Instead of blaming the parents of a seven-year-old girl who died at the border for having had no food or drink for several days – despite the best efforts of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and her ilk are blaming law enforcement as proof positive that the 6,000-strong caravan of “asylum-seekers” in Tijuana must be admitted into the U.S. “This is tragic. We need a full and thorough account of what happened before this 7-year-old girl died of dehydration and exhaustion in CBP custody,” Harris tweeted. Naturally, the leftist media is using the incident as “proof” the Trump administration hates children and migrants.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
In a true tragedy, a 7-year-old girl died last Friday after she and her parents, along with 160 others, crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally and surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents December 6. Eight hours later, the Guatemalan girl suffered seizures and was flown to an El Paso, Texas hospital, The Washington Post reported.
The girl went into cardiac arrest and “was revived,” the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) told the Post. “However, the child did not recover and died at the hospital less than 24 hours after being transported,” CBP said. The CBP also said the girl “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”
Now, one might think the parents of the young girl might bear the brunt of the blame. But to liberals and Democrats — especially those who want to run for president in 2020 — the blame goes squarely on President Trump and Republicans.
