Following a discussion about a 16-year-old Guatemalan boy who died in Customs and Border Protection custody this week, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Democrats need to act in order to prevent the humanitarian crisis at the border.

Hernandez Vásquez is the fifth Guatemalan child to die after being taken into custody at the border since December. During an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning, Sanders called Vasquez’s death an “absolutely horrible case” which is “exactly what the president … has been trying to prevent.”

“The president and his administration requested funding, supplemental funding just two weeks ago to help with the humanitarian crisis at the border,” she said. “Democrats have still failed to do that.”

Others, including former acting ICE director Tom Homan and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, have also called on Congress in recent days to “wake up” and act, and provide assistance to the “overwhelmed, overworked” border security officials.

“Unfortunately, this problem is going to get worse before it gets better. If members of Congress and the Democrat party continue to refuse to acknowledge the problem and start to help us fix it, they have to work with us,” Sanders said on Wednesday.

Vasquez was determined to have died from the flu after crossing the border through Texas with about 70 other people last Monday. He was prescribed Tamiflu, according to CBS, but was not brought to the hospital and information was not available on how frequently his condition was checked.
