HAVANA TIMES – A nurse at a Georgia Immigration and Customs Enforcement prison says the Irwin County Detention Center performs hysterectomies on prisoners without their consent.

Project South sent the explosive whistleblower account to the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Inspector General.

One jailed migrant recounted, “When I met all these women who had surgeries, I thought this was like an experimental concentration camp. It was like they’re experimenting with our bodies.” Nurse Dawn Wooten, the whistleblower, also described neglect and undertesting for COVID-19 at the facility, which is run by the for-profit LaSalle Corrections.

  • This is very true and bad. Many private prison and private nursing homes in the U S are very badly run with profit being more important than humans. In Ontario Canada some private nursing homes and insurance companies are costing lives. But in Canada we can protest the government and get things changed. In Cuba protesters are big trouble often in a bad prison.

  • What ? No comments ? Think if this was going on in Cuba.
