Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Two More Immigrants Die in Immigration Detention

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has issued a pair of press releases announcing the deaths of two immigrants in immigration detention.


The first individual, Antonio Gomez-Hernandez, was a 66-year-old Mexican national.  Mr. Gomez-Hernandez died on November 5, 2010 at a Chicago area hospital from liver failure.  He had been in ICE custody since October 14, 2010.


The second individual, John Sterling, was 54-year-old Jamaican national that was being held by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) pending removal from the United States.  Mr. Sterling's death was caused by organ failure associated with T-cell lymphoma.  Mr. Sterling had been in ICE custody since Dec. 3, 2009.  It would be interesting to know whether he received proper medical treatment in the 11 months that he was held in ICE custody prior to his death, and whether his prolonged incarceration was a contributing factor.


My condolences go out to the families of these two individuals.
