Many mothers detained at border stations have complained that their children’s health become worse while they were in Customs and Border Protection custody. The information comes from a 13-question survey of 200 women in June and July that was handled by a nonprofit in Texas. The questionnaire specifically gave voice to complaints that children were not being seen by medical professionals, even with vomiting, fever, or diarrhea. Lawyers for the nonprofit have asked the DHS to look into this issue.
