This is horrific and unacceptable. What else is happening—or not happening that should be happening like basic care—in these detention centers? Transparency and accountability is a MUST or more children will die!
Update 3:33pm, Aug. 1, 2018 Eastern: HillReporter has just learned, via the Washington Post, that the The American Immigration Lawyers Association has confirmed that a child did in fact die shortly after being released from the ICE detention center in Dilley, Texas. This is what AILA had to say:
“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 for the 15,000-member association, said in a statement. “We do not have information on the cause of death or information that confirms a connection between medical treatment at STFRC and this death.”
