The House Homeland Security Committee held a virtual hearing on the deaths of two migrant children who died while in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Health experts and representatives from two watchdog agencies testified that more could have been done to save the lives of Jakelin Caal, 7, and Felipe Gomez Alonzo, 8, who died from sepsis and the flu respectively after crossing the U.S. border in December 2018. Witnesses said a lack of training and available medicine, as well as over-crowding at detention facilities contributed to their deaths. Rebecca Gambler, Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) Homeland Security and Justice team director, also discussed its recently released report on the Customs and Border Protection’s misuse of funds. close
