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.
