HOUSTON – A Guatemalan official says a 2½-year-old migrant child has died after crossing the border, becoming the fourth minor known to have died after being detained by the Border Patrol since December.

Tekandi Paniagua, the consul for Guatemala in Del Rio, Texas, said Wednesday that the boy had entered the United States with his parent at El Paso, Texas, in early April. Paniagua said the boy had a high fever and difficulty breathing, and authorities took him to a children’s hospital where he was diagnosed with pneumonia.

The article goes on to state the following:

The boy remained hospitalized for about a month before dying Tuesday. The Washington Post first reported his death.

The Hill further reported:

An anonymous Customs and Border Protection official told the [The Washington Post] that CBP apprehended the boy and his mother on April 3 and that on April 6, she told officials he had become ill. The agent reportedly said that he was taken to Providence Hospital in Horizon City, Texas, that day and moved to Providence Children’s Hospital in El Paso, Texas, a day later.

The boy, who has not been identified, is the fourth child to die after a border apprehension since December, the Post reported. All of the children were from Guatemala.

  1. I am sorry the child passed. I can relate how the mother might be feeling but what are they doing dragging that young child across the country? Children are not made to be hauled all over. Don’t blame the U.S. for their parents decisions. Maybe many of those who blame the U.S. should stop and see how many of our own children they could be preventing from starving and becoming ill because of lack of food and shelter.
