What is the U.S. coming to: 10-Year-Old Immigrant Is Detained After Agents Stop Her on Way to Surgery


The New York Times reports that a 10-year-old girl with cerebral palsy has been detained by federal immigration authorities in Texas after she passed through a Border Patrol checkpoint on her way to a hospital to undergo emergency gall bladder surgery. The girl, Rosamaria Hernandez, who was brought to the United States without documentation to live in Laredo, Texas, when she was three months old, was being transferred from a medical center in Laredo to a hospital in Corpus Christi around 2:00 am on Tuesday when Border Patrol agents stopped the ambulance she was riding in. The agents allowed her to continue to hospital but followed the ambulance the rest of the way there, then waited outside her room until she was released from the hospital.
