Pregnant Women in ICE Custody Suffer

It’s hard to believe that we’ve come to this point.
According to BuzzFeed News, pregnant women detained in US immigration facilities have suffered miscarriages due to neglect and cruel practices.
In light of BuzzFeed’s investigation, ICE declined to comment on specific cases, but US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand took to Twitter to express her outrage, saying:
Pregnant women say they are being harmed and denied medical care in immigration detention — even when hemorrhaging and miscarrying. What they’ve endured is shocking and heartbreaking. We must fight back even harder against the cruelty and inhumanity of Trump’s politics.
Under the Obama administration, ICE was ordered not to detain pregnant women, except in extreme circumstances.
