David Muir Reports: Lawsuit to Be Filed Against Mexico for Human Rights Abuses Against Disabled

Enjoli Francis & Christine Romo - ABC News

Disability Rights International and David Muir of ABC News collaborated to uncover the deplorable conditions of residential institutions for children with disabilities in Mexico. Now, the organization is filing a “lawsuit at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights against the government of Mexico for ‘allowing egregious human rights abuses against children and adults with disabilities to continue unabated.’” The article and corresponding video shine light on the current status of these institutions, who promised to make changes following Disability Rights International’s report, and the little progress made to right the abuses these children have been subjected to.
