Second Guatemalan child dies in immigration custody

Second Guatemalan child dies in immigration custody”

Authorities did not disclose the results of the examinations.

After being detained in El Paso, Texas, he and his father were taken to a local processing centre, where they spent two days. She began vomiting then stopped breathing en route, and agents managed to revive her twice, though she died a day later at a hospital after suffering liver and respiratory failure and a heart attack.

The official cause of death is unknown.

The children's deaths have highlighted the life-and-death challenges that migrants face in attempting to come to the United States and caused CBP to announce several policy changes around its care of children under 10 years old.

The boy and his father were taken to a temporary site at the Highway 70 checkpoint, where the child received the medication.

The Guatemalan Consulate was contacted about the child's death.

Trump Tweets: Defense Secretary Mattis to Retire in February
Mattis, along with other national security aides, was said to have opposed Trump's decision to remove US troops from Syria. It also quoted the secretary as saying that defense chiefs "don't always get to choose the president they work for".

His father declined further medical assistance, the CBP said, as the child had been feeling better. The body of seven-year-old Jakelin Caal, who died earlier this month, was returned this past week to her village in Guatemala for burial. A CBP statement also indicated they are working with ICE (Immigrations and Customs Enforcement) to ease transportation and housing restrictions for youths, making it easier for them to get medical treatment.

In the wake of the boy's death, McAleenan announced a series of moves on Tuesday night.

He was the second young migrant to die while in USA custody this month, inciting outrage and raising questions about how US officials care for migrants who fall ill after their long journeys from Central America. They had both been detained for crossing the border. Agents last month also apprehended 25,172 "family units", or parents and children together. "It's been more than a decade since we've had a child pass away anywhere in a CBP process, so this is just devastating for us". The Associated Press reported this month that 14,300 children were being detained by HHS, most in facilities with more than 100 kids.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said the boy - identified by the Guatemalan consul in Phoenix as Felipe Gómez Alonzo - had shown "signs of potential illness" on Monday and was taken with his father to a hospital in Alamogordo, New Mexico.

"This is an extraordinarily rare occurrence", McAleenan told "CBS This Morning" of the recent child deaths.

"CBP is coordinating with the Centers for Disease Control on the numbers of children in custody as well", he said.

Trump attacks Fed on eve of policy meeting
Powell himself could provide clarity in his news conference if he indicates where he thinks the "neutral rate" is. Similar cycles of rate increases previously have resulted in stock-market crashes or economic recessions.

The US government is now shut down due to an impasse between Donald Trump and the Senate over $5 billion (Sh500 billion) of funding the president is demanding to build a border wall between the US and Mexico.

"This is inexcusable", she said in a statement Tuesday.

Felipe was given a diagnosis of common cold and given Tylenol.

The boy was released just before 3 p.m., about 90 minutes after he had been found to have a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit (39.4 Celsius), CBP said. He was released shortly afterwards with a prescription for an antibiotic and ibuprofen.

At about 7 p.m., agents helped clean up the boy's vomit.

Felipe Gonzalez, the United Nations special rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, said Monday that the US government's detention of children due to their immigration status violated worldwide law.
