Living the Dream

 

Mixed Media on board

2020

Allegations claiming a high rate of hysterectomies performed on immigrant women, while detained by ICE, have been in the news. 

 

Countless immigrant women have crossed into the US chasing dreams of opportunities not offered in their native countries. Some of these women have reported making the ultimate sacrifice while being detained by ICE - Involuntary sterilization. 

 

Historically, thousands of women of color have been involuntarily sterilized in the US, including Native American women. Arguably the result of racist and anti-immigration sentiment that still exists.
