  • Catarina Alonzo, the mother of 8-year-old Felipe Gomez Alonzo, said her son wasn’t ill on his journey to the United States.
  • Felipe is the second child to die this month in Border Patrol custody.
  • His mother’s comments contradicted President Donald Trump’s tweets on Saturday, which said the two children were already sick by the time they entered Border Patrol custody.
  • The New Mexico medical examiner’s office, which conducted an autopsy, said that Felipe tested positive for the flu.

The mother of a boy who died while in US custody says her son was healthy when he left Guatemala with his father on their journey hoping to migrate to the United States.

The mother of 8-year-old Felipe Gomez Alonzo, Catarina Alonzo, spoke Saturday with Associated Press journalists at the family’s home in a remote Guatemalan village some 250 miles west of Guatemala City.
