Death on the Border

Our immigration laws need to be fixed before more potential immigrants die. Too bad the Democrats prefer to prioritize politics over… well… everything else.

On Monday, the bodies were discovered on the bank of the river near Matamoros, Mexico, across from Brownsville, Texas, and several hundred yards from where they had tried to cross, just a half-mile from an international bridge.

The southern U.S. border has seen a massive surge of illegal crossings in recent months, with more than 144,000 apprehensions in May alone.

Many of the migrants are from Central America, often in family units. Due to a patchwork of legal restrictions, Central Americans who cross the border illegally with children and request asylum are frequently quickly released into the interior to await a court hearing.

    It absolutely boggles my mind to see the left liberals up in arms over the picture of this dead two year old child and her murderer.  Hell these are the same asshat non-thinkers that would be completely supportive of that mother choosing to murder that baby girl just 2 years ago… but now they blame Trump and Republicans.

    Jason, or as Mayor Pete put it:

    The Republican party likes to cloak itself in the language of religion. Now, our party doesn’t talk about that as much, largely for a very good reason which was because we are committed to the separation of church and state, and we stand for people of any religion and people of no religion. But, we should call out hypocrisy when we see it, and for a party that associates itself with Christianity, to say that it is okay to suggest that god would smile on the division of families at the hands of federal agents, that god would condone putting children in cages has lost all claim to ever use religious language again.

    The father crossed the river with daughter, leaving mom on other side.   Lwft the 23 month daughter on U.S. side of bank!   Proceeded to return to get mom.    23 month jumped back in to follow dad.    That is inexcusable as a parent!    If Democrats would allow resources at ports of entry, this may have been avoided.

    Your post is repeating disgusting liberal hypocrisy ad exploitation of horrible parents!

    What does your Bible say about how foreigners should be treated?

    Would He smile on the concentration camps?

    “If Democrats would allow resources at ports of entry, this may have been avoided”.

    What exactly do you mean by this statement?

    Judging by your name I guessing you aren’t Native American.  Did your ancestors have any harrowing experiences when the came over from Europe?  Any relatives perish on the voyage?  Rather than lament the fact that the deceased father had to resort to crossing the river to get to a better life with his family you blame the Democrats.  You truly have a miserable world view.
