Consul: Woman who delivered stillborn baby released by ICE

A Honduran government official says a woman who delivered a stillborn baby while in custody last week has been released from detention. 

Ana Bulnes Larios, the Honduran consul based in McAllen, Texas, says she had spoken to the 24-year-old woman. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the woman was released Tuesday. 

ICE said Monday that the woman went into premature labor on Feb. 22, shortly after complaining of abdominal pain at the Port Isabel Detention Center in South Texas, where the agency had been processing her for release.

The consul said Thursday that the woman is now with relatives in the U.S.
