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:
She was prescribed honey packs and Tylenol.
She did not get better. 💔
ICE employees’ culture of neglect caused Mariee’s death.
President* Trump policies creating overcrowded detention camps caused Mariee’s death.
Just as his culture of neglect of migrants caused Jakelin’s death.
No amount will ever replace her precious girl, but DHS having to pay $60 million of our tax dollars will make an impression.
I hope more people pay attention. I hope more people care.
President* Trump’s lethal neglect is unlikely to change for two reasons:
🔹 Increased overcrowding because of unnecessary detention
🔹 Growing anger toward a vulnerable scapegoated population by Trumpists
MORE CHILDREN WILL DIE. 💔
On Friday ALL @OversightDems will hear testimony from Reps who visited our border.
DHS IG and HHS IG will testify about reports they filed on poor conditions in American Concentration Camps:
We unite for babies like Mariee. And for kids like Jakelin.
THIS FRIDAY, JULY 12:
🔹 VIGILS ACROSS THE WORLD FOR THE CHILDREN
🔹 711 locales on 5 continents

Mariee died of treatable illnesses, primarily influenza.
If she had been vaccinated, she might have lived.
On Aug 21 2019 — over a year after she died — President* Trump decided NOT to vaccinate ANY children in US custody.
