MIAMI -- Two Brazilian migrants have sued U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying they've been denied mental health care for post-traumatic stress disorder in a South Florida detention facility since their boat ran aground last fall.
Jaime Miranda and Daniel Padilha were diagnosed with the disorder by a private physician in December but have not been given prescribed medications or treatments while being held at the Broward Transition Center in Pompano Beach, according to lawsuits filed Wednesday in Miami federal court.
Their confinement without medical care has aggravated their mental health problems, violates their Fifth Amendment rights and mirrors persecution in Brazil that they sought to escape, the lawsuits state.

They were already nuts when they got here. I doubt that any of us would have any rights if we illegally invaded Brazil. The insanity continues . . . .

It "violates their Fifth Amendment". Our government is so, sooo stupid.

They truly are stupid aren't they? There is not another country on the planet that would allow this to happen. Only in America . . .
