TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Over a dozen protesters were taken away in cuffs during an anti-ICE demonstration against allegation of unwanted hysterectomies at the border, in Lower Manhattan Thursday evening.
The rally started in Foley Square and made its way down to World Trade Center to speak out against allegation of unwanted hysterectomies at the border, according to videos and accounts from the scene.
Videos posted to Twitter show a heavy presence of police and bike cops creating a barricade to keep the protestors from heading into the street.
The police officers could be seen arresting over 15 protesters on the streets of New York City, who took to the streets to protest against the alleged procedures.
According to reports, following the complaint by nurse Dawn Wooten, the US Department of Homeland Security has opened an investigation into the allegations that immigrant women have been subjected to unwanted surgical procedures at the privately ran Irwin County Detention Center in Georgia, resulting in them being unable to conceive.
