Detained Mexican migrant dies in Texas hospital

MCALLEN, Texas (AP) — A Mexican man detained by Border Patrol for illegal re-entry died Monday at a hospital in Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Andrew Meehan says the 45-year-old man was initially apprehended Feb. 2 and requested medical attention. He was taken to a medical center and later cleared to return to the Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station. The next day, he requested medical attention again and was taken to a hospital where he stayed until he died Monday.
