US sued for $60 million after infant in detention later died

Fox News

The mother of a toddler who died weeks after being released from the nation’s largest family detention center has filed a legal claim seeking $60 million from the U.S. government for the child’s death.

Attorneys for Yazmin Juarez submitted the claim against multiple agencies Tuesday. Juarez’s 1-year-old daughter, Mariee, died in May.  

Juarez’s lawyers say Mariee developed a respiratory illness while she and her mother were detained at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas. They accuse U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement of releasing the pair while Mariee was still sick.

The girl died six weeks later in Philadelphia.

Washington-based law firm Arnold & Porter says it will file a lawsuit if the government doesn’t settle its claim.

A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the agency wouldn’t comment on pending litigation. Other agencies didn’t immediately respond to messages.

  1. People in my area often wonder why so many illegals are in the cold northeast and they look at me in disbelief when I tell them they are transported further into the US interior and released into sanctuary cities. Filthadelphia is 30 miles south of me and Allentown is 25 miles north of me and there are major connecting highways between them, so everywhere between them is also littered with this invading garbage that has been facilitated by the united snakes govt.

    For YEARS, the billing in Philly hospitals has been deferred if you were a wetback. That is in print.

  2. As an enemy combatant, does she even have the right to sue?

    Oh…I forgot…she and her millions of co-invaders have ZERO RIGHTS IN THE US!! Case dismissed.
