PREGNANT WOMAN DIES IN ICE DETENTION CENTER

Rate this Entry

Rosa Contreras Dominguez, a pregnant woman facing deportation, died yesterday at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in El Paso, Texas. Dominguez, a permanent resident facing deportation for importing marijuana, had been complaining about a pain behind her right knee.



I think its really too early to say whether ICE did anything wrong here (hence, my not calling this an "outrage of the day"), though the family is requesting an autopsy to better understand what happened. And there have been numerous complaints in recent years about the medical care offered to those in ICE detention centers. So it is obviously important to learn what happened.

    This was a double murder and one of those killed was most likely an American!! ICE sounds just like Guantanamo..
