Lawsuit Over Migrant Toddler’s Death

First reported by Abcnews.go.com

Summary:

  • A Guatemalan mother is suing the federal government for $60 million after her young daughter died while in ICE custody.
  • Yazmin Juarez and her daughter Mariee were detained for 20 days after illegally crossing the border earlier this year.  
  • Yazmin says her daughter became sick while in ICE custody and didn’t receive proper medical attention.  The toddler ended up dying several weeks later at a hospital.
  • Now attorneys have filed a $60 million lawsuit claiming the medical care for Mariee was “woefully inadequate, neglectful, and substandard”.

Questions:

  • Do you think detained migrants are being handled safely and fairly by ICE?
