Illegal Immigrant Mother Sues U.S. Government For $60 Million Over Child Death

6

The mother of a toddler who died weeks after being released from the nation’s largest family detention center filed a legal claim seeking $60 million from the U.S. government for the child’s death.

Attorneys for Yazmin Juarez submitted the claim against multiple agencies Tuesday. Juarez’s 1-year-old daughter, Mariee, died in May.

Juarez’s lawyers said Mariee developed a respiratory illness while she and her mother were detained at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas. They accused U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of releasing the pair while Mariee was still sick.

The girl died six weeks later in Philadelphia.

  1. CNN gives the timeline as asking for medical assistance 6 days after arriving. Medication was administered but allegedly did not help. Two weeks later they were released and went into a hospital for six weeks and then died.

    And who do I blame? I blame those media which made such a fuss about the separation of child and parent that it now became impossible for ICE to take the child to a hospital for fear of being accused of separating them.
