A Central American woman who sued the Trump administration on Tuesday for the safe return of her 12-year-old daughter told DailyMail.com that she let the girl go with border agents because she had seen officers physically abuse small children who resisted.
‘When they came to get my daughter at 3am, she was sleeping. I told her to go with them,’ Perla Karlili Alemengor Miranda De Velasquez said through a Spanish translator.
‘I didn’t want her to go, but I had seen officers grab little children who were three or four years old by their hair and throw them into cells when they tried to get back to their mothers. I didn’t want them to hurt my daughter.’
Miranda’s attorney confirmed the English translation and said his client would stand by that statement.
