Homeland Security Shuts Down 2 Migrant Facilities Over Abuse Allegations

Department of Homeland Security. Donna, TX facility.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shut down two migrant facilities operated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday over allegations of misconduct and abuse, including the claim that unwanted medical procedures were inflicted on immigrants. Carlos Carreiro Immigration Detention Center in Bristol County, Massachusetts, and the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia will no longer be operated following the DHS announcement.

Fox News reports:

The facility in Bristol County, run under an agreement with the local sheriff’s office, is “no longer operationally necessary,” DHS said in a statement. The Washington Post reported that the Bristol facility is holding seven detainees, while Irwin has 114.

The Irwin facility was the subject of a whistleblower accusation last year in which it was claimed that a doctor performed unwanted hysterectomies on female inmates. There were also further allegations of unsanitary conditions at the facility. The DHS Office of Inspector General is investigating the allegations and the doctor accused has denied wrongdoing.

Meanwhile, the Post reported that the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office is under investigation after staff used pepper balls and a flash-bang against detainees who threw chairs at staff amid a dispute over COVID-19 testing and isolation.

“Allow me to state one foundational principle: We will not tolerate the mistreatment of individuals in civil immigration detention or substandard conditions of detention,” Mayorkas said in a memo to acting ICE Director Tae Johnson.

The move comes as the Biden administration works to reform the immigration system in the country after claiming it was broken by the Trump administration.

They worry about immigrants but what about the abusive treatment our Trump supporters are getting in the D.C. jail? They are treated like they are in a third world country! It’s about time the GOP stopped this. The only person I’ve heard on video is Marjorie T. Greene speaking out. And two Democrat Senators. No word from anyone else. Some days I think they are just caving, time for a strong backbone!

Organ harvesting?

My God, just look at the report about the scalp of newborns being removed and attached to rats as experiments. It was on Fox News last night on Tucker Carlson. We have a real doctor Mengele running the show and funding the Wuhan lab to create the viruses and doing insane experiments.

That would be Mengele Fauci I believe.

This administration is really inhumane. Their selfishness to bring in new voters and change demographics surpasses anything that we have seen in history, while the people suffer, are abused, and the human trafficking continues of these minors.

People who want to come to live in America should be vetted for a variety of reasons before being given the right to becoming an American!
Anything else is unacceptable as these are unknown people and their backgrounds need to be well looked into before they are allowed to be accepted as residents in America!

Biden is a nasty senile man. The Communist party is alive & well in the “Biden” administration.

When you have numskull administrators in the Biden administration interacting with spoiled-brat illegal aliens, you have a receipt for trouble. And that’s what they are getting. Deport them all, and get American back to being American – NOT alien!

It seems to me that immigrants coming to America should have to accept the rules and regulations of the country! These people chose to come to America and if they want to make their homes there, they must accept the rules of their new country! If they can’t do that, they’ll have to be aent back to their countries of orogim!

Biden is keeping kids in cages at the border, or moving them to other locations to put them in cages. They are seperated from their families. Media- crickets.

We have to wear masks and asked to
Show proof of vaccination, yet they think showing ID is racist. Are only whites going to be required to show proof. Are the illegals at the border showing proof?
