Mexico’s foreign ministry released a statement that an investigation has found that two women have alleged receiving non-consensual surgeries while they were being held by US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  This was found during a larger investigation of a privately-run ICE detention center, Irwin County Detention Center, located in Ocilla, Georgia.  ICE has stated that these are serious concerns that warrant an investigation.
