Two Immigrant Children Have Died in U.S. Custody in the Last Week

A 16-year-old Guatemalan child has died while in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody, the agency said in a statement on Monday. The child, who was not identified in the statement, is the fifth minor to die while in U.S. immigration custody in six months, and the second in just the past week. All five children were Guatemalan.

The 16 year old’s death comes less than a week after a two-year-old child died in Border Patrol custody. The child entered the U.S. with his mother and had been hospitalized for more than a month prior to his death. He appeared to have suffered from pneumonia, according to Guatemalan General Consul Tekandi Paniagua. And two weeks before that, another 16 year old died while in ORR custody.
