Their release also comes after the previous administration deported a number of women from the case, including one woman who said Amin performed a hysterectomy on her without her consent. She was later deported to El Salvador. “Deportations of any potential witnesses are halted under court order,” the AP continued, “even after ICE tried to withdraw its support in court for an agreement originally reached by the Department of Justice.”

The complaint filed by advocates last month alleged a pattern of retaliation against immigrants who dared to speak out Amin’s abuse, including the use of deportation. “Respondents have further retaliated against and attempted to silence Petitioners by deporting or attempting to deport them in retaliation for their speech or attempted speech about the abuses they have suffered at Respondents’ hands,” the complaint said.

In the case of Jaromy Jazmín Floriano Navarro and Jane Doe #31, both “were deported within a day after they spoke out or confirmed that they had spoken out about medical abuses at ICDC,” the complaint said. This rush by ICE to quickly deport victims and witnesses was so aggressive that advocates rushed to court to successfully force the Trump administration to not take any further action against the women until President-elect Joe Biden came into office... ​
