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

The complaint was reportedly sent to the City of Eloy, which serves as the government's "prime contractor" operating the Dilley facility.

Juarez is claiming $ 40 million in compensation, according to Time.

The City of Eloy did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

Air Canada says mobile app breach may affect up to 20000 customers
App users are being asked to follow the email instructions in order to reactivate their Air Canada mobile account. Mobile app users received an email Wednesday morning alerting them as to whether their account had been affected.

According to the complaint, Mariee was a healthy, joyful child when examined for the first time by the medical staff of the center. She sought asylum and the two ended up at the Texas facility, for nearly three weeks, according to the law firm.

At the facility, Mariee became increasingly ill, according to a timeline of events released by the lawyers.

The mother turns against all those involved, denouncing that "those responsible for providing safe hygiene conditions and adequate medical care failed in the case of this girl and led to a painful death".

Astronauts repairing air leak on International Space Station
Mission control told Gerst that they were seeing a slow pressure decay of around 0.6 millimeters of mercury per hour. News 6 digital journalist Emilee Speck spoke to Harwood about the leak on the ISS and other recent space news.

Three days before Mother's Day, instead of bringing her daughter home, Juarez left a New Jersey hospital with only an ink print of Mariee's right hand. She died on May 10 after being treated in two hospitals for progressive respiratory failure, according to the notice. Yasmin's law firm, Arnold and Porter, alleges that she made a determination that was not within the scope of her vocational nurse's license. "We will do everything we can to ensure nothing like this ever happens again". That investigation remains open and there is no estimated date for its completion, said Patrick Crimmins, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.

"Comprehensive medical care is provided to all individuals in ICE custody", the agency 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".

Juarez's lawyer says the child got inadequate medical care. "Mariee died just months before her second birthday because ICE, the City of Eloy and others charged with her medical care neglected to provide the most basic standard of care as her condition rapidly deteriorated, and her mother Yazmin pleaded for help". The toddler was prescribed Tylenol after a diagnosis of acute upper respiratory infection.
