HHS employee dies while helping at shelter for unaccompanied migrant children in Houston

A federal employee died this weekend at an emergency shelter set up to care for unaccompanied migrant children in Texas, according to a health department email obtained by The Washington Post.

Mary Brodie-Henderson, an IT specialist in the department of Health and Human Services, was working at a site in Houston, Texas, that housed several hundred unaccompanied children. Brodie-Henderson collapsed on Friday evening and could not be revived at a nearby hospital, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra wrote in an email to staff.

“We are saddened by this terrible loss, and immensely grateful for Mary’s contributions and every single person contributing to this effort serving unaccompanied children,” Becerra wrote.

The Biden administration has spent weeks calling for federal volunteers to respond to the surge of unaccompanied children at the border. Officials have appealed to a range of staffers, including employees who work in far-flung divisions like the Federal Trade Commission and have limited health care or human services expertise, to support the expanding effort and staff the shelters.

1. Contributes more value to the human race than any 100,000 trump supporters combined

and yet each and every one of those rump supporters can be counted on to CRITICIZE this Woman for what she did, instead of applaud her.

I have rump supporters in my family who PURPOSELY refuse to wear a mask when we go to the kid's baseball and football games. But I am the one expected to reach out to them and treat them normally, FUCK THAT

3. Are you referring to OxyRush?

Because that asshole was high as a kite the whole time while demonizing others for abusing drugs.

4. that's the guy. their COVID guru. the collusion between limbaugh and the orange sphincter

to call COVID a hoax after the orangeass already knew how bad it could be should be considered evidence of pandemicide. they are responsible for killing hundreds of thousands.

overcrowding the shelters was part of the plan. and 1500 radio stations were going to blame a lot of it on 'illegal aliens' like they did with ebola. they wanted the shelters to get it bad to feed their grand wall plans, etc. demonizing immigrants has been a big part in selling voter suppression legislation.

5. Locking

Per consensus of forum hosts, this should be posted in GD instead of LBN because it is not high importance national news. Feel free to repost there.
