ICE de­tains crit­i­cally ill girl after surgery

La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -

WASHAINGTON, DC -- The ar­rest and de­ten­tion of the 10-year old Rosa Maria Her­nan­dez in Texas last week has sparked na­tional out­rage, but un­for­tu­nately it’s not the only ex­am­ple of in­hu­man­ity on dis­play by Trump’s de­por­ta­tion force.

“Who could have pos­si­bly imag­ined that a 10year-old with dis­abil­i­ties be­ing rushed to a hos­pi­tal would be the tar­get of fed­eral en­force­ment?” the Wash­ing­ton Post asked in an editorial ti­tled, “Is This Who We Are?”. “The harm done ex­tends be­yond Rosa Maria and her fam­ily to other par­ents who now will have to think about the risk of de­ten­tion and de­por­ta­tion in de­cid­ing whether to seek med­i­cal treat­ment for their chil­dren. Is this re­ally the im­age the Border Pa­trol wants for it­self? Is this the im­age we Amer­i­cans want for our­selves?”
