The 7-year-old migrant girl who died in Border Patrol custody received medical care 90 minutes after first showing symptoms
- The 7-year-old migrant girl who died in Border Patrol custody last week has been identified as Jakelin Caal Maquin.
- Jakelin died December 8, shortly after she and her father were apprehended while illegally crossing into a remote area of the desert in New Mexico as part of a group of 163 migrants.
- According to CBP, Border Patrol agents first became aware of the girl's symptoms during a bus ride to the Lordsburg Border Patrol station around 5 a.m. on December 7, when her father said she was sick and vomiting.
- CBP said the bus arrived at the station just before 6:30 a.m., when Jakelin's father said she wasn't breathing.
- The Department of Homeland Security and its secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, drew backlash on Friday after appearing to blame Jakelin's death on the family members who brought her across the US-Mexico border.
After a 7-year-old migrant girl died in Border Patrol custody, Kirstjen Nielsen said 'this family chose to cross illegally', and critics are outraged she's blaming the death on the family
- The Department of Homeland Security and its secretary, Kirstjen Nielsen, are drawing backlash after appearing to blame the death of a seven-year-old migrant girl in Border Patrol custody on the family members who brought her across the US-Mexico border.
- The child arrived in the US on December 6 with her father, as part of a group of 163 migrants who crossed the border illegally in a remote part of the desert in New Mexico, the Washington Post reported Thursday evening.
- But migrants and advocacy groups have long argued that the US's increasingly fenced-off, militarized border — as well as the Trump administration's practice of turning away asylum-seekers at the ports of entry — forces migrants to cross in increasingly remote, dangerous locations in the desert.
- The American Civil Liberties Union blamed the "lack of accountability, and a culture of cruelty within CBP" for the child's death in a statement to The Post.
Nielsen is getting serious about going private and will talk to potential buyers in January
- Nielsen Holdings plans to host management presentations for interested private equity buyers in January after hiring a new CEO earlier this month, according to people familiar with the matter.
- Blackstone, working in tandem with Hellman & Friedman, and Bain Capital are planning to meet with Kenny to discuss a potential deal in January, said the sources.
- A deal for Nielsen could be an indication that leveraged buyouts, which have gained consistent momentum in aggregate dollar value since 2009, could become another credible way for larger companies to exit the public market.
- The firms include a consortium led by private equity firms Blackstone and Hellman & Friedman, two of the people said.
- But Nielsen had pushed away from engaging with potential buyers until it hired a CEO, two of the people said.
Twitch esports fans are more dedicated than other esports enthusiasts

- Nielsen surveyed more than 2,000 U.S. esports fans who follow games like League of Legends, Overwatch League, and Fortnite.
- It also said that 50 percent of Twitch esports fans have a paid TV subscription service; less than 40 percent claim to view television on a weekly basis.
- Nielsen also found that 60 percent of Twitch esports fans engage with gaming personalities on a daily basis, and nearly one in three viewed at least five hours of live Fortnite video content on Twitch in the past year.
- Nielsen collected the Twitch Esports Fan data via an online survey deployed among a representative group of U.S.-based users from the Twitch Research Power Group (RPG).
