Border Patrol seizing children's medication leads to demand for probe

Rep. Kim Schrier, D-Wash., is calling for an investigation into allegations that U.S. Border Patrol agents have been confiscating medications from children and adults taken into custody, a practice described in a Yahoo News report this week.

Schrier, who is also a pediatrician, cited the Yahoo News report in a letter to the acting inspectors general for the Departments of Health and Human Services and Homeland Security on Wednesday. She requested urgent investigations into the medical care of migrant children detained at the border.

“As a doctor and person living with Type 1 diabetes, I am well aware of the deadly consequences of untreated diabetes and was particularly troubled to read of a 15-year-old who arrived in a shelter from custody in diabetic ketoacidosis,” wrote Schrier. The case, which was described to Yahoo News by a physician who treated the teenager, was one of several involving children who reported that their medication for conditions including diabetes and seizures, had been confiscated and neither returned nor replaced.

“Withholding life-saving medications is cruel and creates deadly conditions,” Schrier wrote.
