Minor flees immigration detention in another state

Many Louisiana immigrants are currently trying to rectify situations that have led to their own or their loved ones' detainments.

A troubling incident occurred recently in another state, involving a teenage girl who reportedly fled ICE custody.  

Immigration detention situation has father of 3 quite worried

As many Louisiana immigrants may attest, thousands of people come to the United States when they are unable to find jobs in their countries of origin.

Sadly, she suffered a miscarriage in an immigration detention center, which she says happened because officials denied her request for emergency medical attention.
