Border Patrol stopped processing migrants temporarily at the agency’s largest detention center in McAllen, Tex. due to a flu outbreak. Nearly three dozen migrants fell ill and a 16-year-old Guatemalan boy died at the facility. The boy is the fifth child to die at a federal detention center in recent months.
