Mom of Daughter Murdered by Migrant Launches $100M Lawsuit

Tammy Nobles, a grieving mother whose daughter fell victim to a heinous crime committed by an MS-13 gang member in 2022, has initiated legal action against the federal government.

The lawsuit, filed this week, targets both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), seeking $100 million in damages.

The legal action follows the tragic incident in July 2020 when Nobles' 20-year-old daughter, Kayla Hamilton, was reportedly raped and strangled by a 16-year-old suspect.

The lawsuit contends that both federal agencies failed in their duty by permitting the entry of the unnamed El Salvadoran suspect without proper verification of his status through a phone call.

They are accused of negligence in placing him in a holding facility without identifying the incriminating gangland tattoos on the perpetrator.

The federal authorities allegedly neglected to confirm a verified sponsor for the suspect, leading to his escape and subsequent residence with Hamilton in a Maryland trailer home, having purportedly subleased from another undocumented individual.

In an emotional interview with NewsNation, Nobles and her attorney shed light on the details outlined in the newly filed lawsuit. Nobles criticized the agencies, stating that border personnel did not adequately perform background checks on the suspect.

She emphasized that proper screening would have revealed the suspect's MS-13 gang affiliation, preventing him from entering the U.S. The grieving mother asserted that the failure of oversight had fatal consequences, directly linking the agencies to her daughter's tragic fate.

Expressing her desire for public awareness about border-related issues, Nobles conveyed her discovery of the "mind-boggling" story and criticized the failure of border officials to check the suspect's background adequately.

She emphasized that a single phone call to El Salvador could have unveiled the suspect's gang membership. The grieving mother underscored the gravity of the situation, revealing how the suspect traversed from Texas to Maryland, ultimately residing in the same trailer as her daughter.

Despite anticipating the emotional difficulty, Nobles emphasized the importance of witnessing testimony and evidence presented by law enforcement officers investigating the crime. The grieving mother acknowledged the inevitable hardship but affirmed her determination to confront the painful truth during the trial.
