Investigators haven’t interviewed at least eight women who were deported after receiving questionable medical diagnoses and treatment at Irwin County Detention Center, VICE News has learned.
As many as a dozen women will have their deportations delayed until President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January.
Mbeti Ndonga, 37, was brought to the U.S. as a toddler. Now she's facing deportation after undergoing gynecological surgery in ICE custody.
"I told him 'no,' but he kept going. 'Relax,' he told me."
Brought to the U.S. at age 3, ICE detained the 36-year-old mother and then attempted to deport her to Mexico after she had procedures with a controversial gynecologist.
“They're getting rid of us,” a woman on the verge of being deported tells VICE News.
