A government surveillance video has emerged which shows a Mexican teenager being encouraged to drink liquid meth by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to prove he had no intention to smuggle illegal drugs into the country. Sixteen-year-old Cruz Velazquez died two hours after consuming the drug solution.

The video obtained by ABC News on Friday, and taken in Nov. 2013, has sparked outrage among leaders in the Congress and raised concerns about the protocols that border agents follow while dealing with immigrants.

According to reports, no disciplinary action has been taken against the two officers, Valerie Baird and Adrian Perallon.

A former head of internal affairs at Customs and Border Protection, James Tomsheck, told ABC News the two officers who asked the teen to drink the liquid violated agency protocols. Tomsheck said the officers were told then they would be punished for their actions.

"If they truly suspected there was a controlled substance in the bottle," Tomsheck said, "they should've conducted a field test."

Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California and the ranking member on the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security, criticized the officers’ actions.

"Drug smuggling is wrong and is a crime, but this teenage boy did not deserve a death sentence. For CBP officers to inflict a summary death sentence is not only immoral, but also illegal," Lofgren told ABC News.

Velazquez was attempting to enter the United States at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in Nov. 2013 when border control officials stopped him, the surveillance video showed.

Then it appears that Baird and Perallon encouraged the boy to take repeated sips from two large drug-filled bottles. Velasquez took four sips of the liquid meth solution.

A short time later, Velazquez was "screaming in pain and clenching his fist," according to NBC Los Angeles. He was then taken to a nearby hospital where he died. Baird and Perallon still work as officers and have denied asking the teen to drink the solution.

"I never asked him to. He volunteered to and I believe I gestured to him to go ahead," officer Perallon said under oath.

The teen's family sued the department and the two officers accusing that their encouragement led to the boy's death. The suit also claimed the agents "coerced and intimidated Cruz into taking a big sip from one of the bottles."

"It’s true that Cruz was doing something that was against the law," Gene Iredale, a family attorney defending the case said. "It’s also true that they did not point their guns at him or physically threaten him but in a social context in which this occurred, they knew exactly what they were doing."

In March, Velazquez’s family received a $1 million settlement against the lawsuit, according to New York Daily News.
