Judge denies Detroit doctor's bail in alleged female genital mutilation case

A federal judge in Detroit denied bail to a female doctor who allegedly performed an illegal surgery to mutilate the genitals of two young girls from Minnesota.

From the Detroit Free Press:
The doctor insists it wasn't cutting. But the judge wasn't convinced and locked her up.

In a historic female genital mutilation case that has planted a bull's-eye on what prosecutors are calling an "incredibly secretive" religious ritual, a federal magistrate on Monday denied bond to an Indian-Muslim doctor accused of mutilating the genitals of two Minnesota girls at a Livonia medical clinic.

The decision to lock up Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, came after federal prosecutors called her a flight risk and a danger to the community, saying she has hurt numerous girls for years, knowing it was wrong, and even ignored a 2016 directive by her religious community not to engage in female genital mutilation because it's illegal in the U.S.
As for this barbarity--where is the outrage from the angry left that accuses President Donald J. Trump of being a misogynist?

The Judge needs to really drop the hammer on this "Doctor"... Take her license, imprison her, and when she gets out, deport her straight from the prison!
