Recently there has been a video shown to the public where a sixteen-year-old named Carlos died after not receiving any medical attention. Carlos had the flu and was never given the proper medical attention he needed. Even when he was dying in his cell, the border patrol never cared to check up on him. This teen was being held in a concrete cell, along with other cellmates. The guards never noticed the body until another cellmate told them about it. Many others are held in these cells that are not receiving the right attention. Even if they come to the country illegally they should not be treated so unfairly; at the end of the day they are still human and they deserve to be treated better.
