Who was Angel Eduardo Maradiaga Espinoza?
In federal detention, a 17-year-old Honduran immigrant who traveled alone to the US from that country died. The boy, named Ángel Eduardo Maradiaga Espinoza by the Honduran foreign affairs office, died at a shelter in Florida. In a statement acknowledging the death, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) failed to include his name or the manner in which he died. In recent days, the US authorities have prepared for an increase in border crossings.
The death occurred at a shelter in Safety Harbor, a city on the Tampa Bay coast in west Florida, according to Enrique Reina, the Honduran foreign secretary, who posted on Twitter on Friday. The HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which is responsible for housing and providing for unaccompanied migrant children, oversees the shelter. Mr. Reina stated that his administration had spoken with the teen’s relatives and demanded “a thorough investigation” into the circumstances behind the teen’s death. A source told CBS News, the BBC’s US partner, that the boy had been in US custody for five days. He was discovered in a coma on Wednesday morning, taken to a nearby hospital and eventually pronounced dead, the source continued.
Following the overnight expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era border policy designed to quickly deport immigrants who crossed illegally, news of the death was announced. A possible influx of immigrants in the coming weeks has officials concerned that jails and housing facilities will become overburdened. However, according to HHS authorities, there was no appreciable increase in the number of migrants apprehended on Friday. It’s also unclear if the boy’s death was related to the repeal of Title 42. According to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, the administration “is certainly aware of the tragic loss, and our hearts go out to the family. ” A total of three out of 10 migrant minors in the custody of Unties States came from Honduras.
