Federal Prosecutor Drops Bombshell: Up To 100 Girls May Have Had Their Genitals Cut In Michigan

That is just in Michigan.  The number of victims nationwide would be in the hundred of thousands.

A federal prosecutor dropped a bombshell in court Wednesday, telling a federal judge that the government estimates that as many as 100 girls may have had their genitals cut at the hands of a local doctor and her cohorts.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward disclosed the information while trying to convince a judge to keep a doctor and his wife locked up in the historic case. It involves allegations that two Minnesota girls had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic in February as part of a religious rite of passage and were told to keep what happened a secret.

“Due to the secretive nature of this procedure, we are unlikely to ever know how many children were cut by Dr. (Jumana) Nagarwala,” Woodward said, referring to the lead defendant in the case,  later adding, “The Minnesota victims were not the first victims.”

Against Woodward’s wishes, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman granted bond to two other defendants in the case: Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, of Farmington Hills, who is accused of letting Nagarwala use his clinic to perform genital cutting procedures on minor girls; and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, who is accused of holding the girls’ hands during the procedure to keep them from squirming and to calm them.

The government believes the three defendants, all members of a local Indian-Muslim sect, subjected numerous girls to genital cutting procedures over a 12-year period. To date, the government says it has identified eight victims — including the two Minnesota girls — though Woodward said the government estimates there could be as many as 100 victims. She said that’s a conservative estimate, and that it’s based on Dr. Attar’s alleged admission to authorities that he let Nagarwala use his clinic up to six times a year to treat children for genital rashes.

ACLU Fights Against Law Criminalizing Female Genital Mutilation In Maine.  There is a federal law against FGM.  Maine Rep. Sirocki wants a state law against FGM in Maine.

Maine GOP Rep. Heather Sirocki is sponsoring bill LD745 which would make the Islamic ritual of female genital mutilation (FGM) a crime. However, the American Civil Liberties Union is very much opposed to the legislation.

Sirocki says Maine is a high-risk area in America for FGM and happens so often that the federal government sends special funds to help the state. The bill would make FGM a Class B crime which carries a $20,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison. In addition, the bill punishes parents and/or guardians of the victim and criminalizes “vacation cutting” — where the victim is flown overseas to have the “procedure.”

According to The Daily Caller, the ACLU “staunchly opposes the protection.”

“ACLU spokesman Oamshri Amarasingham said that the risk of mutilation isn’t worth expanding Maine’s criminal code,” the report states. “The Maine Coalition Against Sexual Assault also supported the ACLU, arguing that FGM is not happening in Maine.” TruthRevolt

Sirocki, however, pointed to a 2012 report from the Center for Disease Control, which found 500,000 victims of FGM in the US. Furthermore, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement found that 400 individuals have been arrested and 785 deported for FGM violations nationwide since 2003…

While FGM has been a crime federally since 1996, Maine is one of the highest-risk areas in the country for the practice, and Sirocki said that law enforcement needs to be able to try offenders on the state level.

“Federal prosecutors take a very small amount of cases,” Sirocki said. “The state of Maine deals with thousands of cases. If a situation would occur and this is the issue, if the federal government doesn’t have enough prosecutors, it doesn’t get prosecuted.” DailyCaller


ACLU Sues Catholic Charities

The ACLU is suing Catholic Charities, which receives mega millions in federal grants to resettle refugees and take care of unaccompanied align children flooding across our borders, will not provide abortion services and birth control to young refugees and immigrants.

Catholic Charities is dependent on millions from the taxpayers via immigration/refugee resettlement programs.  The amount of federal grants received by Catholic Charities is jaw dropping.

Many Catholic prelates in America are far left on the issue of immigration and open borders.

The U.S. Catholic bishops have several clear conflicts of interest on the subject of immigration, which completely negate their claim to the moral high ground. First, they are eager to refill the emptying pews in our parishes….

Second, the U.S. bishops collect tens of millions of dollars from taxpayer-funded programs to resettle those immigrants, which sluice through misnamed organizations like Catholic Charities, which in fact mostly act as federal contractors dispensing public money.  Breitbart

Does the ACLU think the Catholic agencies will cave in on their religious principles and choose the federal money over Catholic doctrine?

A California judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit this week that challenges federal funding of Catholic Charities because they refuse to provide young refugees and immigrants with abortions or birth control.

Courthouse News reports the American Civil Liberties Union sued the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) this summer to stop them from giving federal funding to Catholic organizations that do not promote abortions or birth control.

The federal government filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on grounds that the ACLU did not have standing to sue, but U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler denied the government’s motion on Tuesday and allowed the lawsuit to continue, according to the report.

“Congress mandated that the agency provide care to unaccompanied minors, and it authorized disbursements to provide that care,” Beeler wrote. “Because [HHS, through the Office of Refugee Resettlement] makes grants under that statutory mandate, the ACLU – through its taxpayer members – has standing.”

The lawsuit specifically mentions the case of 17-year-old “Rosa,” a immigrant who was raped by one of her guides and became pregnant on the way from Mexico to the U.S. According to the ACLU, Rosa was hospitalized to prevent her from committing suicide after Catholic Charities refused to help her abort her unborn child. She later got an abortion with the help of the refugee office, according to the report.

The ACLU argues that the government should not give money to the Catholic aid programs because the programs do not refer or provide abortions or birth control to young, unaccompanied minor refugees and immigrants like Rosa, the New York Times reports. In the lawsuit, it argues that the agencies are legally required to provide access to contraception and abortion because they receive government funding.  LifeNews

ACLU Director Quits After Elementary-Aged Daughters Express Fear At Men In The Women’s Restroom

maya-dillard-smithMaya Dillard Smith, Interim Director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union resigned after seeing how the bathroom law affected her elementary-aged daughters

Maya Dillard Smith has claimed she left the notoriously liberal ACLU after she found herself at odds with the organization’s recent shift toward promoting transgender equality above women’s rights.

Smith said in a statement that the ACLU had become a “special interest organization that promotes not all, but certain progressive rights.” Those rights that receive the most attention are the ones that receive the most funding from outside donors, she said.

But it was the experience of taking her elementary-aged school children into a public restroom that changed things. She said they entered the restroom and “shortly after three transgender young adults over six feet with deep voices entered.”

“My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many parents, was ill-prepared to answer,” Smith said.

“Despite additional learning I still have to do, I believe there are solutions that can provide accommodations for transgender people and balance the need to ensure women and girls are safe from those who might have malicious intent,” she said.

She added that she found herself “principally and philosophically unaligned with the organization [ACLU],” she said. Christian Examiner 

Maya has launched a new website, Finding Middle Ground.
