CNN published an article titled 'A breastfeeding mom is still being held in an ICE facility 12 days after being detained, attorneys say.' A medical examination, however, says otherwise, claiming that the mother in question was not lactating at all.

The story surrounded an illegal alien, Maria Domingo-Garcia. The mother of three was detained by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, in a raid earlier in August. 

CNN's article focused on Domingo-Garcia’s separation from her four month old daughter, and the pain of not being able to breastfeed her child anymore. Juliana Manzanarez and Ybarra Maldonado, Domingo-Garcia’s attorneys both  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.

However, medical evidence claims that Domingo-Garcia may not be telling the truth. Bryan Cox, a spokesperson for ICE, revealed that a subsequent medical examination found that she was not even lactating in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

"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"

Cox continued:

"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" 

According to the Daily Caller, Domingo-Garcia was among the 680 apprehended on August 7th in an ICE raid targeting several food processing plants across Mississippi, the largest ICE raid in U.S. history. Of those arrested, 303 were released within 24 hours, mostly out of humanitarian concerns and other circumstances.

The agency suggested a nursing mother likely would not be kept in custody.
