An 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died in Customs and Border Protection custody in New Mexico very early Tuesday morning after being transferred to the hospital earlier Monday.
According to reports, the boy’s father was with him in the hospital where he was diagnosed with a cold. Doctors gave the boy amoxicillin and medication to bring his fever down then released him.
Later that night, the boy returned to the Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center with nausea and vomiting where he passed away, reported the Associated Press.
The Customs and Border Protection says the official cause of death is unknown at this time.
The unnamed 8-year-old Guatemalan boy is the second child to die this month in Customs and Border Protection custody and the Democrats are blaming the US government.
A couple weeks ago, a seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died of severe dehydration several hours after she was picked up by border patrol for crossing the border illegally.
The parents of these children are to blame, but never let a crisis go to waste, right?
The journey from Central America to the United States is very dangerous, especially for women and children.
Women are often raped and the undernourished children are trafficked, but the media never tells the truth.
Disease and illness spread like wildfire in the caravans and camps and vulnerable children suffer the most.
As expected, the left is blaming the US government and the Trump administration for the death of the 8-year-old Guatemalan boy even though he was treated by doctors at a hospital in New Mexico.
What is happening at our southern border?! This makes the second death of a young child at our border in as many weeks. This is outrageous! This shocks the conscience.https://t.co/38VLtmtVFz

A second child has died in US Custom and Border Patrol custody. We need Congressional hearings for all involved, Including Nielsen and Miller!
Note that last week Nielsen refused to answer how many children have died in DHS custody. https://t.co/km3VOaqQnt

Stop the gilded White House cards & selfish posturing. Stop the tossing of lives for sport. Stop claiming a refugee Jesus is your Savior. @realdonaldtrump, you are an abomination.
