ACLU To Feds: Release 10-Year-Old With Cerebral Palsy Or We’ll Sue
[Source: Disability Scoop]
The American Civil Liberties Union said it will sue Customs and Border Patrol by Tuesday afternoon if it doesn’t release a 10-year-old undocumented girl suffering from cerebral palsy.
Rosa Maria Hernandez was taken into custody last week after she was stopped on her way to get gallbladder surgery in Corpus Christi, Texas, accompanied by a cousin.
Border Patrol agents stood guard while she recovered from the surgery at Driscoll Children’s Hospital.
