A little girl died after being taken into custody by ICE. This has been made a ’cause celeb’ by the media and the liberals in Congress.
It is a lie.
The girl died of septic shock and dehydration. She and her father were picked up on the night of December 6 at about 10pm along with roughly 160 more illegal aliens who decided they were entitled to break into our country.
The girl reportedly hadn’t eaten or had anything to drink for several days and began suffering seizures about eight hours after being taken into custody, according to Customs and Border Protection.
Whose fault is it that the child wasn’t given anything to eat or drink and that she was dragged along in a group that could have possibly contained individuals with communicable diseases? Even the CDC admits this is a risk, although the document containing this data has “mysteriously” disappeared from its website.
A few hours inside, in custody, didn’t cause her condition. It shouldn’t be necessary to explain that. It took days in the desert without adequate food and water. The same thing would have happened to the child if the Border Patrol hadn’t picked them up and they continued to wander in the desert. In fact she wouldn’t have lasted as long.
An intake form signed by the girl’s father said she wasn’t sick, wasn’t sweating and seemed mentally alert. The form was obtained by The Associated Press.
Immigration officials briefing reporters say the girl’s father told officials that she was sick and vomiting when they were on a bus heading to a Border Patrol station. When they arrived 90 minutes later, the girl wasn’t breathing.
And put a hold on the “girl’s father” stick. Would a father fail to request water or help for his daughter for hours? Would a father drag a 7 year old child into the desert without providing food, water and protection from the sun for their own child? A man dragging along a little girl for ‘protective coloration’ might, as in “We’re a family let us in”. In truth that has become a common trick. Somebody should have waited for DNA or any validated identification before going along with this so-called ‘Father’ claim. By the way, that ‘Father’ seems fine, doesn’t he? I assume he had enough water.
But if you watched the media coverage of this incident the clear message being pushed is that the hours (NOT DAYS) in ICE custody was solely responsible for the little girls death (always emphasizing the sex and age of the victim). So that, obviously, ICE is evil and should be disbanded. The gates of the southern border should be thrown open and we should provide air-conditioned motor couches to the illegals to safely transport them across the desert. Ignore all the laws and wishes of actual American citizens, because . . . compassion.
Build the damn wall so no more seven year old girls die crossing the desert.
Or, my idea. Did you know we have huge warehouses of antipersonnel mines just sitting there? That’s a waste! Put them in the ground and put them to work!
