Former ICE Director on Immigration Battle Over Ailing Girl: “It’s Just Not Right”

10/30/17 “It’s inexplicable to me that our government would have its agents conduct this action,” he said. “Those agents should be out on the line stopping drugs, stopping gang members, protecting national security, not doing this to a 10-year-old girl who has just come out of surgery and has other medical issues.”
Hernandez’s family members said she has the mental capacity of a 5-year-old.
Hernandez has cousins who are U.S. citizens but she is not being released to them. Instead she was taken from the hospital to a government-licensed shelter in San Antonio.
