"From W. P Rx in collaboration with WGBH Radio in Boston. I was called in one day and I was demoted. And I know I was demoted because raised questions about what I was told to tell officers dead. There were detainees they day in and day out. That was Don Hooten, a nurse at the Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia, who filed a whistleblower complaint this week, alleging quote high rates of hysterectomies at times without proper informed consent. The complaint also alleges extensive neglect for covert 19 safety protocols at the detention center, including a lack of testing for the virus and insufficient personal protective equipment for detainees and employees. Project South is the legal advocacy group that filed the complaint spoke with multiple detainees at the Irwin County Detention Center, as well as the whistleblower aboutthe hysterectomies. According to the detainees, and Wooten. A number of women had been sent by officials at the facility to the same gynecologist and could have received his direct Amis that they were unsure were medically necessary. John Washington is a freelance reporter and the author of the Dispossessed and Jose Leave. Bodies is an associate producer with us here at the takeaway. John and Jose. Thanks for joining me. John, You spoke to several Irwin detainees Thiss week about these hysterectomies. What did they tell you? Where these people who had actually gotten the hysterectomies, right? So I think it's absolutely critical to couch these procedures in the larger context of medical neglect and medical abuse that is at crisis levels in this and other immigration detention centers. But the women that we spoke to specifically about the history ectomy Sze did not receive them. But they were told that they needed to receive them. And they didn't understand why. They also told us about a number of other women that did receive them. And nobody explained to them what the procedure was going to be, what exactly it would entail and and what the results of the procedure would be a couple of them push back And one of them said that the doctor became angry after she didn't want the procedure done. And nobody explained to them the follow up care that they're going to receive either. All three women were absolutely angry and indignant about the situation. One of the woman women was weeping, and I think that it's really important. Understand that the women who did receive hysterectomies have been difficult to find. Some of them have been deported, some of them Also, we're telling the women that they didn't understand why they had received these these operations. Jose. You talked to the doctor who performed the procedures on these detainees. What was his response to these allegations? Yes. So I spoke with the doctor. His name is Mahendra. I mean yesterday and essentially, he himself is an immigrant who is a Gynecologist in a smaller hospital in southern Georgia. Very close to where the urban kind of detention centre lies. And what we know about him is that in the past, he has sort of come under fire from the U. S government on allegations of some Medicaid fraud in terms of some some situations that were happening. I mean, That case was settled and there was never really any real capability that was found, But he did have to pay over $500,000 to the federal government for these allegations for the settlement. And essentially when I spoke with him on the phone yesterday, he did confirm that he was the doctor who was performing gynecological procedures on women who came from the Irwin County detention Center that this ice facility. He did confirm that with me, but he was very evasive and speaking with me. Essentially, he told me that he has only done around one or two hysterectomies in the past couple of years. But he did not specify whether those hysterectomies were for women detained in her when he also then essentially told me that what needs to happen is he makes a medical diagnosis. He recommends. What procedure what should be done and then ice and the Orange County detention Center. Sign off and approve any procedure that needs to take place on DH. Then he quickly hung up the phone on me. Do we know John? How many women have had these history ectomy is and whether they were aware of the history Ectomy Sze being performed was this You made some pretty strong claims at the top saying that this is about Medical abuse at detention centers. But what do we know? In terms of the percentage of women who have received these and whether or not they were aware or medically necessary? We don't have a heart member. Part of the difficulty is lack of access to talking to these women. Even their advocates and attorneys have difficulty. One very clear example of that is that yesterday The day after we publish our first report on medical abuses, their system of communication was cut off from the inside so they could not make it was more difficult for them to make calls to the outside. But the numbers that we have are not hard we've had. We've heard a number of estimates from both the whistleblower Don Wooten. Advocates and a couple of the detainee with women that we have spoken with, and the number of that got thrown out a couple times was 20 or more than 20. That was, according to Don Hooton. In the past six years, a couple of the detainee women cited a similar number within even a shorter time frame. Why does that number stand out? I guess I'm trying to understand, Jose, if you've if you know anything here, please weigh in in terms of the overall percentage of hysterectomies that are conducted. At immigration descent detention centers. Is that a high number a low number. Can you help us understand in context? That's why people are calling for investigation. That's why Pelosi has also called for an investigation because we really don't know at what rate this is happening or if this is happening. Another detention centers what one attorney from the Southern Poverty Law Center pointed out to me yesterday eyes that she was really surprised. At how ice and Irwin County detention center were signing off gynecological procedures that she says may not have been entirely necessary. But how ice in the Urban county detention center. We're dragging their feet in providing masks to detainees drag their feet when.

It charges that an outside doctor performed unnecessary history. Rectum ease on women being held at the Irwin County detention Center. And a note. This report includes a description that some may find disturbing Susanna Kappa Ludo with member station W A B E in Atlanta is following the story and joins me now, Susanna, Thanks for being here. This complaint was filed by a nurse who worked at this private ice facility, right? What did it say? Yes, it was submitted as a whistle blower complaints to the Department of Homeland Security Inspector general by the advocacy group Projects South. It's 27 pages long it talks a lot about how the Irwin County detention Center in rural South Georgia. Does not follow CDC guidelines regarding covert 19 that it's not keeping employees and staff saved. There's a lack of personal protective equipment. There's a lack of hygiene things like that. These are issues. Immigrant advocates repeatedly have brought up about other facilities. But this report also mentions a completely new complained. You know where project South gathered comments from immigrant women at the facility, and they expressing their concerns about how many women at Erwin get hysterectomies. Now. This is then backed up by comments from Don Wooten. She's the nurse and whistleblower behind the report, and she said that she and others said the facility questions among themselves. Why an outside doctor quote takes everybody stuff out. That's his speciality. He's thie uterus collector now the doctor is not named in the report. But as you know, we do know the name of the whistleblower. Don Wooton. What more do we know about her? Well, she's worked at their own county detention center, often on for several years. Her latest stint was from October to July, and she came to Atlanta yesterday to give a statement in front of the ice office here. She did not address her comments about the hysterectomies and did not answer questions. But she said this are seeing the conditions inside the facility. Oh, out time's passing. I decided to become a whistleblower. After this last round with covert 19. I myself suffer from sickle cell disease. Underlying condition. And had been told that if I contracted the virus that I probably wouldn't Single parent, five Children alone. She said she started asking questions about why detainees were not tested and complained that there was not enough people for staff. I was called in one day and I was devoted And I know I was demoted because I raised questions about why Inside of a solid pen name. I was told not to tail officers that there were detainees that they dealt with day in and day out that were positive. We have families. No ice records show about 42 cases of covert 19 at the facility and houses about 650 immigrant detainees. How is ice responding to this? Now. They issued a statement and said that the accusations will be fully investigated by an independent office. However, they vehemently dispute the implication that the detainees were used for experimental medical procedures. And now we know House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asked for an investigation. Yes, he is. And also locally. Democrats here are outraged. They asked for investigations, and our governor's office says they've reached out to the Department of Homeland Security for more information and a lot of calls to find out what's behind the report. Susanna Kapalua of member station W. A. B. Thank you. You're welcome. It was a summer photo op that has continued to reverberate in June. Let's remember, federal police use smoke and tear gas to clear a crowded park near the White House for the president. Move violated part of a court ordered settlement, according to lawyers who helped write it. The settlement says federal officers had toe warn protesters in a very specific way before using aggressive tactics. In a temple Reston from NPR's investigations team has more There were peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square near the White House on June 1st marching chanting, and then this happened. At about 6 30 half a hour before a citywide curfew was supposed to go into effect. Police advanced and was seemingly little warning fired tear gas and smoke canisters into the crowd. This was just before President Trump walked across Lafayette Square to pose for a photograph in front of ST John's Episcopal Church. The problem with how this unfolded is that if police wanted to clear the area, they had to warn the protesters first. And they had to do so loudly, so people who didn't want to be arrested could get away. The rules of engagement on DC streets were part of a settlement agreement reached in 2015. It ended a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of people who were caught up in the mass arrests in D. C in 2002. Moreover, Haley in Hilliard founded the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, which represented some of the hundreds of people arrested back then they were held for 24 27 hours or more people were hog tied and stress and duress positions risked ankle a US federal judge approved a settlement agreement that's spelled out in detail. Exactly how police in DC needed to warn protesters before moving in. These procedures are very particular. They include, and that's why we wrote them this way, not just that they have to give notice an opportunity. They have tohave officers at the farthest reaches of a demonstration who are certifying that they've heard that notice. But instructions from the police in Lafayette Square on June 1st were hard to hear..

Explosive charges from nurse at immigrant detention center

"And a whistleblower complaint made by a nurse at a private prison is detention center in. Georgia. Who is expressing concern at the inordinate amount of hysterectomies performed on immigrant women they're content warning here for medical experimentation and alleged eugenics. Several legal advocate groups on Monday filed a whistleblower complaint on behalf of a nurse at immigration customs. Enforcement Detention Center, documenting jarring medical neglect within the facility including refusal to test detainees for Corona virus and into the rate of hysterectomies being performed on immigrant women. The nurse Don Wooten was employed at the Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia which is operated by LaSalle corrections private prison company. This complaint according to law and Crime was filed with the Office of the Inspector General for DHS by advocacy groups of Project South Georgia Detention Watch Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights and South Georgia emigrants support network. Multiple women came forward to tell project south about what they perceive to be an inordinate rate at which women at IC- DC were subject to hysterectomies. This is the surgical operation which in part or takes all or part of the uterus. Additional, many of the immigrant women who underwent the procedure were reportedly confused when asked to explain why they had the surgery and one detainee like their treatment to prisoners in concentration camps. Quote recently, a detained immigrant told project south that she talked to five different women. Detained is CDC between October and December who had a hysterectomy done. When she talked to them about the surgery, the women reacted confused when explaining why they had had the surgery. According to Wootton, the nurse is CDC consistently uses a particular gynecologist outside the facility who almost always opt to remove all or part of the uterus of his female detainee patients. Quote everybody he sees has a hysterectomy or just about everybody. Everybody's uterus cannot be that bad. Quote we've questioned among ourselves like goodness he's taking everybody's stuff out. That's his specialty. He's the uterus collector. I know. That's ugly. She says, is he collecting these things are something everybody? He sees he's taking other uteruses or he's taken their tubes out. What in the world? We also confirms that many of the taint detained women have told her they didn't understand why they were being forced to have the procedure explaining that some of the nurses obtain their consent by simply googling Spanish. The complaint details, several accounts from detainees including one woman who was not properly anaesthetized during the procedure and heard the aforementioned doctor told the nurse. He had mistakenly removed the wrong ovary resulting in her losing all reproductive ability. Another said she was scheduled for the procedure. But when she questioned why it was necessary, she was given three completely different explanations. One quote she. was originally told by the doctor, she had an ovarian cyst and was going to have small twenty minute procedure done drilling three holes in her stomach to drain the cyst, the officer who was transporting her to the hospital on the other hand told her. She was receiving a hysterectomy to have her womb removed when the hospital refused to operate on her because of covid. She was her cheek protests came back positive. She was transferred back to is CDC and the IC CD's sooners said, the procedure she was going to have done was just having her vagina dilated and some tissue scraped off. Another nurse told her then that the procedure was mitigate her heavy menstrual bleeding which the women never experienced when she explained that the nurse responded by getting angry and yelling at her. No other major news outlets by the way are reporting on the story as yet, and this allegation is not invested or investigated but even though it's developing at this point, I wanted to get it out to you.
