A seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died several hours after she was picked up by border patrol for crossing the border illegally.
The poor girl was dehydrated and starving.
Now the liberal media is trying to blame the Border Patrol for her death.
The Border Patrol did not force her parents to drag her through the desert with food and water.
Her parents did.
Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said it best… “The death of a 7-year-old girl in the custody of U.S. Border Patrol last week “is a very sad example of the dangers” migrants face when they try to illegally enter the U.S.”
In what universe would this be the fault of the US government?
The BBC reported:
A seven-year-old girl who US officials say tried to cross the Mexico-US border illegally with her family has died hours after being taken into custody.
The Guatemalan girl, who authorities there have named as Jackeline Caal, died of dehydration and shock, the Washington Post reports.
AP news agency quotes border officials as saying she had not had food or water for several days.
Thousands of migrants have travelled from Central America to the US border.
