During Tuesday night’s State of the Union address, Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan wore pins bearing the image of seven-year-old Jakelin Ameí Rosmery Caal Maquin, one of the two children to die while in federal immigration custody last December:

Eight-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo, who also died that same month, was buried just days ago. His sister recalled some of the last words he said to her: “When he left, he said: ‘I am a little young now, but when I arrive there, I am going to grow up, I will study and look for a job and I am going to send you money and buy clothes for my mom.’”  Remember Jakelin. Remember Felipe.
