ICE Releases 15 Babies from Texas Immigration Jail

HeadlineMar 05, 2019

Fifteen infants were released with their mothers from an immigration jail in Dilley, Texas, Monday, days after legal advocates filed a complaint with the Department of Homeland Security. One baby was as young as 5 months old. Usually children under the age of 1 are released at the border with their parents. All of the mothers with infants who were identified by the Dilley Pro Bono Project said their children were sick in some way. The jail is run by private prison company CoreCivic and has a history of allegations of medical neglect. At least two more infants are believed to still be held in what critics have long called a “baby jail.”
