  • The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has not released the identity or nationality of the girl and her family.

An eight-year-old migrant girl passed away while in U.S. Border Patrol custody, due to a “medical emergency,” marking the second death of a migrant child under the Biden administration’s care this month.

The tragic incident occurred at a Border Patrol facility in Harlingen, Texas.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that the girl suffered a severe medical incident while in Border Patrol custody with her family. Officials called an ambulance, which transported her to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead. The details surrounding the nature of the “medical emergency” have not been disclosed.

This unfortunate event follows a similar incident that occurred on May 10, when a 17-year-old Honduran boy, Ángel Eduardo Maradiaga Espinoza, died in his sleep while in the care of a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services facility in Safety Harbor, Florida. The boy’s mother had been reassured that he was in a shelter and in “the best hands.”

The identities and nationalities of the eight-year-old girl and her family have not been released by the CBP. The Office of Professional Responsibility is conducting an investigation into the incident, as is standard protocol for such cases. The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General and the Harlingen Police Department were also notified.

    they are easier to sniff, when contained, behind a barrier (wall)

    It’s a hint. Don’t come here. Mexico has free healthcare. You are a bad parent.

    The child would not be dead if the parents didn’t try to invade America. I am sure she is not the first to die on the trek to overcome America. Loads are dying. And quite frankly, I don’t care that they are dying. Better them than us. And it really is a war; they are the invaders. So if they die, well, them’s the breaks.

    Democrats, starting at the top should be ashamed and held responsible for all the deaths at the border.

      Why should anyone be held responsible for people illegally entering the USA. Doris, breaking the law is a crime! There are legal ways to enter a country. I have gone to other countries and have never had any trouble – why? Because I did not do so illegally. Laws are for a reason! You are always at risk when you commit a crime. Do you realize the money problem you are putting on us, the taxpayers. Go to a school where there are illegal students and see how it burdens the school and students. I volunteered a lot at a school overrun by illegals and it is hard for the school, town, and especially the students!

    Intentional “illegal” and “improper” entry, into the US, placed them in Border Patrol custody. I have great difficulty mustering sympathy for invaders.
    Stop coming here to die ?

    Hey, Biden and your squad of monkeys! How’s that “breaking into our coutry for a better life” thing working out for illegals under your watch? You people ought to be arrested for negligent homicide.

      PKD. – If a person wants a better life they should do it legally. I’ve often wondered why illegals do not work for a better country where they are. History tells us that is how the USA became successful- our ancestors came here, lived in mud houses until they could build a log house, they grew their food and built a life, they did not come to live off others work! No, PKD, the invaders are committing negligent homicide.

    And, look at the picture of Biden’s growing army. Laying there, pretending to be handcuffed.

    I wonder what the odds are that the young girl couldn’t get an abortion at home, and came here instead. Dead girl? So what? Dead baby? What’s one more? Who cares? It’s a wonderful world!
