Customs and Border Protection is halting the intake of any new migrant prisoners at the McAllen, Texas, processing center following the death of a 16-year-old Guatemalan migrant who died after being diagnosed with the flu. Officials say they have identified a large number of likely flu cases. Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez was the fifth known migrant child to die while in Border Patrol custody since December. Before last year, no child died in immigration custody in more than a decade.
