Washington: A seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died in American custody after being detained by US border police in the state of New Mexico, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

The girl, who illegally crossed the border from Mexico along with her father and dozens of others, died of "dehydration and shock," the newspaper reported, citing the US Customs and Border Protection.

Reports say that the child "had not eaten or consumed water for several days" and began having seizures over eight hours after being detained.The Post confirmed that she was flown to a hospital and died there.

Donald Trump has made hard-line immigration policies a central plank of his presidency, drawing fire from critics who accuse him of demonising migrants for political gain.
