Fourth migrant dies in Border custody A 40-year-old Mexican migrant has died in U.S Customs and Border Protection custody, the fourth such death since December.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that the man died Monday at the Las Palmas Medical Center in El Paso, Texas.

U.S Border agents apprehend the man before dawn near the Bridge of Americas and was taken to the Border Patrol's processing facility near the Pase Del Norte Port of Entry where he was evaluated by medical personnel and diagnosed with flu-like symptoms, liver failure and renal failure, the department said in a media release published Tuesday.

He was transported to the medical center where he died later that day.
