One of the women you've spoken to and represent told you about their treatment at the Irwin County facility. Way we are talking to a lot of women. Some of the things that I've heard since 2018 and that I reported to the facility were rough treatment in pelvic exams, leaving the women I'm having difficulty sitting and walking the doctor not explaining procedures that were being done not talking to them during procedures or Giving or recognizing when they they asked for treatment to stop Now, I we want to make clear that you are not part of the whistle blower complaint that was filed on Monday. But are you starting to see Any patterns emerge as you're talking to women that are of particular concern for you. We are starting to see some patterns and I can talk in generalities about those things. I think your your previous guests mentioned or was the caller.

In fall of 2018. I had Several. I would say probably six or less clients and potential clients independently and without prompting from me, bringing up this doctor's treatment in various conversations. It sort of culminated with one of my clients, bringing to my attention that she she was very, very ill on. We had known that for a while she had suffered a miscarriage. And had not received proper treatment for months. At the point where you know everything came to a escalation point, she was thriving in pain, tears running down her cheeks. She, she said she had a fever and An unusual discharge, she I questioned her about medical attention, and she said Pretty much that she would rather suffer in this pain, then go back to the doctor that she had seen at that point. I took it to the facility and begged them to take her to a different doctor and explained in general terms, the breadth of the reports that I had received from people I had talked to And to be clear. Is this the same doctor Dr Mahendran men whose noted in the whistleblower complaint I I didn't have any involvement in the complaint. But that is the same name. That was in my independent recollection that I discussed at that time with women. So over time. Have you seen the facility? Ramp up? Their response to these complaints. No, I haven't. And you know I didn't I didn't think much of it after the fact my client was taken to a different doctor and and hadn't heard very many reports after After that point, I mean, it just wasn't something that was necessarily a part of what I was doing. I'm an immigration attorney, and I represent Represent people in immigration, court and medical neglect and lack of medical treatment is always something that my clients are going through. So when I heard about this report, I I felt Son obviously upset that things had not changed and had escalated but also relieved that someone from the inside of the facility had finally spoken up. Talk about some of the challenges you face in representing your client's in terms of communicating with them. I'm being able t be in regular communication with them. What are some of those hurdles for you? So immigration detention facilities in general are put in rural areas pretty far away from attorneys and medical care. We're also in south Georgia. Here in a bit of a food, desert and medical desert communication challenges involved the distance. But I'm now down here close to their own county detention center in South Georgia. But Whenever stories like this bubble up like the women released a video in March, saying they were very concerned about covert protocols, communication becomes even more difficult, so women I don't have is my Jackson's to the phone or to the tablets for them to be able to call their family members. Things like that. We are still able to schedule with the facility, video and phone calls. But that is not something that happens quickly. It's usually a few day turn around, and we have to wait for an appointment. That's convenient for the facility rather than convenient for the attorney on the client. So when you have a client who expressed his concern Maybe around a medical issue as in 2018 or some other issue. What process do you have to follow? To get that complaint addressed? Is their formal system in place that you that you have to go through? There. There may be a formal complaint process. What I usually do is direct advocacy trying to talk to the facility face to face.

Shocking ICE Abuse of Women Includes Forced Sterilization

"ICE detention center in Georgia is reportedly the site of a mass involuntary sterilization project. A whistle a report published by the nonprofit project south alleges that launched numbers of migrant women held the Irwin County Detention Center, a privately run facility that imprisons undocumented immigrants received hysterectomies that they did not want an which were not medically necessary. The allegations reported project south were I made in a formal complaint by a nurse working at the detention center dorn wooden who describes the conditions there and conversation she had with imprisoned women in detail. The hysterectomies were all allegedly performed by the same outside gynecologist, Mahendra a amine of Douglas Georgia wooden said that one migrant woman referred to. As the Uterus Collector Ameen said that he'd only done one to hysterectomies in the past two, three years responding to the allegations he said everything is wrong and urged reporters to talk to the hospital administrator for more information. The women say they will not told why they were having hysterectomies with some saying they were given conflicting reasons for the procedures reprimanded when about them WHITTEN's account in the project south report was corroborated by two lawyers who said that four women in the facility whom they represent that had been sterilized without medical 'cause and without their consent according to the project South report a detained woman at the Owen County Center said when I met all these women who had surgeries I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp it's like they were experimenting without bodies. As horrific as the allegations are, it's not likely that either the Owen county officials or Dr Amine were experimenting more likely than you exactly what they were doing. In the early twentieth, century White American intellectuals pioneers of race science advancing the idea that undesirable traits could and should be bred out of the population with government planning and selective involuntary sterilization programs. These programs we use to enforce via state law the racist fiction of America as a white country and forced sterilization disproportionately targeted black women. Forced sterilizations like the ones that happen to women of the Irwin County sent him and two women throughout the nation during the twentieth century, a first and foremost human rights violations, cruel abridgement of those women's dignity autonomy and rights to self-determination. But they also statements of white supremacists hostility an assertion by white racists of the thing they most hate and fear. New Americans of color.

"In immigration custody and didn't want him. Although that's up in the air, isn't it? It's still up in the air. And here's the other thing because you remember when this story broke. There was a nurse who had worked at the Irwin County Detention Center. Who came forward as a whistle blower and said that they were doing just bulk hysterectomies on women in that facility. Dozens and dozens and dozens and dozens. She didn't really pursue that claim. When she had an opportunity now through meticulous examination of medical records and interviews. There are four women who have gone on record saying that this gynecologist at this facility Did surgeries that they didn't really understand what he was doing and still don't really know for sure what happened, so it seems like there's a little bit of their there. But it's not the mass hysterectomy thing that the that the nurse originally reported. Yeah, It's a really strange one with her complaint. I think she had filed a lawsuit and didn't mention that at all. And the explosive story here is exactly that allegation, which he didn't make it That time. As Wayne just said.

Venom is one of a growing number of immigrant women who say they were subjected to gynecological procedures without consent. While they were held at the Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia. The first allegations came to light in a whistle blower complaint this week from a nurse at the facility. Since then, lawyers for other women have come forward with similar allegations. Jaipal says the total is now at least 17. This feels particularly agree just because it is obviously Invasive reproductive surgery. And so for every woman in particular across America, this sends chills up our spine. More than 170. Members of Congress have signed a letter calling for an investigation by the homeland Security inspector general. Ice confirmed that Pauline Venom is still in the country and denied any link between her allegations and her scheduled deportation. Spokesman says she was pulled off the plane because of a paperwork snafu with the Cameroonian government, not because of congressional intervention. In a statement. I says that all female detainees received routine gynecological care, and that quote a medical procedure like a hysterectomy would never be performed unquote without informed consent.

One win is Bingham's lawyer at the nonprofit Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights.

One win is Bingham's lawyer at the nonprofit Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, she says been, um sought treatment for in irregular menstrual cycle and thought she was getting a routine procedure. Of course, Pauline was very upset and sort of appalled that this had happened without her consent. Wind says the long term medical implications are not clear. But the procedure could prevent venom from conceiving a child detention itself takes so much away from a person's life. And then for her to have gone through this experience while she was an immigration detention. Just rob serve so much more than her time, Wind says Been, UM complained to the staff at the detention center, but those complaints went nowhere. Irwin is operated by a for profit company LaSalle Corrections, which did not respond to a request for comment. Elizabeth Meth urn is a lawyer who has represented immigrants held at Erwin and other detention centers in Georgia, she says complaints about medical care often fall on deaf ears. They consistently Ignore complaints they consistently act like any complaint is just histrionics. It's ripe for exploitation, right because there's not proper oversight. There's not A proper like Level of humanity. Katherine says lawyers have been raising concerns about medical conditions for years.

"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.

"Last Sunday hours before the Super Bowl kickoff in Atlanta. Immigration officials detained someone they called quote and unlawfully present United Kingdom, national, unquote. They were referring to the rap artists known as Twenty-one savage. How much money? How many people that data rat? How many how many times how many bats a lot from his most recent album, which hit number one on the billboard top two hundred chart last month, immigration and customs enforcement said that Twenty-one savage has overstayed his visa and they've placed him in deportation proceedings. But fans and major figures in music have reacted with outrage saying that the rapper whose birth name has been Abraham Joseph was brought here as a child of seven years old that he's never hidden from the authorities and has pursued whatever avenues for legal status have been open to him. Congressman Hank Johnson. Who represents Georgia's fourth district is also advocating for the rapper and he's with us. Now, congressman thanks so much for joining us. Thank you for having me, Michelle. So the news of Twenty-one savages arrest spread rapidly on Twitter, you wrote a letter to immigration judges calling him a remarkable young, man. And you cited his community efforts. Tell me a little bit more about that. If you would well I had the opportunity last year to participate with him in his third. Annual book bag giveaway. He has an event that draws thousands of young people getting ready to go back to school. So they get book bags crammed with notebooks and pencils and paper. And all the things you need to start school. And he's very loved the people of Atlanta, the people of the community in which he lives this targeted operation to arrest. Entertained Shaha appears to be something that has alterior purposes behind it. So we want to find out exactly what those are just limited. Just clarify a couple of points here that is initially during the when he was initially arrested said that he had a felony conviction. His lawyer say that that is not true. Why do you think that he was arrested? I will say the first of all this is a young black male. We are disproportionately impacted by. Deportation proceedings. So there's a racist ice agenda out there that is being perpetrated whether or not it's because he is black whether or not it's because he has a cross on his forehead tattoo or whether or not it could be due to the record that he released a couple of weeks ago that talks about how ice mistreats children on the southern border. Whatever the reason it is it's bad for Shia. And we're gonna make sure that we do everything we can to get him the help that he needs to face this persecution that he's undergoing by one of the points that you made in your letter is that he supports his siblings that he's the main breadwinner for his family for his his siblings as well. As for his own three children. Do you have any sense of how are they doing with him being detained? Well, he he was immediately taken to a ice detention facility three hours away from home. Down in the Torius Irwin county private for profit detention facility, the largest detention facility for immigrants in the United States of America. He's been held down there in solitary confinement, basically twenty three hours a day. And so his family is worried about him and his community is worried about him. But I understand that he's holding up. Well, and he is determined to see this thing through and he thanks all of his supporters and those who have tried to help him. This was very targeted action taken at a key moment. And it was meant to send a message to immigrants in Atlanta to keep your mouth shut and stay hidden. And so it adds to the climate of terror that is has. Been projecting on the immigrant community in Atlanta ever since Donald Trump came into office. That's congressman Hank Johnson of Atlanta. He represents Georgia's fourth congressional district. Congressman thanks so much for.

"For up in vanishedstampscom promo code stampscom never go to the post office again there might be a scenario possible where the obviously try to convict both of these guys ryan to for the murder of teheran's said in boat dukes for helping cover it up in all the lies he's told let's say would it be possible that they do not have enough evidence to convict ryan of the murder but they still can convict bo dukes for what he did because he actually admitted it and they were able to cooperate this story by finding the body that's absolutely possible i think that given the fact that there's two indictments against bhutto granted that one of the may have a statute of limitations defence the fact that they've indicted though twice in two different counties within the same judicial circuit tells me that they are trying to convict bo and probably trying to send him to prison you got a bear in mind the indictment against ryan is in the 'tipton 'judicial circuit in an entirely different county so the evidence that one would used to try to prosecute bo is entirely different than the evidence that would be used to go after ryan or at least partially different there may be some overlap but these are all three distinctly different indictments i see it's been over eight months now since the arrests and we're approaching nine months slowly approaching a year since theor s cuts we're looking at here i know that these things can take a while this is a very complex case the biggest case file in the history of the gbi but are we any closer than we were at the end of the season if you're talking about how close we are to trial they're keeping this very close to the vis but given what we know that how fast things work in irwin county and how quickly cases go to trial this case is not yet on the radar for trial it seems that there's a lot that needs to be done the supreme court is still considering the gag order in the case it's not impossible that the da might want to go ahead and get.
