Some U.S. detainees drugged for deportation


www.reuters.com

The U.S. government has injected hundreds of foreigners it has deported with dangerous psychotropic drugs against their will, The Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing medical records, internal documents and interviews with people who have been drugged.

The newspaper said it has identified 250 cases in which the government has, without medical reason, given drugs meant to treat serious psychiatric disorders to people it has shipped out of the United States since 2003.

This is disturbing on a number of levels. 'Psychotropic' drugs were used, the effects of which can be lethal, not to mention the blatant violation of human rights. How can these actions possibly be justified?

What are the long term effects to an individual who doesn't actually suffer from mental illness?

I would chalk this up as a test. Test for what?

I really don't even want to think about it. ICE is looking more and more ominous every day...

Hmm, that has been playing on my mind also. I'm surprised by the blatancy of it though, or was that the intention? This couldn’t possibly remain a secret for long.

Well call me paranoid but it could be that they are conditioning public perception to get people used to the idea of ICE agents drugging detainees. What better place to start than with a marginalized segment of the population where many will simply shrug it off as a non issue since it involves illegal immigrants.

If nothing else, it's great training for the new ICE troops.

According to ICE, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and “60 Minutes” have failed to provide balanced reporting -

An interesting fact here too -


Additionally, ICE operates detention centers throughout the United States that detain illegal immigrants who are apprehended and placed into removal proceedings. Engineering and construction firm Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) released a press statement on January 24, 2006 that the company had been awarded a no-bid contingency contract from the Department of Homeland Security to support its U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities in the event of an emergency. The maximum total value of the contract is $385 million and consists of a 1-year base period with four 1-year options. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000 through 2005
