National media has been giving a lot of coverage to the tragic story of a seven year old migrant girl, Jakelin Caal who died within hours of being discovered and taken into custody by the Border Patrol after she and her father entered illegally with a large group of other migrants.
And some of the media has been blaming the Border Patrol and trying to attack the Trump administration for her death, despite no evidence that the Border Patrol did anything wrong.
And now that narrative is going to take a big hit because the father of the little girl is talking, according to CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Guatemalan Consul Tekandi Paniagua told CNN that the father of Jakelin has “no complaints about how Border Patrol agents treated him and his daughter” and that the agents did everything they possibly could to help the girl on the bus.
The father also confirmed to the Consul that the DHS timeline was correct, that Jakelin did not show any signs of distress until about 5 a.m. then deteriorated rapidly when they were placed on the bus to ride from the border checkpoint to the border patrol station where the nearest help from the remote area was 95 miles away.
Shameful that people on the left like Beto O’Rourke, Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton all attacked the Border Patrol and the Trump administration over it. O’Rourke even blamed “the wall” for killing people.
How about Democrats discourage people from taking such dangerous journeys and following the legal path so this doesn’t happen again? Rather than encouraging this dangerous situation and having more children put in danger?
