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

Among all the repulsive headlines to appear this week, we’ve learned through a brave whistleblower 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.

It’s an absolute outrage, a disgusting abuse of authority in an already-abusive system, and Congress needs to take immediate action.

Call or email your Members of Congress 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 made your emails and calls (202.224.3121) to your Members of Congress, send this message out on social media and tag them!
