Welcome to a THREAD OF IMMIGRANT THREADS.

Remember Judge Sabraw’s words on President* Trump forcibly separating families:

"The hallmark of a civilized society is measured by how it treats its people and those within its borders.”

2/ On Aug 21, 2019, President* Trump decided NOT to vaccinate ANY of the children or families in U.S. custody.



THREAD explaining why President* Trump jailing so many people in cages could cause an epidemic:

When this baby was in a cage, she caught a disease that killed her.

HER DEATH WAS PREVENTABLE.

This is Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez.

Just 16 years old when he entered the US alone, on May 13, 2019.

He was a healthy child.

An optimistic child.

He was alone when he died 7 days later in a Border Patrol Station in Texas.

Carlos is the most recent of the #TrumpSeven.
2/ Carlos had 8 younger siblings who called him Goyito.

He loved playing soccer and music, especially piano and bass.

Carlos came to US to help support his brother Edgar who has special needs.

When he arrived in Rio Grande Valley (RGV), he was healthy.

3/ Children like Carlos are supposed to be in Border Patrol custody for 3 days or less.

Carlos spent SIX DAYS in McAllen BPS — without reason — instead of transferring to ORR custody.

Carlos (from Guatemala) was caged with people from Honduras, El Salvador, Brazil, Nicaragua…

1/ Mariee Juárez was only 21 months old when she died after being held in Dilley Family Detention Center in Texas.

She was a healthy child.

A happy child.

She and her mother fled the violence of Guatemala.

Mariee died on US soil, of medical neglect.

First of the #TrumpSeven:
2/ Mariee at 19mos and her mom entered the US along our Mexico border on March 1 2018, and were transferred to Dilley FOUR days later…

Not THREE as legally mandated.

They were put in a cell with 5 other mothers and their kids, some of whom were sick. Especially one little boy.
3/ By March 11, 2018 — under a week after being imprisoned in a Dilley camp cell — Mariee had an “acute upper respiratory infection,” diagnosed by a physician’s assistant at Dilley.

She was prescribed honey packs and Tylenol.

She did not get better. 💔
