Mother Suing Biden Administration After Daughter Allegedly Killed By MS-13
Tammy Nobles has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the Biden administration after her daughter was allegedly murdered by a member of the infamously violent MS-13 gang.
In the lawsuit filed last week, Nobles accused the Biden administration of playing “Russian roulette with our lives” because of his dangerous open-border policies.
The lawsuit specifically accused President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) of failing to prevent the teenage El Salvadoran gang member who allegedly murdered Nobles’ autistic daughter, 20-year-old Kayla Hamilton, from entering the United States.
“Nobody at the border did their job and checked his background,” Nobles told NewsNation.
Hamilton was found strangled to death with a phone cord on July 27, 2022, in her trailer home in Frederick, Maryland, according to police.
The suspect, a 17-year-old illegal alien, had run away from a holding facility and ended up becoming Hamilton’s roommate in the trailer home.
“He ends up in this trailer home as a roommate with lovely Kayla, that was leased out by another illegal immigrant,” Brian Claypool, the family’s attorney, explained to NewsNation.
The lawsuit accuses HHS of numerous failures, including allowing the suspect to be in the holding facility in the first place, not verifying the identity of the illegal alien with a phone call and not confirming a verified sponsor for him. According to Claypool, the illegal alien suspect had a clearly-visible gang tattoo that should have prevented him from being allowed to enter the U.S. at all.
The teenage suspect was finally arrested roughly six months after Hamilton’s murder when authorities compared his DNA to material found at the crime scene. His trial will begin on June 28 for several charges, including first-degree murder and robbery.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has since confirmed that the suspect was listed as a member of MS-13.
“We’re bringing this lawsuit because we’re tired of being held hostage in our own country. We’re tired of DHS playing Russian roulette with our lives,” the family’s attorney told NewsNation.
Meanwhile, Nobles has also testified before the House Homeland Security Committee as part of an impeachment inquiry into DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas — telling lawmakers on Thursday that “this is not a political issue, this a safety issue for everyone living in the United States.”
“I want everyone to know what’s going on at the border,” Nobles added, explaining that she had “no clue” how bad the border crisis was until her daughter was killed.
“All they had to do was make one phone call to El Salvador to know that he was an MS-13 gang member on the list,” she explained.
