A Honduran man who "lost it" when he entered the U.S. and was told he would be separated from his family killed himself in a Texas jail cell, according to police and Border Patrol agents.

While being processed there, he became disruptive and combative, so for his safety and the safety of others, he was transferred to a jail in Starr County, Texas, CBP said.

The sheriff's report, obtained by The Washington Post, stated that the 39-year-old Honduran man was found on the floor of his jail cell. He was found unresponsive in his cell on May 13.

Munoz was declared dead around 10 a.m., the report states.

Representatives from the Starr County Sheriff's Office did not return multiple calls and emails for comment on Saturday.

The president has blamed Democrats for creating a law that requires children and parents to be separated, but no such law exists.
