Guatemalan migrant toddler dies weeks after U.S. detention

Guatemalan migrant toddler dies weeks after U.S. detentionA 2-1/2-year-old Guatemalan migrant boy who was detained last month at the U.S.-Mexico border but released from U.S. custody with his mother during treatment for an illness has died in hospital, authorities said on Wednesday. The death comes after three Guatemalan minors died in U.S. custody since December, during the biggest surge of migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border in a decade. Tekandi Paniagua, Guatemala's consul in El Paso, Texas, said the boy had been detained by U.S. migration officials after entering the United States in early April with his mother near the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, opposite El Paso.
