FGM in USA

FGM in the USA was banned circa 1996. Yet, one thing I can't find is this:

Was that just to prevent people from doing it for religious/cultural reasons or were white American-boen females also getting it done?

Are there any stats regarding FGM in white, US-born women through the years.

I believe it was both, but I am not American so I can't be sure. I do know that it still goes on, illegal or not.

This may have something https://sites.google.com/site/completebaby/female But females are often circumcised for the same reason as boys are, a mistaken idea of cleanliness and health.

I just want to know if it was popular in the WASPy crowd...say those born in the 70s and 80s.

I'd imagine not??
