The media is running crazy stupid again with the story of a migrant girl who arrived at the border so dehydrated that she died very soon after immigration officials took her in.
@Ag_conservative has a very good thread about why they’re lying.
You can argue that her dad had legit reasons for taking her on the dangerous journey from Guatemala and having her cross the border illegally, but that doesn’t change that it’s clear the journey is what caused her death.— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) December 15, 2018
She was having seizures and had a 105 degree fever within a few hours of being in custody. She was taken into custody in a remote area. As soon as they got her to a border station w medical personnel, they got her medical treatment and airlifted her to a hospital.— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) December 15, 2018
You can either blame the father for taking her on this journey or blame no one, but it’s despicable that the media is going out of their way to blame CBP when there is 0 evidence they did anything other than their jobs and try to save her life.— (((AG))) (@AG_Conservative) December 15, 2018
He’s exactly right. The media is lying about the circumstances of her death to make it sound like all of our border officials are evil assholes just waiting to kill migrants. That’s just not the case.
And here come the race hustlers and charlatans to lie about what happened:
And the politicians of course:
Here’s a news video about the story:
I want to say that there’s something very ghoulish and sinister about how some on the right are reacting to this story. It’s a tragedy. This world is broken. Terrible things happen. But just because we’re advocating for the law to be upheld, doesn’t mean we can’t respond with sympathy when a 7-year-old girl dies. Some people have responded with callous sentiments in service to their political beliefs. That’s the kind of evil we call out liberals over. Let’s not do it ourselves.
