“An undocumented 10-year-old girl was intercepted by federal immigration officers in Texas as she and a family member were in an ambulance being transferred between two hospitals so that she could receive emergency gall bladder surgery. Rosamaria Hernandez — who has cerebral palsy and was brought to the United States illegally [sic] from Mexico when she was just 3 months old — was with her cousin around 2 a.m. Tuesday traveling in an ambulance from a center in Laredo, Texas, to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi when Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers stopped the vehicle at a checkpoint, according to her family …. the officers allowed the ambulance to proceed, but followed it to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi. When the surgery was over, they [abducted] the girl.” (10/26/17)
