The Daily Caller was able to debunk another piece of Propaganda from CNN that claimed that a breastfeeding mother was being held in ICE capacity separated from her daughter.
A CNN article told the story of Maria Domingo-Garcia, a mother of three of who was among the 680 illegal aliens apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) earlier in August. Domingo-Garcia was arrested while working at a Koch Foods in Morton, Mississippi, and is currently being held in a facility in Jena, Louisiana.
Titled “A breastfeeding mom is still being held in an ICE facility 12 days after being detained, attorneys say,” the article centered around Domingo-Garcia’s separation from her four-month-old daughter, and the subsequent pain of not being able to breastfeed anymore. CNN spoke to Domingo-Garcia’s attorneys, Juliana Manzanarez and Ybarra Maldonado, both whom claimed that she was still breastfeeding her baby at the time of her arrest.
“She is still really depressed. She is in a lot of pain because of not being able to pump or breastfeed,” Manzanarez said, describing the Domingo-Garcia’s physical pain after no longer nursing her baby.
The article included a statement from ICE that claimed Domingo-Garcia answered “no” when asked by an ICE official if she was breastfeeding. Her lawyers told CNN that statement was not true. “ICE is, once again, lying,” Maldonado said. “She said nobody’s asked her — not even one time — if she’s been breastfeeding.”
To no one’s shock, CNN was dead wrong.
In a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation, not only did ICE reiterate that Doming-Garcia said “no” when first asked if she was breastfeeding upon arrival at an ICE facility, but a spokesperson revealed that a subsequent medical examination found that she was not even lactating.
“All ICE detainees receive medical, dental and mental health intake screening within 12 hours of arriving at each detention facility; that screening includes a woman being asked if she is breast feeding. During her initial medical screening, Ms. Domingo-Garcia answered no to that question,” said ICE spokesman Bryan Cox.
“Pursuant to subsequent media reports that falsely alleged Ms. Domingo-Garcia was being detained despite being a nursing mother, an ICE Health Services Corps nurse practitioner conducted an additional medical examination of Ms. Domingo-Garcia, which verified she is not lactating,” Cox continued.

CNN also misidentified Domingo-Garcia’s nationality, according to ICE. The article describes her as being “originally from Guatemala,” but ICE identified her as a Mexican national living unlawfully in the U.S.
According to The Daily Caller, CNN is yet to respond to this new information. One thing is certain, CNN once again got caught trying to push anti-Trump propaganda. CNN didn’t want to cover the real news from the raid.
Like the fact that over 150 Americans applied for jobs after the illegal alien raid:
or the fact that most of them were black Americans.
Another day, another failure from CNN.
