Great news! Irwin Detention Center in GA To Be Closed, Investigations ‘Reactivated’

Great news on the Irwin Detention Center from the Georgia NOW President, Triana Arnold James. Georgia NOW had been fighting the alleged sterilizations and other terrible conditions at the Irwin Detention Center in Georgia since last September when a whistleblower exposed conditions there. Nurse Dawn Wooten became a whistleblower last September when she exposed that a doctor waas sterilizing many many women without their consent at this detention center, ‘shoddy Covid care’ as well as the shredding of medical records at Irwin. In addition, The Daily Beast had reported last fall that the doctor who ordered and performed the hysterectomies, Dr. Mahendrakumar Amin, is not even a board-certified OB-GYN. How dare ICE use someone like that. Raleigh NOW was also very interested in this situation, and a member had written to the Georgia state medical board on the terrible doctor. Investigations were reopened on detention center and on this doctor. Action to take to help detained immigrants.
