The Hill reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a top Democratic presidential candidate, criticized the Trump administration and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in a Christmas day tweet over the “cruel treatment” of migrants.
Warren referenced in her tweet the death of Felipe Gómez Alonzo, an 8-year-old migrant who died on Christmas Eve last year.
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) internal watchdog absolved immigration officials of any misconduct or wrongdoing related to Felipe’s death in a statement released last week.
One year ago today, Felipe Gómez Alonzo died in CBP custody. He was just eight years old.
This Christmas, I’m heartsick for all of the families who won’t be celebrating together today because of the Trump administration’s cruel treatment of immigrants and asylum-seekers.
