The Democrats are back at it again, this time trying to blame a 7-year-old migrant who died on anyone who wants border security.
Here are some tweets:
A 7-year-old girl should not be dying of dehydration and shock in Customs and Border Protection custody.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) December 14, 2018
Secretary Nielsen and @DHSgov must be held accountable for Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquin’s death. https://t.co/W1jMYJWc7Q
I am deeply saddened by this girl’s death. There must be a complete investigation and the results shared with Congress and the public. https://t.co/3ja8CZ6rlG— Beto O’Rourke (@BetoORourke) December 14, 2018
There are no words to capture the horror of a seven-year-old girl dying of dehydration in U.S. custody. What’s happening at our borders is a humanitarian crisis. https://t.co/8KZeynGjIv— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) December 14, 2018
However, the Democrats are hiding one major aspect of this story.
According to CBP records, the girl and her father were taken into custody about 10 p.m. Dec. 6 south of Lordsburg, N.M., as part of a group of 163 people who approached U.S. agents to turn themselves in.
More than eight hours later, the child began having seizures at 6:25 a.m., CBP records show. Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees, and according to a statement from CBP, she “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”
Is it Border Patrols fault she had not eaten or drunk anything for days? Of course not. In fact, this proves why we need to step incentivizing illegal immigration to the United States. It is a dangerous journey and one that should not be taken by anyone.
