Investigate medical neglect and forced hysterectomies in ICE detention

21 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

I'm sure that you know that a brave whistleblower recently filed a complaint alleging "jarring medical neglect" within the Irwin Detention Facility in Georgia, including a refusal to test immigrants who are detained there for coronavirus, and an alarming number of hysterectomies performed on immigrant women held in the facility. These horrifying new allegations follow years of carefully documented medical neglect within immigration detention.  I want you to demand an investigation and to ensure that more money isn't funneled into this desperately dangerous system.  Specifically, I'm asking that you publicly call for an immediate on-the-ground investigation by the Office of Inspector General, publicly demand the immediate closure of the Irwin Detention Center and REJECT any request for extra money for CBP.
