Grieving mom whose daughter was raped and murdered by an MS-13 gang member files $100million lawsuit against the feds for lax policies - 'Nobody at the border did their job and checked his background' --The suit names DHS and DHHS as defendants, and demands the sum in damages | 21 Jan 2024 | A mourning mom whose daughter was raped and killed by an MS-13 gang member in 2022 has filed suit against feds alleging they failed to stop him at the border. The lawsuit names both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) as defendants, and demands $100million in damages. It was filed by Tammy Nobles and her attorney this week, roughly a year and a half removed from the incident in question. Allegedly occurring in July of 2020, it saw Nobles's daughter, 20-year-old Kayla Hamilton, strangled with a phone cord by the then 16-year-old suspect. The lawsuit alleges both agencies failed the woman by letting in the unnamed El Salvadoran, after not verifying his status with a phone call, and allowing him to be placed in a holding facility.
