First, though, for all the attention on proposed new voting restrictions under consideration in the Texas Legislature, we really don't know what a final bill might entail. That's because after the state Senate passed its bill in the middle of the night and early April last week, the Texas House Elections committee gutted that bill and replaced it with its own language again passed a night with no public input news. 88 7 politics and Government reporter Andrew Schneider joins us now. Good morning, Andrew. Hello first remind us what was in the bill that the state Senate passed early last month. The bill that the state Senate passed include among Clinton, among other things, bands on 24 hour voting and drive through voting. It also would have included Language that would have restricted that the restricts local election officials from sending out mass mailings of applications to vote by mail. And what's in the one that the House Election Committee approved late last week? Well, it includes that ban on on sending out mass mailings, but it doesn't include the 24 hour voting ban. It doesn't include the ban on drive through voting. What it does include is Requirement to assist voters to disclose the reason that the voter might need help in casting a ballot, either. That's for medical reasons. It also enhances protections for partisan poll watchers, making it a crime for Election workers to expel those poll watchers. Unless the poll watchers themselves. They're committing a crime. Why did the committee suddenly changed the language in the bill before voting on it last week? That seems to have been purely on Chairman Briscoe Crate at Briscoe Cane. Hey, was concerned about the ability to get it through. He didn't give a whole lot of reasons you he only said, you know that the language that he was proposing was essentially the same as H B six and therefore it didn't require hearing And that got a lot of pushback from Democrats as well as one Republican who initially refused to vote in favor of passing the bill. But then, later in the day, they came back, and he voted to pass it. And this was again without without any testimony of public comment. Is that unusual? It's It's very unusual and that and the it's casts cast all sorts of questions about the ability to pass the entire bill through the house. So where does this process go now? Well, the next step for for SB seven. The building that passed out of the committee last week would be to go to the calendar's committee. It's It's right now behind the original bill HB six, which was already submitted to the calendar's committee. The calendar's committee is the one that's responsible for scheduled when the bill comes up for a vote on the House floor. So what does that mean? So they're two different bills then that the house might might consider exactly exactly And it's likely given the time and that HP six will go first. That also seems to be something that was deliberate on chairman Cain's part to get his bill out in front. And if that is what they debate first, and the full House votes to approve that, then it's different from what the Senate approved and so what happens then? Well. When the SP seven goes back to the Senate, they'll have that have a conference of members of both the Senate and the House. And then, though, the side which elements if any of either bill, they will be able to combine into a version that both would have to vote on.
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.

night Lou from a tip tipster that knows a lot about the time mace immigration customs enforcement detention center this is where ice holds various illegal immigrants pending deportation last night I was given some really bad information bill it really bad and disturbing news that my source told me that there's a corona virus outbreak there I and it is mainly because they've been apprehending ready for this a number of Chinese nationals a number of Chinese nationals that came across the border thank goodness they apprehended them thank goodness they help them because these individuals could have been spreading the covert nineteen virus you might see book how do you know just because you're Chinese glad you asked Lou we have at least three confirmed Chinese with covert nineteen at that facility and here's the here's the kicker one of the Colbert nineteen positive Chinese nationals who illegally entered this country was released in the last twelve hours was it is released its is insane right it's absolutely insane in the midst of all this we are we're we're weird sheltering in place as a nation nobody's working nobody's earning and our immigration laws are literally working against us down to the letter a Chinese national that is positive for coping nineteen was released administratively yeah right I mean they they basically did that's the catch and release when they say you need to come back in two weeks and talk to the judge but yeah I have a nice day I was told well he was released with bond and I am you know so what and he came in here illegally illegally he doesn't seem to respect the laws so not only is he covered nineteen positive but he according to my source is not staying in San Diego he's heading to another major metropolitan city because he had to advise where he was going and that this this a trip to the city's gonna require that he gets on an airplane in San Diego's airport and flights I given not making this up this guy's last name is chan by the way okay I got I got his full name is gonna give last name because I figured Chen you know there's a lot of Chinese with the last name Chandan so web not sure if it's can get it tip off who it is but the reality is I don't care if it tips off to the media who it is this guy needs to be apprehended and detained and sent back to China there's no doubt no question about it he should not be released but now we've got all these new Democrats demanding that the ice detention centers be completely opened up and that you allow people out because we have cope in nineteen in the detention centers where do you think it came from it didn't come from our our our ice agents they did come from border patrol boats coming from illegal immigrants were stopping at the border we don't want them to contaminate our communities dammit that's the whole point as to how you lock people down they should be crossing in the first place and when they do get across we should be detaining them testing them and keeping them there end of story but not the Democrats they like open borders because they need the racist issue and they also want the votes it's always been about the politics to them well it is certainly all out the politics then which is why it is so important for you and I and and everybody that understands us to continue to put this out there and continue to inform folks because this is actually happening I mean actually eat it not the illegal did apprehensions from countries other than Mexico in this case China who I were tested and tested positive for corona virus where will I did the fact that they're able to be released to travel within the continental United States a pending an upcoming hearing is insane well it worse unless the Democrats not only won the opening up opening of the ice detention centers today our own senator Dianne Feinstein joined one of our local congresspeople congressman Juan Vargas in demanding an investigation in demanding an investigation of the tie mesa detention center not for the fact that they released a Chinese national with covert nineteen that's of no interest to them no they say that the conditions are quote horrifying unacceptable inhumane violating human rights standards that's what they want to investigate how are we treating how are we catering to the illegal immigrants that have gotten to this country and worse they say that they're giving the cook the detainees masks they're giving the detainee masks okay fine to giving the mass let me guess they're feeding them too long no no it's giving the masks but they're asking them to sign a waiver of liability I'm sorry but if if if I give you any sort of medical medical care I think it's pretty smart for me to ask for a waiver of liability I think asking for waivers of liability is there's nothing wrong with that but nope that's a violation of human rights now time base officials say they're not doing that practice but even if they did I I wouldn't find a problem with it Lou no and the fact that this is what's important to senator Dianne Feinstein this isn't what's important just said the congressman Juan Vargas here now is absolutely insane and it's about one of the reasons that we have to call them out on it things that are happening out there call would never happen under normal conditions in this mort we gonna tell you about it

"I mean Goodman with one kansallis we're joined by Dr Scott Al and a government whistle blower, who was hard in two thousand fourteen to inspect family facilities where immigrant families are incarcerated. She still on contract department of homeland security office of civil rights and civil liberties, he Dr Pamela MacPherson were shocked at what they observe jury their inspections and raise concerns internally last year, they contacted lawmakers to speak out against family separation, and family detention and continue to do. So now after their concerns where he lured by the Trump administration. They were recently awarded the two thousand nineteen written our prize for truth, telling Dr Scott joins us from Irvine, California, welcome to democracy, now doctor Allen. Can you tell us what you have found in why you decided to speak out? You are still on contract. That is correct. Amy. Thank you for having me. What document I in and I have been advising our government for really going back to twenty four teen but more intensively over the course of the last year. Is that a policy that prioritises confinement of children over care of them is deeply flawed? A lot of the chaos, you're seeing on the border with the detention of children and their families is a predictable outcome of these flawed policies, and we made specific warnings against these practices, really from the very first days, we I inspected, the very first family attention facility in two thousand fourteen in our Thisiis, New Mexico, that experience was very important in illustrating that it's very difficult to keep children safe in detention. We found that in spite of mobilizing significant resources and personnel that the facility struggled to keep children safe, and in fact, did not have adequate pediatricians are qualified health professionals to identify problems recurring right in front of their eyes. And doctor, of course, this started under President Obama, the first the first family detention centers and then been ramped up now under on their President Trump and your, your sense. These facilities often are often in rural isolated areas where it's very hard, not only as you say to get the proper of medical professionals there, but also to have any kind of a count ability from the general public or even a journalist as well. Could you talk about the problems? You've had been able to get the word out about what's going on. Well, yeah, the there have been problems all the way through with transparency of these facilities. They are run more like secured facilities that you might think would be appropriate for organized crime members or even terrorists something where there's a great security threat. These young parents and they're very young children. Do not represent that type of threat. And if indeed we were treating them humanely, we would be very open and transparent about how we do that. But in fact, the, the accountability mechanisms of which the office of civil rights and civil liberties that I work for is a part of as well as other accountability mechanisms like the office of the inspector general or over set by congress, we would have to say that they have all failed to keep children safe and the evidence is now. Well. Reported in the news. With the unfortunate news of child deaths that we predicted early on and warned the government were a very likely outcome of these policies, as well as the deteriorating conditions that children are held under such as the reports for getting out of the Clint Phillipi when you raise concerns that children would die in our teasha, this New Mexico. They shut the facility down. Right. That's. Can you describe what happened there? And then go on to describe what happened when you went to the jails and Koren's run by geo group and, and daily run by core civic, the two private prison companies. So as I said, the artesia story was very important one for us because it it's sort of illustrated in very stark terms, the dangers of trying to rapidly stand up facilities that will house young, particularly vulnerable children member. These are children who have often been traumatized already, and the harmful effects of trauma are cumulative over a lifetime. I'm so they're very vulnerable population of children. They're also often poor physical health, and the idea of congregating children together, when they're often not vaccinated is a public health disaster. So we saw that there were number of problems in keeping the children safe. And the probably the most poignant examples that we documented is, we've looked at weights, I pulled the charts of every child there. And I looked at their weights across the course of their stay. And was really surprised to see that a significant number of children, who probably entered the facility to some extent, malnourished, given their perilous journeys were not gaining weight in the facility, which is what you'd expect if it were a healthy in nurturing facility, but they were in fact, losing weight, which is really disturbing marker that we did not expect. And then reviewing this cases we've found the case of one infant in eighteen month old who had been suffering from diarrheal illness, and have become quite dehydrated. The mother kept presenting the child to the physicians. The problem was that the physicians were being rotated in on temporary duty assignments from adult facilities. They were physicians who didn't have a lot of experience in, in treating children, and they totally missed, the fact, of course of multiple doctor visits that the child lost a third of its body weight ten percent being sort of the usual panic moment for clinicians. Send the child to emergency room for intravenous hydration. So when we identified this case, we were able to say to the government, it was a neural this child did not die of a very easy to diagnose, and very easily, treatable and common medical condition that, that we told them that they were playing with fire here that the challenges of keeping vulnerable children. Safe in these environments were enormous, and that if they continued, and particularly if they expanded the risk of losing a child, or more than one child was very high doctor. I want to ask you about you filed comments on the Trump administration's proposed rule changes under the Florus settlement, what which currently limits to twenty days amount of time that a child can be kept in a. Can be detained to indefinite detention. Could you talk about your concerns about this indefinite detention given the, the kinds of conditions that you've already witnessed? Well, yes, it's a very important point. I let me start by saying that as physicians. We are keenly aware of decades of literature that show us that the confinement of children in and of itself, is harmful to their health, leading to increase risks down the road lifelong increase risks of depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder and even physical health problems like heart disease and diabetes. This is well known. That's a result of confinement itself. The toxic stress of isolated from community. But this is exacerbated when the confinement is indefinite, the additional stress imposed by uncertainty of the future can increase the trauma, all of that harm is known before you even get to the types of things. We've just been talking about if you can't provide the necessary supports to care for vulnerable child population. The harms can be exacerbated this. What really distressed us is that in addition to the known harmful effects of confinement? We knew that the government would struggle under the best of circumstances to be able to provide adequate resources to keep these children safe. And in fact, everything that's followed has confirmed that worry you calling. For more whistle blowers. I think accountability and transparency is important to some extent. I think the reason that a year after my colleague, and I made these disclosures about the terrible conditions. We had documented the dangerous to children that it's a year later in. I appreciate the fact that the public is once again, paying attention and expressing outrage. But I think the challenges that were relying on reports on accounts, but we're not seeing as the public what's going on inside these facilities. Remember for those of us who do get to visit these facilities, and enter them, we're looking into the eyes of young mothers? We're looking into the eyes of young children who are suffering under these policies, and we see the human cost. I think most Americans if they were confronted with the humanity of. What we are doing. Here would be outraged and would not tolerate it. It's got Alan. We wanna thank you for being with us, medical doctor whistle blower, higher two thousand fourteen to expect facilities where immigrant families are incarcerated on contract currently with the department of homeland security office of civil rights and civil liberties speaking out today about what he seen on the inside. This is democracy now. I mean, the Goodman with one kansallis, which are not the traumatic impact on the mental health of migrant children from being held by the border patrol and immigration customs enforcement detention centers in Oakland. We're joined by thoughts gay a psychotherapist who was born in the Tula lake segregation center. Maximum security interment camp, put Japanese Americans during World War Two this past week, and she risked arrest along at a protest against the plan to detain migrant children at fort sill, Oklahoma, the site of a former Japanese American internment camp in World War, Two sat skate. Welcome to democracy. Now, we played a clip of you from that protests that democracy now is Rene felts covered in Oklahoma on Saturday, as you listen to these descriptions of the children, and you yourself having been detained borne Tuli lake what you call a concentration camp for Japanese Americans over one hundred ten thousand Japanese and Japanese-Americans weren't turned in the United States in these camps during World War Two, what are your thoughts? Well, Japanese-American community has come to realize that what is happening to children in these detention. Facilities is so resonant of the trauma that we suffer during World War Two and. After decades of, of living our lives as compliant and quiet and. Demonstrating in proving ourselves as good citizens. Many of us have felt that it's time for us to speak out to, to protest to resist and to speak out in ways that we haven't in the past because we know what these children are experiencing. We know what it's like to have family separation to suffer the long term consequences of the trauma of being incarcerated for some of us. More than four or five years. Can you feel like it's really important to speak out and you were also a psychotherapist so talk about your own experiences child intern? And what you're seeing about the children who are in turn today, who are jailed today, the psychological effects that has. So, yes, I was my family was held for over four years. And I was born in a concentration camp. And the lifelong effects, I think have lead me to become a psychotherapist to try and understand what happened to us and recognize that these children today held in captivity separated from from loving care of adults is very disturbing. Do you know the, the reality that this is happening again is? Causing many of us to recognize that this is an injustice that is so. Discussed in the same way, presented in the same way that we were threat to national security that we were an unassailable race of people that we were. A threat to our to the economy of the United States. These are so much echoing what happ- what charges were against made against us that were unjust and without any basis. And these children are growing up in, you know, a, a time of tremendous chronic states of trauma, captivity. Trauma is known to have lifelong effects on children growing up and resulting in depression and anxiety scales.
