The deaths of two Guatemalan migrant children have renewed public outrage over the Trump administration's “zero tolerance” border policies. Trump blamed Democrats for the deaths. In a series of angry tweets, he exploited those tragedies to justify his insistence on a border wall as the government shutdown entered its second week. “Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally,” he wrote on Twitter. “They can’t. If we had a Wall, they wouldn’t even try!”

The father of the child who died REFUSED TREATMENT the first time he was approached by border security. It has absolutely nothing, that is NOTHING, to do with Trump's zero tolerance policies. I wish democrats could read so then they would know this. Our country is still under Obama's immigration policies. But Obama is the teflon president among the liberals. He's the worst president in recent history, but the liberals salivate over him.

Our southern border needs to be secured. It's common sense. Unless you like substances like Fentanyl coming over the border. My son died from Fentanyl last year. All it takes is a trace of this substance to kill you. Secure our border and build the wall. Not securing our border is immoral. Then maybe parents will stop risking their children's lives taking them thousands of miles on foot. How foolish are these migrants?

Amy...

Hey. Jaco Booyens directed a film called 8 Days about his sister, who was trafficked. His research indicates that roughly one in three children (30 percent) who cross the border illegally ends up in child prostitution, child pornography or some other, possibly worse, situation.

It appears that bringing a child into America illegally provides entre'e for some of the adult illegals to gain economic traction quickly in America, as children can be pimped out on a continual basis, which (sad but true) some illegals have been known to do even with their very own children.

You are so blind.

Why is Trump "continuing" Obama's policy? He tried to abolish all the other Obama's policies.

I am sure that children coming across from Mexico carry loads of Fentanyl.

Many children coming across the southern border from Mexico are being trafficked. You are the one who is turning a blind eye to this.


We need a wall so there will be forced points of entry so these migrants can be processed. This is what the American people want for our security. It's ironic that the American people are being so heavily screened at airports to 'prevent terrorism'; yet our open borders invite terrorists to cross at will. The democrats have no common sense and are not concerned with 'terrorism' or they would vote to protect our borders.

Terrorists don't come from Mexico.

The "processing" killed two children.

Trafficking has nothing to do with our security.

Our borders are safe, in particular Mexican border.

There are terrorists coming over our southern border. They don't have to be from Mexico. So do you think that trafficking is okay because it doesn't threaten your security. I don't consider that a humane position.


The father of the one girl who died said that it was not Homeland Security's fault that she died. He refused care for her the first time they asked him. He said that he hadn't given her water for some time. It's dangerous taking one's children on a thousand mile hike through the desert and crossing rivers by foot. Or is this unimportant to you also because it doesn't threaten your security?

That's the whole idea. People would more hesitant to risk their children's lives and health dragging them thousands of miles by foot if they knew that they couldn't get in illegally. They should arrest these parents for child abuse when they do make it to the border.

But the Left doesn't care about these children as long as they don't threaten their security. All the Left cares about is obstructing our President's agenda to secure the border.

That is the whole idea.

Republicans don't mind torturing and letting children die if that will discourage their parents from coming to the US.

Disgusting and not defensible.

For decent people.

Was it child abuse when your ancestors boarded the ship to go to America with their family?

Name one known terrorist that came "over the southern border".

A lie and an invention.

Trafficking problem can be helped and should be, but that is not what is being done and it is a hypocrisy to invoke that as a reason.

The girl did not die "on a (dangerous) thousand mile hike through the desert and crossing rivers by foot" but in the dangerous hands of a Republican US Administration.
