chambers, burning the bodies and then releasing them out the other end? Sorry these specious claims are ridiculous.

It's easier to print whatever is told to you or to make something up rather than be an actual journalist in these most trying of times.  This is the new normal, so wear a mask, isolate, social distance, and believe what we tell you.

Don't forget kids being stuck in Dog Kennels.  Calling total B.S.  the idea that ANY SURGERY much less non emergency would be performed at a detention center is beyond ludicrous.  But hey, since Orange man bad, Orange man is the anti Christ Orange man hates 'immigrants', Orange man is racist, Orange man is Hitler... people will believe this.

All they need is a source any source, even an anonymous one.  Funny how in a court of law anonymous unknown to everyone except the prosecutor wouldn't wash and would get the case thrown out, BUT, to the media and those who hate Trump or Conservatives it's undeniable proof.

Come know, actual investigation and fact finding requires critical thinking and proof.  Don't you know that takes to long and hurts the brain muscle?

Were they hysterectomies or abortions?

That distinction alone makes leftist heads spin.

They view both as a removal of an organ they claim is the woman’s body, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it were abortions.

The distinction is informed consent.

 

As for this story, it could be one rogue, crusading doctor and not some giant conspiracy.

And it could be one rogue, crusading nurse (who provided the information, and she has been there part-time) with either conspiratorial funding or just personal zealotry. 

Come to think of it, it’s most likely complete bull crap and is just a political hit job. 

Done. Next!

Detention centers are equipped for surgery? Not likely.

From what I'm seeing on local Atlanta news, sounds like POSSIBLY a little of both:

(1) doctor with apparently an unusually high number of hysterectomies. And not a "staff" doctor but an outside consultant.  MAYBE there's a 'there' there... OR maybe he's a specialist that only gets called on the situations for which a hysterectomy would tend to be a solution.  Nobody is naming the doctor yet.

(1) nurse with an axe to grind, claiming her demotion from full-time to part-time in July was 'retaliation' for questioning the facility's handling of COVID-19.

"not likely"??

It's a fact that this doctor conducted proceedures in question.

And it's not just this Nurse:

four lawyers representing clients there are claiming that immigrant women are routinely being sent to a gynecologist who has left them bruised and performed unnecessary procedures, including hysterectomies.

From link above:

The doctor, who three lawyers identified as Dr. Mahendra Amin, practicing in Douglas, Georgia, has continued to see women from the Irwin County Detention Center for the past several years despite complaints from his patients.

Amin was the subject of a Justice Department investigation in 2015 for making false claims to Medicaid and Medicare. As a result, he and other doctors involved paid $525,000 in a civil settlement, according to the Justice Department.

Like I said, the detention center is not equipped for surgery. The doctor in question is located off site and is a private contractor.

He was contracted to see detainees for OB/GYN issues and conducted proceedures in question, where exactly procedures took place has nothing to do with anything.

Wrong. The detention center is not liable for the medical decisions and/or fraud made by the off-site private contractor.

When you say "wrong" you probably should follow it up with something that contradicts what you quoted.

Aside from what legal exposure there is for the dentension center, they ABSOLUTELY have responsiblity to follow up on complaints that were raised by the inmates about this doctor for years.
