EAGLE PASS, Texas (AP) - A 40-year-old female migrant has died in Border Patrol custody shortly after she was apprehended while crossing the border from Mexico.
A statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the Honduran woman was apprehended at 6:20 a.m. Monday. The woman collapsed at 6:45 a.m. after arriving at the Eagle Pass South Border Patrol station.

Acting CBP Commissioner John Sanders says the woman was the second migrant to die in a 36-hour period.
