Migrant child detained at U.S.-Mexico border dies the fourth since December

The mother is still in El Paso but is not in custody.

A 2-year-old boy detained at the U.S. -Mexico border died Tuesday after several weeks in the hospital in El Paso, Texas, becoming the fourth Guatemalan minor to die in in U.S. custody since December, the Washington Post reports. The official said the child was taken by ambulance that day to a local hospital, where he was diagnosed with pneumonia, and then transferred the following day to a children's hospital in El Paso.

The child had been in the hospital in United States custody for several weeks after crossing into the USA with his mother, the Post reported, citing Guatemala Consul Tekandi Paniagua and another source.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection didn't respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

Tekandi Paniagua, Guatemala's consul in El Paso, Texas, said the boy had been detained by USA migration officials after entering the United States in early April with his mother near the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, opposite El Paso.

Guatemalan foreign ministry spokeswoman Marta Larra confirmed the boy's death, and said his illness started out like a flu infection and gradually got worse. A day later, the child was transported to a children's hospital. The agency says it's overwhelmed by the surge of migrant families crossing the U.S. -Mexico border. The deaths of migrant children have prompted US immigration authorities to increase medical checks of minors taken into custody along the country's southwest border.
