Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

"I'm here today because I want to put an end to this," Yazmin Juárez told members of Congress tearfully on Wednesday. Lawmakers listened as Juárez testified about the preventable death of her daughter in 2018, weeks after they were released from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody.

I think that kids die in CBP custody all the time. They have no incentive to report it; Trump has no motivation to know. Look for the bodies buried.

I don't know about "sin". The Gawds is funny about these kind of things.

He, or She in His or Her infinite Wisdom, kills children all the time.

But, it is clearly a crime against Humanity. It is crime because this is exactly what was intended. Punishment.

And it is a crime that could have been prevented. Congress is as guilty now as the President for allowing it to continue.

I guess the mother who dragged her toddler across a wilderness and the hazards incurred along the way bears no responsibility what so ever.

Only in that she should have known that the US Border Patrol would neglect and mistreat her and her child once they were in custody.

The toddler was healthy when it was processed into US custody. Previous potential hazards (that did not cause any harm) are irrelevant.

But, she SHOULD have know that Republicans are cruel and heartless, and that they would intentionally inflict life-threatening hazards on her and her child once she got here (to try to act as a deterrent for other people who might try to come here).

Though, in her defense, she may have thought that the rumors of cruelty to immigrants by Republicans and the Trump Administration were just rumors and that they could not possibly be true. Too bad she paid for that (misplaced) faith and optimism toward the moral character of the USA with her child's life.

Judge her harshly because you know all about what motivated her to risk her own life and that of her child. Hope global climate change doesn't make the place where you live uninhabitable. It is making her nation uninhabitable. So, if she would have stayed they could have both died without even trying to survive such a horrible trip.

The Americans I grew up with would have probably compared her to our own ancestors who drug their families across an ocean and then across a wilderness, even deserts to get to a place they could inhabit. But these folks are brown so many of today's "patriots" think it's ok if they die on their journey or are turned away at the border. Would we have Christianity today if Mary and Joseph had been turned away when they wanted to escape to Egypt so that Herrod's troops wouldn't kill the baby Jesus?

The irony of our immigration laws is that Texas was part of Mexico when Americans started crossing their border and taking over their land but today we put people who do that in jail, take away their children and let some of them die.

Danni,

Is there any part of you that understands that we cant take in all of Central America? Is there any part of you that understands these people are low skilled any they are going to have a devastating impact on minorities and the minimum wage?

#8 | Posted by danni, Learn some history, the Anglo settlements were started with the permission and encouragement of the Mexican government. Texas was mostly empty with the exception of a lot of Comanche. Mexico could not get their citizens to settle there, it was too dangerous. So the Mexicans could claim areas they didn't control or occupy? Bull.

Responsibility for "the preventable death of her daughter in 2018, weeks after they were released from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody?"

I'd put the preponderance of the evidence on the lack of medical care, which is probably an Eighth Amendment violation as well.

You?

Usually I find sustenance in the tears of progressives/socialists/communists but crocodile tears are as lacking in nutrition as all the nothing-burgers that have been offered up recently.

No, that was when we had a Democrat in charge, remember you could just call us racist for pointing out this fiasco and completely deny it.

Don't worry once a Democrat is President the border will be utopia again, just like the homeless problem.

That's like claiming its not the shooters fault, but the fault of the hospital that couldn't save him.

Let's parse this one.

The shooter is the people who failed to treat her respiratory infection.

Shouldn't we be moving them to Dannifornia... or some other sanctuary state?

The sort of borders the Trumpists want will only work if they are militarized borders, and fortified borders.

The Trump Wall was always inadequate for their purposes. It's just a passive expense that won't do much of anything much of the time.

Seigfried line without the tank traps is more their speed.

There's a Trump contributor out there anxious to build it.

American "conservative evangelicals" don't actually believe in Jesus. They only believe in Old Testament "justice" and punishment, not Grace. They're color blind: they can't read the red letters.

No sno. The infection she got did NOT just start when they were captured. She brought it with her. You are blaming the hospital. You really don't know anything.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
