Report: Whistleblower says ICE denied healthcare to migrants
HOUSTON (AP) - A whistleblower report provided to BuzzFeed News alleges U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has “systematically provided inadequate medical and mental health care” to detained migrants. That's led to complications that included the removal of part of an 8-year-old boy's forehead. The report renewed harsh criticism from migrant advocates and Democrats of President Donald Trump's immigration crackdown. The Trump administration has already been derided for reports of squalid conditions in packed cells and crying children left to fend for themselves after being taken from their parents.
