Horrible. Just horrible. This is NOT going to go well.


A child has reportedly died in ICE detention, an immigration lawyer named Mana Yegani claimed in a series of tweets on the evening of July 31, 2018.

She later provided an updated tweet, writing, “Update: The child died following her stay at an ICE Detention Center, as a result of possible negligent care and a respiratory illness she contracted from one of the other children. The events took place in Dilley Family Detention Center in south Texas.”

More Immigrants Died in Detention in Fiscal Year 2017 Than in Any Year Since 2009


A new report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) traces over the past several years a devastating trail of epitaphs dotting the vast system of immigrant detention—a burgeoning network of facilities ranging from federal prisons to private commercial detention centers to tent cities in the desert. The official records generally list nondescript reasons for death, such as “cardiac arrest.” But ICE’s opaque bureaucracy masks a metastasizing crisis: Researchers note the growing frequency and patterns of neglect displayed in many of the death cases as warning signs that went ignored.



In fiscal year 2017, according to federal statistics, 12 detainees died on Homeland Security’s watch, a record number since 2009 and double the death rate of four years ago.

As the Trump administration dramatically expands the deportation regime, the government insists that mass detention of people who have committed no “crime” other than border crossing is necessary for maintaining law and order (although there is actually no federal code that mandates mass detention), or that it must “teach migrants a lesson” (though there is scant evidence that refugees have been deterred from fleeing for their lives).

Congress is holding hearings. Lets hope they can get some answers to all these messes.

The Trump administration. A spaghetti bowl cluster fuck

You realize none of THEM give a shit. Their parents brought them here illegally, if they die, they die!

And OF COURSE they won't try to figure it out. They DON'T KNOW and they sure as hell DON'T WANT TO KNOW!

How many are coming here with serious health issues? Are we supposed to treat all? What's happening in their own country isn't a stain? Their country sucks so now it's our fault and we are on the hook for many thousands.

Jacobfitcher,

You do realize your link says "no child died in detention and any claims that they did are false," right?

Just an insane remark.

They could remain where they came from, or seek asylum in Mexico. Many wind up dying on the journey too.

I note that far more Americans are killed by illegals, yet the left makes light of that, even mocking it when the subject is raised.

Many come here on that journey in very bad health, seeking free medical treatment for serious conditions.

Oh that's good, then. As long as they were off the property when the respiratory illness took it's toll, ICE is in the clear.
