ICE Deports Ethiopian Who Committed Female Genital Mutilation on His Daughter

“(CNSNews.com) — Ethiopian citizen Khalid Adem, 41, who was living in Georgia in 2006 when he was convicted of committing the federal crime of female genital mutiliation (FGM) of his own 2-year-old daughter using scissors, was deported to Ethiopia by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday, March 13. Adem, who was convicted in Gwinett County, Ga., had served 10 years in prison for his crime.

…Adem’s case is believed to be the first criminal conviction in the United States for female genital mutilation, and became the catalyst for the specific criminalization of female genital mutilation under Georgia state law.”
