Guatemalan teen dies after apprehension at the U.S.-Mexico border

Guatemalan teen dies after apprehension at the U.S.-Mexico border

"We asked them where they were going to drop us off and they said at a bus station and there you might find some people who can help you, and that's it", said Angel Gonzalez, 34, who left Guatemala on April 25 with his 11-year-old son and traveled through Mexico before crossing the USA border.

This comes as acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders issued a statement over the weekend confirming that the agency is transporting hundreds of families from "severely overcrowded processing facilities to less-crowded stations along the Southwest border".

According to the CBP, Carlos was picked up on May 13 near Hidalgo, Texas and was transferred to the Weslaco Border Patrol Station in the Rio Grande Valley.

Under U.S. law, unaccompanied children must be transferred from CBP into the care of the Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours of arrest.

Hurd said the first step to solving the crisis at the U.S. -Mexico border is establishing a special representative at the Northern Triangle, countries including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, to work with them on the root causes of the crisis.

"The men and women of U.S. Customs and Border Protection are saddened by the tragic loss of this young man and our condolences are with his family". He told medical staff he wasn't feeling well on Sunday, and was prescribed medicine after getting diagnosed with the flu. He was found to be unresponsive during a welfare check Monday morning.

According to the United States and Guatemalan authorities, the small child died after several weeks in the hospital. Bowen is charged with using a Border Patrol vehicle to hit a fleeing Guatemalan man in Nogales, Arizona on December 3, 2017, and lying about it in a report.

Swartz was accused of killing unarmed 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez in Mexico by shooting him through the border fence at Nogales during an alleged rock-throwing incident in 2012.

"This is a failed agency", Matthew Bowen once wrote in a text message, according to court documents obtained by The Arizona Daily Star.

Last week a two-year-old boy from Guatemala died at a hospital in Texas after he and his mother were detained by border patrol. Carlos had been detained for a week at the time of his death. Jakelin Caal Maquin, 7, died of sepsis, a bacterial infection, in an El Paso hospital in December, two days after she and her father were detained.

Officials say the increase in asylum seekers is straining their detention capacity at border entry points.

That strain is particularly acute in the Rio Grande Valley, which has more unauthorized border crossings than any other region.

Most migrant families and children arriving at the southern border have traveled from Central America and are often exhausted and ill.

"It is unsafe and cruel to detain people, particularly children, in crowded and unsanitary conditions for seeking protection", it added.
