ICE Refused Claim That A Migrant Kid Expired At A Texas Detention Facility
On Wednesday, the federal authorities opposed the claim made by Mana Yegani, an immigration lawyer from Houston. She claimed that a migrant kid had died in custody at a detention facility in Texas.
Officials from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) stated in an email that no kid died while in the South Texas Family Residential Center, Dilley. The email stated that rumors of a kid died in ICE custody at Dilley are not true. Not a single kid or any adult ever has died at an ICE family residential center.
ICE asserted that it was looking into information that a girl died after being discharged from custody. However, no supplementary data for the verification of the same was found. Yegani, in a recently-removed tweet, posted on Tuesday night that a report informed a case of a child death in ICE custody. She also noted that there was no data available about parents of this kid.
However, the lawyer later updated that the kid was dead after being unrestrained. She also proclaimed that the casualty was an outcome of conditions at the facility. Yegani posted that the girl child expired after her stay at an ICE Detention Center. She asserted that it was an outcome of probable carelessness as well as a respiratory disease, which she had received as an infection from one of the other children in the Detention Center.
On a similar note, recently, Dolly Gee, the U.S. District Judge, ordered the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement to shift immigrant children from the Shiloh Treatment Center, which is situated between Manvel and Pearland. Gee asked to shift these migrant kids into less restraining housing except an approved psychiatrist or psychologist concludes that any of the kids are at a danger of injuring to self or others.
