Three Portuguese women were taken into ICE custody in Rhode Island in connection with the death of a 1-year old baby.

According to police, the baby was found unresponsive with significant bruising by officers responding to an emergency call.

The baby died shortly after at the hospital.

The women, ages 32, 25, and 22, along with a 25-year-old man alleged to be the father, were caring for the child and have been charged with felony child endangerment and other offenses related to the baby’s death.

One woman had overstayed her 1998 visa by over 25 years, while the other two violated the terms of their visa waivers by remaining in the US longer than allowed.

“The three Portuguese nationals were arrested Feb. 11 by the Pawtucket Police Department in connection with the child’s death, which occurred under their care,” ICE stated. “Police also arrested a 25-year-old man alleged to be the child’s father. The three women were charged with felony child endangerment; the alleged father was charged with manslaughter, three counts of second degree child abuse, and child endangerment.”

“One of the three female Portuguese nationals had been admitted on a nonimmigrant tourist visitor in April 1998 and unlawfully remained in the United States more than 25 years beyond the allowable terms of her visa,” ICE said. “The other two Portuguese nationals were admitted to the United States under a visa waiver program — one in July 2016 and the other in March 2022. Both violated the terms of their visa waivers by remaining in the country longer than allowed.”

ICE officials emphasized that those who commit crimes against children must be held accountable, and unlawfully present foreigners cannot escape consequences for dangerous actions.

“Those who commit crimes against children must be held accountable,” ERO Boston Field Office Director Todd M. Lyons said. “Unlawfully present foreign nationals posing a danger to our New England communities cannot expect to escape the consequences of their actions.”
