Whistleblower Exposes ‘Medical Neglect’ at ICE Facilities

Yesterday, a 27-page complaint filed with the Department of Homeland Security’s internal watchdog detailed the recollections of Dawn Wooten, a Georgia ICE detention facility nurse who claims she saw symptomatic detainees denied COVID-19 tests. The allegations of medical malfeasance, which ICE denied, included the performance of numerous hysterectomies, many on women who didn’t understand explanations for the procedures, at the hands of a doctor known as “the uterus collector.” Wooten accused LaSalle Corrections, the prison’s private operator, of retaliating against those who complained, putting immigrants in solitary confinement for objecting to their treatment and demoting the nurse for questioning their practices.
