This is the latest in a set of shocking cases of complete disregard for human life committed by ICE, an organization that was recently outraged by being compared with the "Gestapo" in Congress.
Here are the details in their latest crime.
Jason Ng, a resident of an immigration detention facility, had complained of severe back pain since April. He was initially moved to a lower bunk, and allowed a wheelchair... but he was not allowed access to medical care. When his condition worsened, they stopped letting him use a wheelchair. This prevented him from seeing his family (since he was unable to move to the visiting area).
In July, without any explanation and in excruciating pain, they dragged him in shackles to Hartford and back "bruising his arms and legs". His sister believes that, not wanting to provide a medical examination to evaluate his condition, they wanted to "prove" that he was faking.
His autopsy showed that he suffered from a fractured spine and undiagnosed cancer.
Jason leaves behind a wife and children- all U.S. citizens.
Jason came to the U.S. when he was 17. He was trying to become legal and was arrested while he was going for a interview with immigration officials because a couple of years ago, he never received a notice that was sent to the wrong address.
But the details don't matter. This is another example of torture by an immigration enforcement agency run amok.
