Immigration Lawyer Tweets That a Child Died in ICE Custody, There's Just One Problem

Linkedin Share

An immigration attorney recently tweeted out that a child died while in ICE custody at a Texas Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility, however, the official statement is that this individual is lying through their teeth.

A lot of the fervor over this is due to the hot button issue of removing children from their parents if they are caught entering the country illegally. We’ve been hearing pretty much nonstop about that since the news broke. Funny enough, former President Obama was the one who started all this.

“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.

“Please note that the person who originally tweeted that later posted an update that retracted the original accusation,” ICE said to The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email Wednesday. “The updated accusation leaves little to no info that allows us to research.”

Yegani posted Wednesday that she was informed about the death through attorney Melissa Lynn, a friend of the victim’s family. Yegani also said that she was not in direct contact with the family.

“Last night a lawyer in Wash DC, posted on FB, seeking recommendations for a lawyer to represent a family whose child died AFTER her stay at Dilley Detention Cntr in TX,” Yegani tweeted. “I made the news public.I am in touch with Melissa-the lawyer, but have no confirmation from the victim’s family.”

People are looking for any reason they can find to do away with ICE and leave America wide open to an insane number of immigrants, including many with a criminal record who aren’t coming here to be productive members of society, but to cause trouble.

We need ICE to help protect us from these individuals, to be a buffer against the forces of evil.
