Jailed immigrant kills himself in Texas after reportedly being separated from family

Jailed immigrant kills himself in Texas after reportedly being separated from family

A sheriff's report shows that a Honduran man who entered the USA illegally killed himself in a Texas jail despite guards checking on him every half-hour and a camera in his padded cell. The sheriff's office said he didn't show any mental health problems or say anything that might have suggested he was thinking about killing himself. The Texas Rangers are now the lead investigative agency into Munoz's death. The Post report, citing unnamed Border Patrol agents, said he was with his wife and 3-year-old son and separated from them, but the federal statement made no mention of family members.

These policies have drawn a lot of criticism and Democrats have recently introduced legislation that aims to prevent family separation at the border.

Border Patrol agents said that the illegal aliens were trapped inside the cabinets and tightly wrapped with straps covering the outside, leaving them with no way to escape.

Texas border agents said on Saturday that they arrested six undocumented immigrants attempting to cross over into the United States by hiding inside furniture cabinets. "We'll draw a bill that gives us great border safety and security and it's fair".

Many who have criticized the policy have focused on its effect on children who are separated from their parents.

After being separated from his wife and three-year-old son when trying to cross the border into the USA last month, Marco Antonio Muñoz took his own life while being held in custody at a Texas jail. It said he was sent to the Starr County jail after becoming "disruptive and combative".

The report was filed June 5 to the Texas attorney general's office and obtained by the Associated Press on Sunday.
