ICE detains critically ill girl after surgery
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?”
