WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a Texas woman who wants to sue the federal government for sending her U.S. citizen baby to Mexico with the child’s illegal immigrant father.

Monica Castro’s daughter was a day from her first birthday when federal agents deported the father to Mexico and sent her with him. Three years would pass before Castro and the girl, both U.S. citizens who were born in Texas, were reunited.

Ms. Castro sued the federal government over the actions of the Border Patrol agents who refused to take the girl from her father and knowingly sent a U.S. citizen to Mexico. But a divided federal appeals court blocked the lawsuit.

The Supreme Court did not comment Monday in turning down Castro’s appeal.
