Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 20, 2019

The U.S. government says a 16-year-old Guatemalan died Monday at a Border Patrol station in South Texas, the fifth death of a migrant child since December. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that Border Patrol apprehended the teenager in South Texas' Rio Grande Valley on May 13.

Works for me, since no one has said these kids would still be alive if only Border Patrol had better facilities.

The only fault the regressive left sees is the Border Patrol or ICE. But those individuals did not drags a kid across a desert, let them drink bad water, house them in crowded shacks with dozens of strangers, let them suffer from exposure, and watch them get very sick before they were apprehended. Kids are separated for a good reason, about 1/3 are not related to the adults they are found with. That is why they do DNA paternity tests now. This means that we are encouraging human marketing of the most vulnerable. Kidnapping is a big problem in Mexico, some are teen girls taken for the sex trade, some are held for ransom, and some are just children taken as a free ticket into this country. Let reality seep in.

Poll Shows Startling Number of Guatemalans Wishing to Leave Country

A survey by Prensa Libre published on Thursday found that 39 percent of Guatemalans intend to leave the country. Of those who said they wanted to leave, 85 percent picked the U.S. as the country they hoped to land in. Results also showed how emigration to the U.S. has become such an integral part of their lives, with 57 percent of respondents saying they have friends or relatives already living in America.

On one hand it is obviously quite a journey to get here for many, and it will take its toll on the young and infirm. They are also coming from places with a low standard of living and it's probably difficult to pin their deaths on one thing.

On the other hand, i have no doubt that Trump is doing and would do everything within his power to deprive these people of proper care and that he sees their suffering and death as a potential deterrent to future migrants (as with child separation).

Last month the crowd here was claiming it's at an all-time low.

"and he does nothing but kill children for sport."
This is nothing but radical exaggeration and hyperbole.

"Now tell me that evidence doesn't point to an administration who is creating a problem to get votes."
Trump is responding to a ongoing problem that continues to explode due to immigration activists, human traffickers, and drug mules.
Democrats refuse to engage in meaningful and responsible legal immigration solutions.

Instead, they encourage and champion desperate third-world peoples to flood the border and create a crisis to force the issue. This is nothing more than creating a market for cheap illegal labor, and modern slavery.

There is little here for them other than a life of poverty, hard labor, sub wages, dangerous workplaces with no training and safeguards, exposure to harmful chemicals, 12hr/7 day-per-week schedules and worse.

Yes, Democrats Are Now The Party Of Open Borders

7/19/2018

Illegal Immigration: We've been seeing a lot of articles these days defending Democrats against charges that they are for open borders. But recent events show that the party has, in fact, morphed into one that reflexively opposes virtually any attempt to secure the southern border.

For years, Democrats tried to portray themselves as tough on border security, even as they argued for amnesty for all illegal immigrants currently in the country. Sometimes they slipped, as Hillary Clinton did when, in a paid speech in 2013, she talked about her dream of open borders. (She quickly tried to explain away her comment, once it

Hillary Clinton in 2013 said she dreams of a "common market with open trade and open borders," saying that economic opportunity in the U.S. would grow as a result.

Her comments to Latin American bankers were revealed late Friday by WikiLeaks, which appears to have obtained excerpts of some of Mrs. Clinton's paid speeches in the days following her tenure at the State Department. The excerpts were found in Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's emails, and while Mr. Podesta refused to verify the documents, he also did not deny their authenticity.

In addition to downplaying banks' role in the 2008 economic collapse, admitting she's out of touch with the middle class and conceding she has "both a public and a private position" on Wall Street reform, Mrs. Clinton also bluntly said she believes open borders would benefit the entire Western hemisphere.

Hillary saying "My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders", isn't actually a call for open borders. It's a long term goal, along with a hemispheric common market and open trade.

Its not a call for open borders and mass migration. As you deplorables like to pretend.

Also. Remind me of what Hillary's role in the DNC is again? Honorable mention?

"About 30%" could be 25.1%, for all we know about their rounding.

It will treat every person with dignity, fix the family visa backlog, uphold the rule of law, protect our borders and national security, and bring millions of hardworking people into the formal economy."

So with a few wiggle words, "protect our borders and national security" they can say they are not for open borders while with a wink the say treat EVERY PERSON, fix the family backlog (let them all in) and brazenly will bring in millions of hard working people. De facto open borders.
