A 16-year-old boy died Monday at a Border Patrol station in Texas, becoming the fifth child from Guatemala to die since December after being apprehended by U.S. border patrol agents.

Federal prosecutors say the messages show Bowen's disdain for immigrants and restrictions on what measures he said agents are allowed to take to apprehend border crossers who run away. "For a frying effect". "PLEASE let us take the gloves off trump!"

A 16-year-old boy from Guatemala who died in USA custody yesterday had been held for six days - twice as long as federal law generally permits - then transferred to another holding facility after he was diagnosed with the flu.

"He was assessed and determined to have influenza A", the official said.

Defense lawyer Sean Chapman argues that certain terms are "commonplace throughout the Border Patrol's Tucson Sector, that it is part of the agency's culture, and therefore says nothing about Mr. Bowen's mind-set".

According to the CBP, Carlos was picked up on May 13 near Hidalgo, Texas and was transferred to the Weslaco Border Patrol Station in the Rio Grande Valley.

Six days after being apprehended, he indicated to staff at the Central Processing Center that "he was not feeling well", at which time he was seen by a contracted nurse practitioner.

Bowen was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 30, 2018, on charges of civil rights violations and falsifying records after the December incident, according to the Daily Star.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

The suspect almost ran over 23-year-old Antolin Lopez Aguilar then lied about the incident in his report, according to Arizona Daily Star.

The man fell to the ground after Bowen hit him with the truck a second time.

Among Bowen's texts was one to Swartz, in which he referred to striking the Guatemalan man as a "human pit maneuver", a reference to a technique that officers use to stop fleeing vehicles. The Border Patrol agent then handcuffed Lopez Aguilar before leaving him with the other two agents.

In other texts, Bowen allegedly used derogatory terms to describe the people he captured for his job.

In his report he claimed he hit Lopez with his truck giving "just a little push with a ford bumper" when in reality he hit Lopez twice and accelerated the truck "directly into the back of Lopez Aguilar's body", knocking him to the ground.

The December incident was not Bowen's first since joining the Border Patrol as an agent in 2008. The migrant in the 2015 incident was tackled after the person's group scattered.

A Customs and Border Protection statement said the cause of death was not yet known and that the Department of Homeland Security's watchdog and the Guatemalan government had been notified. So far, it seems the migrant families are only being released inland: El Centro border agents said they are releasing people in their area of operations, which includes Indio, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County. Chapman also represented Border Patrol Agent Lonnie Swartz, who was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter in November in the shooting death of a Mexican teen who was throwing rocks at agents.
