Migrant Toddler Dies After ICE Detention

Migrant toddler died after release from ICE detention. ThinkProgress: “The American Immigration Lawyers Association confirmed reports on Wednesday that a migrant child died after being released from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Dilley, Texas. ‘AILA has learned that a toddler died soon after release from the Dilley South Texas Family Residential Center,”’ Gregory Z. Chen, director of government relations, said in a statement, according to The Washington Post. ‘We do not have information on the cause of death or information that confirms a connection between medical treatment at STFRC and this death.’ The allegations first surfaced Tuesday evening, when Houston-based immigration lawyer Mana Yegani tweeted that a child died ‘as a result of possible negligent care and a respiratory illness she contracted from one of the other children.'”
