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

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

An 8-year-old Guatemalan boy who jumped the Mexican border with his father and was caught by the Border Patrol died while in federal custody early Tuesday, Homeland Security officials said. "The child was held for an additional 90 minutes for observation and then released from the hospital mid-afternoon on December 24 with prescriptions for amoxicillin and Ibuprofen".

Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, return to Mexico after being hit by tear gas sprayed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

On Monday evening, the boy was nauseous and vomited.

The boy and his father were in CBP custody on December 24 when a Border Patrol agent noticed the child showing signs of illness, CBP said.

The unnamed boy is the second youngster to die in detention this month.

A CBP spokesman declined to elaborate Tuesday, but said details will be released shortly.

CBP said an official cause of death has not yet been determined.

In a news conference earlier this month, a migrant advocate said the girl's father, 29-year-old Nery Caal, had told him that Jakelin was healthy and had no pre-existing conditions. He died just hours later.

Officials say the girl and her father jumped the border late at night in a remote part of New Mexico, making it hard to quickly process the massive group.

The family's attorneys have said that it was "unacceptable" to have Jakelin's father sign a document in a language that he didn't understand.

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.
