Dec 6 - Video Shows Final Hrs of Teen's Horrible death in US Immigration Detention
 

 
Contrary to claims by Border Patrol, "they didn't take him to the hospital. They didn't release him. They didn't even seem to check on him as he was dying on the floor of his cell."

Footage from an immigrant detention center in Texas obtained by Pro Publica and published online Thursday shows the final hours of 16-year-old Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez—who died from complications of the flu while in custody—but also strongly indicates the border patrol agents responsible for his care lied about what happened that night.

Carlos, according to the news outlet,

was seriously ill when immigration agents put him in a small South Texas holding cell with another sick boy on the afternoon of May 19.

A few hours earlier, a nurse practitioner at the Border Patrol's dangerously overcrowded processing center in McAllen had diagnosed him with the flu and measured his fever at 103 degrees. She said that he should be checked again in two hours and taken to the emergency room if his condition worsened.

While a log kept by officers at the McAllen detention center in Texas says that Carlos, born in Guatemala, was given wellness checks three times over the course of four hours during the overnight, the video footage reveals that his seemingly lifeless body remained where it was—on the floor by the cell's toilet—from approximately 1:30am until Carlos' cellmate discovers him there after waking up past 6:00am. Notably, while the local police say the obtained the video footage from CBP, it contains a four-hour gap that the CBP has still not explained even as they refuse to hand over or acknowledge the existence of a complete recording of the night.

Pro Publica explained it decided to publish the available portion of the video "because it sheds light on the Border Patrol's treatment of a sick child and shows the government's account was not true."


The annotated video—the original of which was obtained from local law enforcement in Texas who investigated the death—details the final hours of Carlos life [warning the footage is graphic]:





Response to the video and accompanying reporting was a mix of a sadness, shock, and outrage.

"As immigration authorities sat by, a child lay dying from the flu on a slab of concrete in a pool of his own vomit next to a toilet," said Jess Morales Rocketto, chair of the immigration rights group Families Belong Together.

"Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez's death was preventable," Rocketto added. "As flu season is upon us, the Trump administration has ignored the CDC's demands to vaccinate children in their immigration jails. Three children have died of flu-related illnesses on the Trump administration's watch in the past year. We need action immediately to get children the life-saving care they deserve and ensure that no more kids die in cages."


Impeach Trump for this," said another user on Twitter.

As the Pro Publica notes towards the end of its long and detailed reporting on Carlos' death while in U.S. custody "reverberated beyond the small village of San Jose del Rodeo" from where he came.

"Friends posted video of his funeral and a village wake on social media, with emotional tributes to him," the outlet reports. "Guatemalan immigrants outside New York City held a fundraiser to help support his family, one of the goals Carlos had in coming to the U.S."

This sh*t sends me into a rage. They do this sh*t purposely. This obese orange imbecile already said that he wanted border patrol to shoot migrants at the border... so obviously it's his immigration policy to murder migrants by any means necessary.

Or people could just stick up for each other regardless of color/race against the oppressors. Putting a divider on the people will only make you weaker and it's pretty much how the government wants you to be...divided and weak.

Sucks the kid died but the kid was already sick when he arrived. People die everyday. We can't treat everybody that comes in illegally. Lots of Americans without healthcare die everyday, too.

They didn’t get him to proper medical attention. That’s the issue. Think.

It’s what happened to the native Americans when the whites came over, the natives didn’t have the antibodies and immunities to f*ght off the diseases the whites have brought over which started a plague.

Why let history repeat itself
Modern day Mexicans are way way way way way cleaner than the Europeans were back then... the Europeans were known to have been quite filthy and back then...
