Illegal Immigrant Child Mysteriously Dies in Federal Custody


LA JOYA, TX – On Nov. 21, 2021, at approximately 1:53 p.m., a Supervisory Border Patrol Agent encountered a group of twelve illegal immigrants approximately one mile south of La Joya, Texas.  The illegals were walking along an unimproved roadway and turned themselves in to the SBPA.  Upon initial contact with the SBPA, one of the female immigrants immediately requested medical assistance for her son, a four-year-old male citizen of Honduras.  The woman, also traveling with her five-year-old son, told the SBPA that her four-year-old son was sick and having difficulty breathing. The SBPA, a certified Emergency Medical Technician, assessed the child who was handed to him by the mother.   

The SBPA observed the child did not appear to have a fever, but noticed the boy having difficulty breathing. The SBPA asked the mother how long her son had been sick, and the mother replied he had been sick for a couple of weeks and had a history of renal failure.  Utilizing a stethoscope to listen to the boy’s breathing, the SBPA could hear crackling and wheezing, and noted he could have fluid in his lungs and possibly have pneumonia. 

The SBPA called for assistance to transport the group from the remote area to a nearby park where he could safely conduct a full assessment of the boy’s medical condition. Another Border Patrol agent met with the SBPA and assisted with transporting the group of illegal immigrants to the park.

Upon arrival at the park, the SBPA conducted a further medical assessment. The boy exhibited signs of respiratory distress and was going in and out of consciousness. At approximately 2:28 p.m., the SBPA requested Emergency Medical Services for the boy. Additionally, the SBPA requested a paramedic-certified Border Patrol agent respond to the scene as they would be authorized to administer medicines to the boy if needed. The SBPA began to administer oxygen to the boy via a mask while awaiting further assistance. The oxygen had an immediate effect and the boy’s condition improved.

Within several minutes of administering the oxygen, the Border Patrol agent-Paramedic arrived to assist.   The Border Patrol agent-Paramedic immediately administered liquid albuterol via a nebulizer to the boy to relax and open the air passages to the lungs to make breathing easier.  Within four to five minutes of receiving the medication, the boy became alert and showed signs of improvement.  The boy began to talk to his mother and asked for food and water. The agents continued to monitor and care for the boy while awaiting EMS arrival.

Approximately twenty minutes after the 911 call, Med Care EMS arrived and took over medical care.  At approximately 3:08 p.m., EMS transported the boy, along with his mother and sibling to the Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen, Texas, arriving at approximately 3:29 p.m..  

At approximately 9:02 p.m., the boy was transferred by EMS to Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance due to the lack of bed space at Rio Grande Regional Hospital.  At approximately 9:35 p.m., the boy was admitted into the facility and received medical treatment while under hospital watch by Customs and Border Protection.  At approximately 3:49 a.m., on Nov. 22, 2021, the boy succumbed to his ailments and was pronounced deceased by medical staff.

On Nov. 23, 2021, a forensic pathologist performed an autopsy on the child.  The preliminary findings indicate the cause of death was pneumonia and acute respiratory failure and the manner of death was natural.  The Hidalgo County Medical Examiner’s Office and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

At least he is honest about how republicans really feel about children.

An honest bastard is still a bastard, and to describe a dead kid as a "little shit" makes him an especially vile bastard.  There have been times when I thought him to be tolerable, but henceforth I will think of him as simply being a vile bastard unworthy of future notice.

I agree, but trust me, all of these republicans here feel the same way, he just said it out loud. They may try to say otherwise, but notice you and me are the only ones calling him out.

Republicans don't actually care about children, they care about their agenda of taking away rights, and since some people are single issue voters on those subjects, they will absolutely pander to those small groups so they can stay in power. Although with all of their voter suppression laws, gerrymandering, and them taking over state legislatures giving them the ability to throw out votes they don't like, I am not sure that it will matter anymore.

So much fun baiting you two idiots on and then you sink the hook and run with it..... lol~lol~lol
We shall play again some time soon..... :-) :-) :-)

I know you are just saying this as attempt to try to walk back your statement.

You said the quite part out loud now you regret it and pretend you were just attempting to "OwN ThE LiBs". Which even if true (it isn't, what you said is how you and all of the other republicans really feel), doing so at a dead child's expense is still just as bad. Republicans don't even have morals when they are pretending to joke around.

Ummmm........ No...., I stand by my statement. I just successfully achieved my objective in getting you 2 clowns on your high horses once again.... Y'all were played. And, we shall play again soon :-) :-)

So "owning the libs" at the expense of dead children is sport to you? Republicans are even more messed up than I thought.

Ummmm........ No...., I stand by my statement. I just successfully achieved my objective in getting you 2 clowns on your high horses once again.... Y'all were played. And, we shall play again soon :-) :-)

Republicans will just be glad the child is dead, while at the same time saying them taking away people's right's is all about the children.

Darned ole Bidens border patrol just can't take care of kids. Maybe they should ship them up to DC instead, so Biden can sniff them.
