So the libs are all going crazy of this slapdown of the president by Time magazine that was released today:
"Welcome to America": TIME magazine announces its new cover that shows President Trump and the two-year-old Honduran girl crying at the US-Mexico border https://t.co/Ng7vOWqhar pic.twitter.com/q9yCRBDEgL— CNN International (@cnni) June 21, 2018
I have to admit, it’s an arresting image.
There’s a problem.
While the imagery of the crying child has been taken as an iconic example of the pain migrant kids are feeling when they’re separated from their families, the Daily Mail found her dad, and the facts don’t support the narrative.
The father of the Honduran girl who became the face of the family separation crisis has revealed that he still has not been in touch with his wife or daughter but was happy to learn they are safe.
Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that he had not heard from his wife Sandra, 32, who was with his two-year-old daughter Yanela Denise, for nearly three weeks until he saw the image of them being apprehended in Texas.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Hernandez, who lives in Puerto Cortes, Honduras, says that he was told yesterday that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’
He added that they were NEVER separated by border agents. Sooo she was crying because they were momentarily apprehended – I’m sure it’s scary for any child. But it doesn’t fit the narrative the mainstream media wants you to get from the photo, regardless of what you think about the photo…
