Next month she would have turned two years old. She jumped back into the river to try and save her father. Since we've closed ports of entry, asylum seekers are being forced to make more dangerous crossings. A few years ago, Europe was shamed by the drowning death of another child refugee from Syria, Aylan Kurdi. The way we're treating immigrants now, I'm not sure America can feel shame anymore.
I have to question your motivation here.This is finger pointing at its worst, in my opinion.If you want to blame someone then start with the father.These people accepted the risks (which included putting his baby in peril).I prefer not to play the blame game here, but if we are going to do it as with anything that puts children in peril it begins with THE PARENTS.
El Salvador is not the only country with people in dire straights.There are people in Africa facing dire circumstances and they can't jump on a plane and come here.They must go through a process and if they can't provide the necessary documentation they just can't.Why is it these immigrants get to circumvent those laws and African and Asian asylum seekers can't?They don't have the luck of geography?
That seems unfair to me and no one ever thinks twice.
This story is SAD.However, I don't see where anyone should feel outrage toward ICE, the US government, the Mexican government, Trump or any other combination of targets past the mother and father.The border has been overrun and both Mexico and the US cannot accommodate this massive migration.Who gets the blame here?Trump?ICE?America itself?
