How Biden's Border Crisis Contributed to Another In-Custody Death

Whenever there is overcrowding at Border Patrol facilities, there are many things that can go wrong. The most recent example of this is the death of 8-year-old Anadith Danay Reyes Álvarez, a Panamanian, who died from sickness after being in a processing site with her family for a longer period of time than what is supposed to be the standard 72 hours.

Because of the change in immigration policies by the Biden administration, family units and unaccompanied minors have mostly been the ones who cross the U.S.-Mexico border to hand themselves in to Border Patrol so they can be processed and released into the United States while pursing claims of asylum. This has led to facilities at border to be chronically overcapacity.

The New York Times reported Anadith and her family crossed into Brownsville, Texas, on May 9 with other illegal immigrants, right before Title 42 was about to expire. Anadith had suffered from a heart condition and had sickle cell anemia, which her family made aware to medical personnel when they were sent to the Border Patrol facility in Donna, Texas:
