8-year-old boy from Guatemala dies in government custody

The bases in Texas will be used to house migrants

An 8-year-old boy from Guatemala who was in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody died on Christmas, the agency announced in a news release on Tuesday.

The boy showed "signs of potential illness" Monday and was taken with his father to a hospital in Alamogordo, N.M., the agency said. He was released midday, given prescriptions for ibuprofen and the amoxicillin antibiotic.

In an official statement, the Department of Homeland Security reported that a USA border patrol agent noticed the minor exhibiting symptoms of illness on Monday and transported the boy, with his father, to a local hospital.

If you're planning on travelling today the weather is on your side. "Basically we've lost most of the snow we've had", said Scott. Elsewhere, as pressure builds, it'll be a calm, cool, quiet day with some of that early fog taking some time to clear.


The boy returned to the hospital later in the day and reportedly died hours later after suffering from nausea and vomiting.

CBP officials said in a release that a review will be conducted, as is procedure, and the Guatemalan government has been notified. The news release said that the boy's cause of death is not known. The Guatemalan government did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"During their period of detention they received medical screenings and further treatment as needed", the release said.

Jakelin Caal, a 7-year-old girl from Guatemala, lost her life as well earlier this month.

It is the second death this month of a migrant child who was detained after trying to cross into the United States through the U.S. -Mexico border.

Her death marked another flashpoint in the debate over the White House's hard-line approach to immigration enforcement, with many - including Jakelin's family - wondering if better medical care may have saved her. The Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General and appropriate members of Congress have also been notified.

The statement does not appear to have any approval from Netflix , or any of Spacey's former cast members. At one point, he looks in the camera, saying, "We're not done, no matter what anyone says".


The symptoms the 8-year-old boy exhibited are similar to the ones Jakelin manifested before she died.
