Release 5 Month Pregnant Mother: Sugey!

ICE is at it again. Just moths ago ICE told Fusion they "don’t detain pregnant women, unless they are a threat to public safety or meet the requirements for mandatory detention." Now, Sugey, a 5 month pregnant mother, is being held at the Otay Detention Center. Sugey reports 5 other pregnant mothers are also being held.

Since turning herself in on March 18th, Sugey reports losing 3lbs, and not receiving any pre-natal medical care. Sugey, worried about her health and that of her unborn child, is ready to sign her deportation.

ICE has a policy on releasing pregnant women, Sugey's detention is a CLEAR violation of policy.

"Hi, I was calling to find out if the member was going to do anything about the 5 month pregnant mother, Sugey, currently in ICE detention in San Diego? Sugey has lost 3lbs in 7 days, and is not receiving any medical care. I know ICE says they have a policy against detaining pregnant women, will the member take action to help Sugey?"

ICE is clearly not following the rules; we need these members to help Sugey get out.

The Petition

To President Obama, and Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson:

I write to ask for the immediate release of Sugey Carrazco, 27. Sugey is a member of the #reform150, a group of families, living in exile, who presented themselves the week of March 10th, asking for permission to come home, to the United States. Sugey is currently 5 months pregnant, she is being detained at the Otay Detention Center, despite ICE having a national policy against the detention of pregnant women. We ask for Sugey’s immediate release, and the release of the 5 other pregnant women she’s identified inside the Otay facility.

Sugey first came to the U.S. at the age of 5, she lived in San Diego, California for three years, after which her family moved to Oregon. Sugey attended Klamath Union High School, she dropped out in 2004, however received her GED in 2005. Sugey has two U.S. Citizen children; Haziel, 8, and Axel, 5, who was also born with a brain deficiency. Doctors in the U.S. ordered that he have yearly brain scans, so they can better diagnose him. Sugey is now 5 months pregnant, with her third child, she fears for her child’s wellbeing, especially given the fact that doctors have yet to understand Axel’s medical condition.

Sugey left to Mexico in 2010, she felt she had to leave because of a number of reasons. Sugey’s grandmother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and at home, her partner was abusive. Sugey thought she could go to Mexico, to flee the violence at home, and also aid her dying grandmother. In Mexico, Sugey learned her son would not be able to get any medical care, for the three years she’s been there Axel has never had a medical check-up. To make matters worse, her abusive partner also returned to Mexico, to find her.

In an interview to Fusion last year ICE spokesperson Nicole Navas said they "don’t detain pregnant women, unless they are a threat to public safety or meet the requirements for mandatory detention."

This shows that ICE has a clear directive against the detention of pregnant women. Since Sugey has been detained, March 18th, she reports losing 3lbs. Sugey reports finding 5 other pregnant women detained at the Otay Detention Center, with none of them receiving any sort of pre-natal care. Sugey’s detention is detrimental to her own health, and that of her unborn child.

We ask for the immediate release of Sugey Carrazco, and all other pregnant women held at the Otay Detention Center.
