Immigrant mother whose child died in ICE custody plans suit

The toddler from Guatemala died six weeks after leaving an ICE family detention center in Dilley. She had not yet turned two years old

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.

He said his company would review the commission's written determination when it is issued and "assess our options at that time ".

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".

Tropical wave sets sight on Florida, but development is uncertain
Met Éireann, Ireland's national forecaster, do not issue long-range forecasts and therefore can not confirm the possible storm. The tropical wave over the central Atlantic Ocean that we've been watching all week is now centered near Hispaniola.

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.

The US State Department, however, indicated there would be no correction in response to Pakistan's complaint. Pakistan rejected the U.S. statement as incorrect, saying that the issue of terrorism was not discussed.

"What started with a cough and congestion and runny nose, turned into intermittent fevers... sometimes spiking as high as over 104 degrees", Jones said. But according to the claim, the nurse was not medically qualified to do so.
