Today, the AP published a hit piece/propaganda piece after an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died after being treated in a U.S. medical facility on the border.
From the AP:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection ordered medical checks on every child in its custody Tuesday after an 8-year-old boy from Guatemala died, marking the second death of an immigrant child in the agency’s care this month.
The death came during an ongoing dispute over border security and with a partial government shutdown underway over President Donald Trump’s request for border wall funding.
The boy, identified by Guatemalan authorities as Felipe Gómez Alonzo, had been in CBP’s custody with his father, Agustin Gomez, since Dec. 18. CBP said in a statement late Tuesday that an agent first noticed the boy had a cough and “glossy eyes” at about 9 a.m. Monday. He was eventually hospitalized twice and died just before midnight, the agency said. CBP earlier said that the boy died just after midnight.
In light of the news of an 8–yr–old Guatemalan child dying in CBP custody, re-upping this oped about how insane and even criminal it is that medical personnel are not being given more access to these people and facilities.

When it comes to current events, one of the dumbest people in Hollywood, has-been actress Alyssa Milano never fails to disappoint. Yesterday, before knowing any of the circumstances surrounding his death, Milano tweeted about the death of the 8-yr-old Guatemalan boy. Along with a misleading article by AP, Milano asked Americans to “Imagine” if their child (who they illegally drug across our border) died “in custody of the country who was going to be his salvation?” Milano, who knew nothing of the boy’s situation, called it a “humanitarian crisis.”
Another child has died in US custody.
Imagine if you were a parent who felt they had to travel thousands of miles to keep their child out of harms way. And then your child dies in the custody of the country who was going to be his salvation?
This is a humanitarian crisis. https://t.co/KkPozUd6Fp

Now, several hours after Hollywood and the mainstream media have maxed out on hysteria and propaganda over the death of the 8-year-old old Guatemalan boy, it’s being reported that the father of the 8-year-old boy refused further medical treatment for the boy after multiple examinations by medical personnel.
The Daily Caller reports – The father of the Guatemalan child who died Christmas Eve denied further medical treatment from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents after the child vomited following an initial examination from doctors, a spokesman from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said on a call to reporters Wednesday.
Government officials provided further details, including the startling disclosure of the father’s behavior, regarding the timeline of the child’s deteriorating condition. According to officials, the 8-year-old boy, Felipe Gomez Alonzo, was given multiple medical examinations by doctors before being released with prescription medications.
Following the child’s first discharge from the hospital, both he and the father were put into a temporary holding facility where agents were aware of the child’s illness and provided the child with his medication. A few hours after the father and boy entered the facility, the child complained of being nauseous and later vomited.
It was at this point the father declined further medical treatment for his son and told officials he “had been feeling better,” an official said.
During a subsequent welfare check, agents at the facility noticed the child’s condition and transported him to the hospital. The child later lost consciousness during transit and was eventually declared dead just before midnight.
