A second child from Guatemala has died while in United States custody after becoming ill at a detention centre.
The eight-year-old boy was brought to a New Mexico hospital on Christmas Eve with what appeared to be a cold and fever.
Officials say the child and his father were released but came back when the child was nauseous and vomiting.
The boy died a few hours later. His death comes just weeks after a seven-year-old girl died in hospital shortly after being apprehended by border agents.
