U.S. Temporarily Halts Deportation of Immigrants Who May Have Been Forcibly Sterilized in GA Prison

HeadlineNov 25, 2020

In immigration news, the U.S. government has agreed to temporarily stall the deportation of immigrants who say they may have undergone invasive gynecological procedures — including forced sterilizations — while imprisoned at Irwin Detention Center in Georgia. A letter by over 100 Democratic lawmakers issued earlier this month says at least six survivors have reportedly been deported. Several others faced imminent deportation as dozens of people came forward with horrifying stories of invasive procedures they didn’t agree to or didn’t understand. Click here to watch our interview with Jaromy Floriano Navarro, a survivor who was deported to Mexico.
