However, a subsequent medical examination found the woman was not lactating. Moreover, ICE identified her as being a Mexican national, further contradicting CNN's reporting. (RELATED: Trump Tears CNN a New One With Epic Response)
The Daily Caller reports:
A CNN article told the story of Maria Domingo-Garcia, a mother of three of who was among the 680 illegal aliens apprehended by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) earlier in August. Domingo-Garcia was arrested while working at a Koch Foods in Morton, Mississippi, and is currently being held in a facility in Jena, Louisiana.
Titled "A breastfeeding mom is still being held in an ICE facility 12 days after being detained, attorneys say," the article centered around Domingo-Garcia's separation from her four-month-old daughter, and the subsequent pain of not being able to breastfeed anymore. CNN spoke to Domingo-Garcia's attorneys, Juliana Manzanarez and Ybarra Maldonado, both whom claimed that she was still breastfeeding her baby at the time of her arrest.

"She is still really depressed. She is in a lot of pain because of not being able to pump or breastfeed," Manzanarez said, describing the Domingo-Garcia's physical pain after no longer nursing her baby.
The article included a statement from ICE that claimed Domingo-Garcia answered "no" when asked by an ICE official if she was breastfeeding. Her lawyers told CNN that statement was not true. "ICE is, once again, lying," Maldonado said. "She said nobody's asked her — not even one time — if she's been breastfeeding."
It's not clear if CNN took claims by Domingo-Garcia's attorneys at face value.
