Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Wednesday called the death of a child in government custody "deeply concerning and heartbreaking", and reiterated her call for "parents to not place their children at risk by taking a risky journey north".
The boy showed "signs of potential illness" on Monday and was taken with his father to a hospital in Alamogordo, New Mexico, the agency said.
The boy was found to have a fever and cold and was released with a prescription for an antibiotic and Ibuprofen.
He was released on Monday afternoon but returned to the same hospital in the evening with nausea and vomiting.
The agency said the cause of death had not been determined, and that the Department of Homeland Security's inspector-general and the Guatemalan government had been notified.

The father and son were not identified, and the agency said it will release more details "as available and appropriate".
Earlier in December, seven-year-old Jakelin Caal, also from Guatemala, died after being detained along with her father by United States border agents in a remote part of New Mexico.
