Body of Guatemalan migrant girl who died in US custody returns homeThe body of a Guatemalan migrant girl, who died in US custody after illegally crossing the border with her father, returned home Sunday in a white casket. The December 8 death of Jakelin Caal, seven, reignited a debate in the United States on immigration policy and the treatment of migrants. Guatemalan foreign ministry officials at the airport in Guatemala City received Jakelin’s casket, adorned with gold-colored trim, before a hearse carried it on the 10-hour journey to her village of San Antonio Secortez, about 150 kilometers (93 miles) north of the capital.
