Video shows teen in U.S. Border Patrol custody writhing on floor for hours before dying

Video showing a U.S. Border Patrol cell where a 16-year-old from Guatemala died of the flu shows the teen writhing, collapsing on the floor and being left there for hours alone before he was found dead.

Violation of human rights?

This happened in May. Why are we just now hearing about it? That video is heartbreaking. The kids are laying on a concrete floor. They didn't do a welfare check, that's a lie. He was supposed to go to a different agency that takes care of kids that just came across the border. They didn't do that either. Put youth in cages, dehumanize them and let them die. Criminal acts.

Only the Western world?

Go see what it's like to be a woman, or a Christian, in many Eastern countries.

Go see what it's like to live under Sharia law, or in Eastern countries led by ruthless dictators.

The reason America gets so much attention for tragedies such as this, is because America has liberties including freedom of the press that other countries do not.

You don't think women and children are dying at the hands of those who run Eastern countries?

Ridiculous.

We are supposed to be better than that. Our highest aspiration is that our government was founded on immigration, freedom of speech, and religion. Now that we are going backwards, we are supposed to be comforted by the horrors that happen in other places? And be complacent in the comparison game? I don't think so.

It's like saying, I only beat my family, my neighbor killed his, so I'm so much better.

Nothing to do with what I wrote. This sort of thing happens elsewhere besides Western countries, that was my only point.

cborgman and trickster said the Western (industrialized) world IS doing it - not that the "Eastern" (not sure what that means) world IS NOT doing it. Strawman to deflect blame for anyone who is guilty - and the US most certainly is.

Carlos Hernandez Vásquez,16, was the fifth minor to die in ICE custody during the Trump administration, now there are 6 - compared to none before. There is no doubt we have amped up inhumane immigration practices.

Such a tragic situation. I wonder how many more we haven’t heard about.

"According to CBP, under the Obama administration, in 2014 there were a total of 313 deaths at the southwest border, 251 in 2015 and 329 in 2016."

if i understand you correctly, because such bad things have happened in Arab or other regimes-led countries is it justifiable that it is happening now in the Western world as well? Until some time ago, I always thoughtthat this is exactly the difference, here in the western world people are not treated as inhumane as there.

But this time seems over now, sad

Nice try. I said MINORS.

Prior to two children’s deaths in December (2018), it had been more than a decade since a child died while in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
