1/ A Honduran woman’s pregnancy ended in a stillbirth at an ICE detention center in South Texas last week.

Officials said DHS doesn’t count stillbirths as in-custody deaths — which drew condemnation from many. wapo.st/2EA4adH via @washingtonpost
2/ The woman, a migrant from Honduras, was arrested near Hidalgo on Feb. 18.

She was six months pregnant at the time.

Four days later, she went into labor and delivered a premature and unresponsive baby boy. wapo.st/2EA4adH
3/3 The stillbirth follows the February death of a 45-year-old Mexican national in McAllen and the December deaths of two detained migrant children, which led the CBP chief to commit to conducting health checks on all minors in the agency’s custody. wapo.st/2EA4adH
