A 32-year-old Salvadoran man has become the sixth fatality to have occurred inside a migrant detention center on the southern border so far this year.

The father of the family, identified by the CBS network as Marvin Antonio González, died on Thursday morning hours after being apprehended by the Border Patrol in El Paso. The man had left his homeland a week ago and was traveling with his 11-year-old daughter.

On Wednesday around 9:00 am father and daughter were apprehended and taken to the Lordsburg Detention Center in New Mexico. The next morning, when they were being processed, the man "entered a medical crisis" and died, according to confirmed spokesmen for the Immigration and Customs Service (ICE) and the Border Patrol. Attempts to revive him failed. "We send condolences to his family," it was said in a statement reproduced in part by CNN.

Spokesmen for the Salvadoran consulate confirmed the man's identity and reported that the deceased's daughter is now in a New Mexico shelter.

Said diplomatic headquarters has formally requested an autopsy report to be carried out to determine the causes of death, as well as the medical records of the deceased.

With this, there are now six immigrants who have come of age who died when being in the custody of the immigration authorities along the southern border.

According to the American Bar Association, the deaths have occurred in Texas, Arizona, Georgia and now New Mexico. Multiple sources, including the press, the clergy, humanitarian activists, and even congressmen and celebrities, have denounced the conditions in which migrants are detained. Among the complaints, it is claimed that some people have been locked in cage cells, held incommunicado, without medical help, lack of adequate food and outbreaks of measles, influenza, fleas, lice and bedbugs.
