U.S. Customs and Border Protection said a 16-year-old Guatemalan boy died on Monday while detained by the Border Patrol in south Texas, AP reports.

The big picture: The migrant youth's death is the 5th incident since December. CBP has already received criticism of its migrant care. The White House requested $4.5 billion in emergency funding last month to help manage what it called a "humanitarian and security crisis."

Details: CBP said in a statement that the teenager was picked up on May 13 in south Texas' Rio Grande Valley. The cause of death is unknown. The agency did not explain why the teen was detained for a week, but said he was "due for placement" in a facility for youth by Department of Health and Human Services. Federal law demands that the Department of Homeland Security send unaccompanied minors to HHS within 72 hours.

President Trump tweeted on Friday that his administration is "going a different way" with coronavirus aid after negotiations with congressional Democrats stalled again, suggesting he will use an executive order to address stimulus spending.

What he's saying: "Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!" Trump tweeted.

Trump's swift, sweeping China offensive

President Trump's rhetoric on China has tended to run hotter than his actions — until now.

Why it matters: Even at the height of Trump's trade war, his administration never hit China as hard, as fast, and on as many fronts as it is right now.
