Systematic failure in death of Guatemalan girl: US lawmakerThe US lawmaker who led a delegation to New Mexico Tuesday to look into the death of a seven-year-old Guatemalan girl in US Border Patrol custody blamed the tragedy on glaring systematic failures. Jakelin Caal died last week in hospital in El Paso, Texas, after being arrested with her father and others crossing from Mexico December 6. “We learned today that (there was) some very disturbing systematic failure in how the young girl’s condition was handled,” Joaquin Castro, a Texas congressman and incoming chair of the Hispanic Caucus, told reporters on the border Tuesday in Lordsburg, New Mexico.
