Description

ICE has already faced lawsuits and allegations of medical neglect, abuse, and unsafe confinement conditions. A new whistleblower complaint, now under DHS investigation, claims that many migrant detainees at an ICE facility in Ocilla (Georgia) had hysterectomies and other procedures without their full knowledge and consent. 
In this episode, Jamille Fields Allsbrook, director of Women´s Health and Rights at the Center for American Progress, explains the seriousness of the allegations, the past history of forced sterilizations in the US, and the need for congressional oversight.
