    I think the particular article refers to one ICE doctor in particular. Whether he just did these things without permission or whether this is part of a bigger problem remains to be seen. 

    Regardless, human rights violation reports at the ICE Detention centers are consistient and seem to be happening often. The Project South document details a lot of reports regarding the mishandling of COVID-19 by ICE.

    Details are still coming in but so far everything I've seen relates to one doctor with a history of performing unwanted procedures to maximize government payouts.  I've heard several accusations of sterilization for racist or political effect but I consider that charge unproved right now.  I note that this story broke on the same day that AG Barr called his own administration's COVID lockdown (some Federal aspects of which his office is in charge of prosecuting) the worst civil rights violation since slavery.  I would suggest that we castrate the Attorney General so that he has an opportunity for real-life comparison if I thought that fat toady had any balls to cut.
