This is the fourth migrant to die while in Customs and Border Patrol custody since December.

According to CBP, agents arrested a 40-year-old Mexican national for illegal re-entry. Officials say they took the man to a nearby hospital where he was diagnosed and treated for the flu and liver failure.

The man died on Monday.

The ACLU told NBC News that a transparent and independent investigation into the conditions of CBP facilities and medical treatment is needed immediately.
