Lawyers allege abuse of migrant women by gynecologist for Georgia ICE detention center

WASHINGTON -- A nurse who worked at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Irwin County, Georgia and four lawyers representing clients there are claiming that immigrant women are routinely being sent to a gynecologist who has left them bruised and performed unnecessary procedures, including hysterectomies.

The doctor, who three lawyers identified as Dr. Mahendra Amin, practicing in Douglas, Georgia, has continued to see women from the Irwin County Detention Center for the past several years despite complaints from his patients.

Amin was the subject of a Justice Department investigation in 2015 for making false claims to Medicaid and Medicare. As a result, he and other doctors involved paid $525,000 in a civil settlement, according to the Justice Department.

The lawyers identified the doctor after a whistleblower complaint to the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security was filed by Dawn Wooten, who worked as a nurse inside the facility. She said in there complaint that detainees were not getting COVID-19 tests and other needed medical care.

Wooten worked full time as a licensed practical nurse at the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia, until being demoted in July.

Where are all of these militia anti-government types who profess to be against government over-reach? Oh, they are not citizens so it is ok? Wrong color too I bet!

8. Ainsley was interviewed by Nicolle Wallace today

and she said that the “doctor” had previously settled a lawsuit for Medicaid fraud. He should have lost his license THEN. Who is being billed for these procedures? It seems unlikely that these women would have Medicaid. How is this doctor being paid and who is overseeing this?

12. The state of Georgia evidently doesn't care if it licenses a crook and a sadist.

This man’s medical license needs to be revoked immediately. He is performing operations on women who do not need them, do not want them, and aren’t even being told what they’re for. That should be illegal in any state, even a Republican one.

9. Yes, demote and/or fire those who root out corruption

And fines and new lucrative government contracts for shady crooks who can afford to pay off half million dollar bills for their prior corruption.



Lock them up and promote the whistleblowers!

13. EmmmHrmm, and right on cue. Told ya they were gonna blame the doctor, AS AN INDIVIDUAL.

A 'bad apple', as it were, and claim they the company running this concentration camp on behalf of the Trump Administration, take no responsibility whatsoever and it's a terrible mistake and we would NEVER condone such practices OF COURSE you should keep paying us for this vital service we provide the American Public

I'm gettin really fucking tired of being right all the goddamn time.

14. If this is true,

I am in favor of completely restructuring our government -top to bottom, bottom to top. Nazi, fascist, authoritarian, criminal, assholes - that is simply not my thing.

Start the fuck over. I want no part of this type of country.

If true, we need an international tribunal. Massive punishment - banishment for those involved.

18. Fucking Mengele. An American Mengele.

When we walk out as a people into the light of day after being the darkness of the Trump 'administration,' there had better be some indictments, arrests and trials. And every single one of those immigrants need reparations, and those kids need to be reunited with their families no matter how hard it is or how expensive it is to trace them down.

And Trump had better be up on treason charges.
