ICE tries to deport potential witness in Georgia doctor investigation

first_img“The women, like the girls that are speaking up, they’re getting deported, like they’re getting rid of them,” Adan continued to Vice News. “They’re getting rid of us.” A petition seeking to block her deportation has been launched by advocacy group Mijente.

Adan told Vice News that like others have described, she never gave the doctor consent, nor was she even told what procedure he was performing on her.“He was ‘overly aggressive,’ she said,” according to the report. “When asked whether this could have been a transvaginal ultrasound, Adan said it could, but to this day, she does not know precisely what he did.” She told Vice News that she “was shocked because, like, first of all, he didn’t explain to me what’s the procedure that he was doing to me. And he was rough on me. There was a couple of times where I said, ouch.” Johnson said during a House floor speech last month that he spoke with one detained woman “who felt pressured to agree to a gynecological surgical procedure that she was not convinced was necessary.” But when she refused, “the doctor ordered mental health evaluation. Being referred to mental health for not wanting a surgical procedure that wasn’t explained to her is completely unacceptable. Another woman told us she was subject to invasive procedures without consent and then was not given any follow-up appointments.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Campaign ActionVice News reports that four other witnesses or potential witnesses have also faced threats of deportation or have already been deported for trying to expose abuses that legislators called “a horror show” following an inspection of the facility in September. “Women at Irwin County detention described a disturbing pattern that many who visited a doctor for Gyno/OBGYN issues came back worse,” California Rep. Nanette Barragán tweeted at the time. – Advertisement – Adan said she was vocal in speaking out about what happened to her, writing to legislators and speaking to organizations, when she was told to get ready for what Vice News describes as imminent deportation to Mexico. That was blocked by Johnson’s office, though that may only be a temporary reprieve because “her lawyers still fear it could happen at any time,” the report continued. ICE’s retaliation is in fact common, and it intentionally forces abused immigrants into silence. Last month, officials attempted to deport two Black immigrants who said in a civil rights complaint that agents tortured them in order to coerce them into deportation. The asylum-seekers were pulled off the flight at the very last moment. But others haven’t been.“There has been a policy choice to allow the system that deports people without allowing them to testify or allowing government to investigate what happened to them,” Andrew Free, an immigration attorney helping in investigation efforts, told Vice News. “The consequence is that they essentially complete the obstruction of evidence.” He said people may be perfectly willing to bravely expose abuses, but then fear it will negatively impact their case and lead to separation from their family.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Scrap season if it can’t be finished by end of June says Kane

But that’s just my opinion,” he said.“Football is secondary at the moment. I know there still have to be plans in place, and I’m sure everyone is trying to do that.“All that is out of my hands though, there’s nothing I can do personally, so from my point of view we’ve just got to wait and see what happens.

But there needs to be a point where enough is enough.“Playing into July or August and pushing next season back I don’t see too much benefit in that. But obviously I don’t know too much about behind the scenes and financially.“Probably the limit for me is the end of June. If the season’s not completed by the end of June we need to look at the options and just look forward to next season.”Premier League matches could potentially be staged behind closed doors in a bid to complete this campaign once the current lockdown in Britain is over.Kane does not think dragging out the season will help anyone though, especially if it delays the next term.

Jose Mourinho goes from Special One to Beaten One

first_imgAnother match, another defeat for Jose Mourinho.Sunday’s 3-1 loss at Watford was United’s third in eight days and sent statisticians scrambling to find out when the ‘Special One’ had last been such a Beaten One.The answer was 2006. While Mourinho did lose three consecutive games last year with Chelsea, one of those was after a shootout in the Capital One Cup.After Sunday’s defeat Mourinho was philosophical, suggesting that luck will eventually shine on his team, but he will struggle to deflect criticism that United lack the discipline and order usually associated with his teams.The uncertainty over Wayne Rooney epitomises his problems. The striker started off playing a more withdrawn role against Watford, apparently to allow Paul Pogba to forge further forward. (Also read: Manchester United lose 3-1 to Watford, slump to their third defeat in eight days)But England’s top scorer seldom looked comfortable, mistiming passes and tackles on a frustrating afternoon. After the break he pushed further forward as United chased the equaliser and, when Marcus Rashford delivered it, appeared to have stumbled on a formation that worked until Watford proved otherwise.Critics suggest that when Mourinho finds his best team it will probably not include both Rooney and Pogba, who like to occupy the same areas.Although the $116 million Frenchman hit the crossbar with one fizzing first-half shot, he was largely outshone in midfield by his compatriot Etienne Capoue, who joined Watford in the summer for $108 million less that United lavished on the former Juventus star.advertisementOnce again United were undone by individual mistakes, failing to track the build-up that led to Juan Zuniga’s goal and then giving away a soft penalty late on.”The second goal was an individual mistake,” said Mourinho. “We know we have to press and not allow them one in the box. We know the midfielders arrive like the first goal from behind so there is another individual mistake. I cannot control, I cannot improve the referee and linesman and I cannot be critic. Luck – she will arrive.”One problem for Mourinho is that across Manchester his great rival Pep Guardiola appears not to need any, having just notched up an eighth successive win in all competitions for City, who are playing with a freedom that reminds many of Barcelona.Already City have beaten United at Old Trafford and now sit six points ahead of them in the league. Mourinho is not used to having such an embarrassing spotlight shone on his abilities and will require an immediate response when United travel to lowly Northampton in the League Cup on Wednesday.Anything less than a comfortable win is surely unthinkable.last_img read more
