7-year old Guatemala girl dies while in custody of US Customs and Border Protection custod

A 7-year old girl from Guatemala reportedly died from dehydration and exhaustion, after a group of migrants turned themselves into the Border Patrol near Lordsberg, New Mexico according to the Washington Post.

Border Patrol officials said the young girl was a part of a group of 163 people who approached U.S. agents last week.

Customs and Border Protection records showed the girl had not eaten or drank water for several days before she died.

The girl’s father is said to be in El Paso awaiting a meeting with Guatemalan consular officials.
