Default illegal immigrants sue ICE for posttraumatic stress disorder

read it and weep for our country:

http://www.firstcoastnews.com/news/f...1&provider=rss

A doctor hired by their families diagnosed them and prescribed several medications to treat each man's insomnia, depression, anxiety and psychotic episodes. However, an officer at the center told Miranda and Padilha's attorney that the men had not been given the drugs and would need to be moved to another facility to receive treatment, the lawsuits state.

Miranda and Padilha are seeking release or transfer to a facility that can provide mental health treatment, in addition to damages for pain and suffering.

I agree. They were diagnosed by a doctor fired by the families. Sounds fishy to me.

Not sure about this one. Brazil today is no longer a military state. Not sure what torture and persecution they are concerned about. I think they should be granted the special visa if the criminals are caught and as a result prevents further exploitation of others.

Quote:
Each also seeks asylum to escape torture and persecution in Brazil, where they say they would not have access to psychological services if deported. Both men say they are eligible for a special visa granted to victims of certain crimes who cooperate with investigators because they provided U.S. law enforcement with names and details about the trafficking operation that brought them from the Dominican Republic to Florida.
