US Customs and Border Protection confirmed that an 8-year-old migrant died in US custody.

NBC:

An 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died of unknown causes in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection early Christmas morning in New Mexico, the agency said in a statement Tuesday.

A Border Patrol agent noticed that the child, who was apprehended with his father, “showed signs of potential illness” on Monday, CBP said, citing initial reporting.

The father and son were then taken to a medical center in Alamogordo, New Mexico, where the child was initially diagnosed with a common cold, according to the statement. When the boy was evaluated for release, hospital staff found a fever and he was held for an additional 90 minutes before being released on Monday afternoon, CBP said. The boy was given prescriptions for amoxicillin, an antibiotic, and the painkiller ibuprofen

On Monday night, the boy was nauseous and began vomiting and was sent back to the same hospital but died shortly after midnight Monday, the agency said.

We still don’t have all the information but from what we do have it is clear that Border Patrol did all they could to protect this young child and save it.

The reason this story will make headline news is due to the fact the left wants to use this to fight against Donald Trump’s immigration agenda.

Just a few weeks ago a young girl from Guatemala also died in US custody.

Of course, that didn’t stop the usual suspects from blaming Trump for this newest death as well.

The bottom line is that parents should not be dragging their kids thousands of miles without food or water.
According to government data, Border Patrol saved over 4000 migrants from sure death in 2018.
