This is a horrible crime anywhere it happens. It has been prevalent in colleges and even in a Olympics sports.  But it’s not limited to immigration.

Former Team USA gymnasts describe doctor's alleged sexual abuse

From the previous article. That first sentence sounds like the same failing the Post Office had. They could not do the one job they were asked to do.

Editor's Note: "You had one job. You literally had one job, and you couldn't protect us!" Olympic gold medal gymnast Simone Biles told reporters earlier this week.

Biles, in Kansas City for the U.S. Gymnastics' Championship, said that USA Gymnastics failed to protect her and other athletes from Larry Nassar, the former team doctor. Nassar is now in prison serving time for numerous counts of sexual assault.

"It's not easy being out here," Biles said. "I feel every day is a reminder of what I went through."

60 Minutes first reported on the allegations against Nassar in February 2017, when three former gymnasts -- Jamie Dantzscher, Jessica Howard and Jeanette Antolin -- told correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook about the abuse they endured during Nassar's "treatments."

"I remember thinking something was off, but I didn't feel like I was able to say anything because he was, you know, this very high-profile doctor," Howard told LaPook.

Biles disclosed in 2018 that she too had been assaulted by Nassar.

Immigration has nothing to do with lousy doctors. They are all over the nation. Maybe they get a diploma with barely passing grades and "hide" with Immigration until they can get a better job?

Or maybe they are abusers and sex offenders who find a quiet place to practice.

Lot of education and expense to go thru just to abuse women.

I'm wondering about the hysterectomy aspect. Do the sexual abuse  cases you have put forth have unneeded hysterectomies classified as part of the sexual abuse?

I've been watching all day for more details, but it looks like there is much more to investigate before real answers are to be found.

An old restaurant owner friend once told me, in regard to types of clientele a restaurateur can attract, that it all depends on what kind of table you prepare for supper.

Our policies of separation of families could set the morality table for possible Josef Mengele thoughts in a doctor's moral compass. I don't understand what the sexual attraction would be for the doctor to perform  unneeded hysterectomies on the migrant women.

But having had to deal with people with serious bigoted attitudes earlier in my life, I totally understand the demented and dysfunctional rationalizations some people would make to justify such mutilating behavior on others. So are you saying mutilation is strictly a sexual abusive thing???.

I have known a couple of people that would say that it's just one less migrant that will show up at the border later on. But I don't get connecting demented  sexual stimulation to a unneeded hysterectomy. Does the sexual dysfunction of wanting to perform unneeded hysterectomies have an official diagnostic name?
