Claim involves death of child after stay in detention centre

Yazmin Juarez claims her daughter Mariee died after getting sick in ICE custody

Yazmin Juarez claims her daughter Mariee died after getting sick in ICE custody

"Mariee Juarez entered Dilley a healthy baby girl and 20 days later was discharged a gravely ill child with a life-threatening respiratory infection".

Twenty-yer-old Yazmine Juarez and her daughter Mariee were detained at an ICE facility in Dilley back in March after arriving in the USA from Guatemala. The baby's health improved, but then worsened until she and her mother were released.

The claim accuses medical staff of failing to provide Mariee Juarez with adequate care after the girl became sick inside the Texas facility. Ten days after they arrived, Mariee had lost two pounds (almost 1 kilogram), nearly 8 percent of her body weight.

The Arnold & Porter law firm said this notice filed on behalf of Yazmin Juarez is "the first of several notices targeting multiple organizations that have responsibility for operating and managing the Dilley facility".

They were released March 25, and took a flight to New Jersey, where Juarez's mother lives. The next day they went to the emergency room.

May 10, the baby was bleeding, which led to irreversible brain damage and organs.

Donald Trump threatens to pull USA out of WTO
The one creating the most interest is the one with China, as the world's two largest economies wrangle for global influence. For all of his complaints about the WTO, Trump's administration has continued to file cases against other members.

The child has been identified in the complaint as Mariee Juarez. Citing hospital records, Vice News reported that Maria died from viral pneumonia - inflammation of lung tissue. The committee chairman asked Whitman to address allegations that a child died shortly after leaving the Dilley facility. Initial reports that the child died at Dilley were erroneous. The pair were apprehended at the border and temporarily detained at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas four days later.

A Guatemalan mother, who says her baby died after falling ill in a Texas immigration facility, is now planning to sue the US government.

"The medical care that Mariee received inside Dilley was woefully inadequate, neglectful and substandard", Jones said. The story says all five doctors believed Mariee's "recommended course of treatment would have been the same had she not been in ICE custody".

"It's reasonable care", said Dr. Ewen Wang, associate director of pediatric emergency medicine at Stanford University Medical Center. Her asylum case is pending.

Officials in Texas say they are investigating the case, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials did not respond to specific allegations made by Juarez and her lawyers.
