First of all, if you’re talking about detention centers for illegal entry, it’s not an ICE facility. It’s either Border Patrol or a facility under the auspices of HHS. And second, no one died. How do they run stories like this with absolutely no information or confirmation?
Via Daily Caller:
An immigration lawyer tweeted that a child allegedly died in a Texas Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility, but officials said those claims were false Wednesday.
“There are reports that a child died in ICE custody in Dilley, Texas,” Houston immigration lawyer Mana Yegani tweeted Tuesday, according to Heavy. “Getting more information as the story develops. It’s unclear where the parent(s) of the child is. Some reports indicate that they maybe in New Jersey while child was in Texas.”
Yegani updated the tweet a few hours later and claimed the child died.
“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,” the second tweet said.
