Advocate worries about sick immigrants in Artesia

ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) – One advocate who visited the facility in Artesia says some children are sick and they may not be getting proper care.

Tannia Esparza, the executive director of Young Women United, told the Associated Press that the Central American women she spoke with say that kids with coughs and other ailments aren’t receiving any medical care.

She also says pregnant women are often singled out for swift deportation many times without seeing a lawyer.
