As stated by article “the 6-foot, 2 inch, 250-pound immigration detainee told the judge he was consistently “dragged” off his wheelchair and carried onto a non-wheelchair accessible vehicle by three Immigration and Customs Enforcement guards. His arms and sides bore the bruises of being “yanked and grappled” so many times.”

“The 33-year-old epileptic man’s lawsuit claims he became immobile after having a seizure in September 2019 while going down the stairs at Krome, the ICE detention center in Miami-Dade County. Mugaburu said he “tumbled” down the staircase, lost consciousness and severely hurt his leg after ICE “denied” him his required epilepsy medications.”
