A Guatemalan toddler who died weeks after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border with her mother is at the center of a wrongful death claim that’s seeking $60 million from the federal government.

Mariee Juarez and mother Yazmin, who told ABC News she was fleeing an abusive situation at home, illegally crossed into the United States earlier this year, but they were detained and taken to a family detention center in Dilley, Texas, where all medical care is provided by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Health Services.

The article goes on to state the following:

Medical records obtained by ABC News amid an ongoing investigation of health care practices in immigration detention centers in partnership with the nonprofit criminal justice watchdog The Marshall Project show there was no indication Mariee was sick when she entered the facility, but she soon developed a respiratory infection that Yazmin says was inadequately treated for nearly two weeks.

    She has no right to file a lawsuit. She broke the law when she crossed the border ILLEGALLY! ILLEGALLY! ILLEGALLY! Doesn’t the lawyers and judges understand what that means? If she can sue why not all AMERICANS that have died due to medical care. Better think carefully before opening that can of worms.
