Rogue ICE Empowered to Detain Pregnant Women

(WASHINGTON)—Kica Matos, spokesperson for the Fair Immigration Reform Movement, FIRM, reacted to the new ICE directive to detain pregnant immigrant women:

“The attacks on immigrants by this administration have reached a new low, even for this morally bankrupt president. Already rogue ICE agents can now make whatever call they want regarding the detention of pregnant women—which will undoubtedly lead to an increase in the number of incarcerated pregnant women.  

This latest directive affirms that this administration has no respect for the dignity and worth of women—or people of color. This is why we fought tirelessly against an increase in DHS funding and this is why we will fight to win in November and remove legislators who support this evil administration.”
