And a woman describing how children are separated then can not be found later

The separation of parents and children in detention is so prevalent that Murzda has heard about cases where a mother goes to take a shower and comes back to find her child is gone, the lawyer said. Murdza is no longer directly involved with Jessica's immigration case, she said.

During Jessica's time in detention, one mother from Guatemala had been separated from her son for seven days, one Honduran woman was unable to find her son, and when another mother from El Salvador was taken to see her daughter, they were unable to find the child, Jessica said.

By the time Jessica left the detention center, the children still hadn't been located she said, describing the separations as "inhumane."
In addition, the officers allegedly threw the detainees' food on the floor "as if we were dogs," Jessica stated in the declaration.

"The only food that they gave us was ham sandwiches and cookies," she said. "Some of the women were pregnant and fainted because of how crowded it was, the stress, and because there was not enough food and water."
