SUMMARY: A US Customs and Border Protection internal investigation found that contracted personnel at a border station in South Texas did not contact doctors while an 8-year-old girl had a medical emergency in May. The child later died after medical professionals repeatedly denied her mother’s request for her to be taken to a hospital.
