Mother Sues Biden Admin In $100M MS-13 Case

In a new lawsuit that underscores the ongoing debate over the U.S. immigration system, Tammy Nobles has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the Biden administration, seeking to hold it responsible for her daughter’s tragic death. Kayla Hamilton, Nobles’ 20-year-old autistic daughter, was allegedly assaulted and murdered by a member of the notorious MS-13 gang, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador.

Nobles, in her emotional testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee, claimed that the Biden administration’s lax border policies directly contributed to this horrific incident. Her words resonate with a growing concern among Americans about the safety implications of these policies. “For me, this is not a political issue, this is a safety issue for everyone living in the United States,” Nobles stated, her voice echoing the fears of many who feel endangered by what they perceive as an open-border approach.

The lawsuit, aimed at the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services, alleges that these agencies failed in their duty to protect U.S. citizens by allowing the gang member to enter the country unchecked. “Nobody at the border did their job and checked his background,” Nobles told NewsNation, highlighting a failure in the system that has become a focal point of criticism for those advocating for stricter immigration policies.

The suspect, a 17-year-old Salvadoran, had a gang-related tattoo visible enough to raise alarms. Yet, he was allowed entry into the United States. This oversight is seen by many as a glaring example of the dangers posed by what is often referred to as the Biden administration’s disastrous open-borders policy. In a May report, the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee echoed this sentiment, stating, “The Biden Administration’s open-borders policies have created vulnerabilities… to the detriment of American citizens.”

Kayla was found strangled with a phone cord in her Maryland trailer home, a residence she shared with the suspect, who had sublet the trailer from another undocumented migrant. The arrest of the suspect six months after the murder, while a step toward justice, does little to alleviate the pain of a grieving mother or quell the fears of a nation concerned about its security.

The case has become a rallying cry for those demanding accountability and immigration policy changes. Brian Claypool, the family’s attorney, passionately argues for the necessity of this lawsuit. “We’re bringing this lawsuit because we’re tired of being held hostage in our own country,” he said, accusing the DHS of “playing Russian roulette with our lives.”

In a statement, a representative for the DHS expressed condolences but refrained from commenting on the pending litigation. Similarly, a spokesperson for the HHS conveyed sadness over the tragic loss. However, these statements do little to quell the growing demand for a reassessment of the immigration policies under the Biden administration.
