SAN ANTONIO One of the undocumented immigrants who died in a stifling tractor-trailer here this weekend was a 19-year-old who lived in the United States and graduated from high school in Northern Virginia before apparently being deported to his native Guatemala, according to interviews with government officials and postings on social media.
Frank G. Fuentes was one of at least three Guatemalan nationals on a truck packed with undocumented immigrants and driven by James Matthew Bradley Jr., said Cristy Andrino, the consul of Guatemala in McAllen, Tex. Fuentes previously had lived in Virginia, Andrino said.
The Guatemalan government said Fuentes, who was initially described as 20-years-old, died of heat exposure and asphyxiation. Bradley has been charged with smuggling immigrants for financial gain resulting in death.
(Snip to the money quote, seven paragraphs down)
Fuentes lost (DACA) protection after committing crimes in the United States and was deported to Guatemala City, Barillas told Univision on Monday. He was attempting to reunite with family members in the Washington area, Barillas said.

You knew it’d be Trump’s fault sooner or later. MSM has their fake news narrative marching orders now.
Justice comes in many forms.
Yeah I know where this is going - he was a good boy he dindu nuthin and he wanted to just get back with his family WHO ARE STILL HERE ILLEGALLY.
I shed no tears
BUILD THE WALL NOW
So Obama deported him... that’ll kill the story.
"The Guatemalan government said Fuentes, whose age was initially given as 20 and who presented himself on Facebook as an aspiring rap singer."
An aspiring rapper.
Aren't they all.
Interesting. Looks like they updated this article only minutes after I posted it.
"U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said hed been brought to this country before his second birthday and was deported on March 2, after being convicted of assault and battery by a mob, and was suspected of having ties to Mara Salvatrucha, the deadly street gang."
They also changed the title.
Better known as MS-13.
It also appears Fuentes was deported on March 2, 2017. Earlier in this thread you said he was deported in 2016.
“...after being convicted of assault and battery by a mob.”
How nice of that mob to convict him.
The media just can’t say illegal alien can they?
And that says everything you need to know about them being a monopoly.
A dead gang banger(MS-13) and Im supposed to feel sorry for him why?? Of course liberals are upset he and the others are dead, now they will have to come up with new voters, oh wait, I almost forgot, even the dead vote Democrat. Bottom line is this, we need the wall otherwise this will keep happening
The Washington Post updated almost the whole article only minutes after I posted it.
Not a dream - a nightmare.
I’m surprised WaPo even admits he had a record.
“Fuentes was suspected of being a member of MS-13”
Don't you know how this works yet?
If he had not broken the laws, he would still be alive.
While we're at it, let's give the truck driver a pat on the back for doing his part to Make America Great Again. /sarcasm only partly off/
I’m glad he’s dead. Stupid is supposed to hurt.
