WASHINGTON--Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20), Chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Vice Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and member of the House Intelligence and Education and Labor Committees, and Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-07), today introduced the Jakelin Caal Death in Custody Reporting Act of 2019, a bill demanding that the Department of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services report on and investigate all deaths that occur in government custody, such as the death of Jakelin Caal Maquin. Maquin died at 7 years old in CBP from dehydration and exhaustion on December 8, 2018. As of today, Congress has yet to receive any of the information that was requested on her death. Congress requires CBP to report the death of any individual in their custody within 24 hours including relevant details regarding the circumstances of the fatality. ICE is similarly required to report any in-custody death within 30 days. However, HHS has no such requirement, despite their care of thousands of migrant children every year.
