Today’s Action: Defund involuntary hysterectomies in ICE detention centers

Last week, before we learned of the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the subsequent race to save SCOTUS, we also discovered that detained immigrant women at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center in Ocilla, GA are receiving involuntary or coerced hysterectomies.

Our country has a long, dark history of forcing sterilization on women of color. And it’s not even a thing of the past – there’s strong evidence that poor women of color are currently compulsorily sterilized at significantly higher rates than white women. It’s a horrific example of the ways violent racism and sexism is built into the American “healthcare” system, and now we know it’s playing out inside Trump’s ICE detention centers on some of the most vulnerable, scared, victimized people in the world.

RBG’s legacy isn’t just about saving her seat – it’s about fighting for all women everywhere. And the House is expected to vote soon on a continuing resolution to fund this disgusting abuse of authority over immigrant women in an already-abusive system.

The vote is expected as soon as this week in the House! Call or email your Members of Congress Representative and demand the following actions to fight for justice for the women in Irwin County Detention Center – and any potential future victims of forced sterilization in ICE detention centers:

  • Call for the immediate and urgent investigation of Irwin County Detention Center, examining all accusations of wrongdoing revealed by the whistleblower.
  • Call for the immediate closure of Irwin County Detention Center.
  • Tell them to reject ANY additional funding in the upcoming continuing resolution that could potentially be shifted into furthering and increasing Trump’s detention center machine, including extra funds for Customs and Border Patrol (CBP).
  • And while you’re on the phone…tell them to #DefundICE.

After you’ve emailed and called (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress, send the message out on social media and tag them!
