Words matter. That lengthy header is the truth of a story that has spread like wildfire on social media and of course network news. The left as usual has crafted propaganda to push the narrative that this poor girl, Jakelin Caal Maquin from Guatemala, fell ill AFTER being under Border Patrol custody, and then sadly died from severe dehydration.
Spot-on questions from @KatyTurNBC about Jackeline Caal, the 7 year old girl who died in Border Patrol custody:
➡️ Doesn’t the U.S. have a responsibility to care for the health of *any* child in its custody?
➡️ Couldn’t a helicopter have arrived to save Jackeline’s life? pic.twitter.com/BA62u29iTr

The truth of the matter is Jakelin’s father (where’s mom?) made the decision to be pawns of open borders activists where he hauled her over 2K miles unprepared for the harsh journey at the least for not bringing enough water! By the time Jakelin and her father reached the US-Mexico border she was severely dehydrated, symptoms allegedly were not showing. After illegally entering the US in a remote area the two, along with 160 others, were apprehended by US Border Agents. While in custody, for approx 8 hours at a facility not staffed with medical personnel, Border Agents were alerted of Jakelin’s condition around 5 am and she was given medical attention at 6:30am and then airlifted to medical facility, but attempts to save her failed. What’s key to understand here is you don’t die from being dehydrated for a few hours. It takes days to die from dehydration, approx 5-8 depending on the situation. If anyone is to blame it is her father for dragging her across the desert unprepared.
That is the gist of it, but do you hear that from Hillary Clinton, Rep Joe Kennedy, Alyssa Milano and the never-ending conga-line of leftists politicizing her death?
There are no words to capture the horror of a seven-year-old girl dying of dehydration in U.S. custody. What’s happening at our borders is a humanitarian crisis. https://t.co/8KZeynGjIv

What this girl + her father must have survived to reach our shores. The things he must have told her in the darkest moments — about a country worth the journey, a place where the suffering would stop. Instead, this. Devastating. https://t.co/ggbt0pNjiS

A 7 year old died of shock and dehydration under U.S. government custody last week.
CBP must be held responsible for this human rights violation, and DHS Secretary Nielsen must step down immediately. https://t.co/vug7VFKP4Z #FamiliesBelongTogether #DefundHate #FamilySeparation

Seeking asylum is LEGAL under U.S. & international law.
We’ve abandoned compassion and instead have turned to reckless brutality.
My heart breaks for this little one and many more like her 😢💔https://t.co/srPLlExchM

NO. What you’re hearing instead is about the “humanitarian crisis” on the border and how “we must do something”. The left blames the Border Patrol and Pres Trump for the crisis and Jakelin’s death, but they weren’t the ones who told her father to drag her 2K miles from Guatemala. They’re not responsible for her father being unprepared to care for his own child. They DID NOT create a humanitarian crisis, where children and adults are getting severely ill from lack of food and water.
The truth of the matter is Clinton, Kennedy, Milano, and the rest of the open borders activists created this problem. They want bodies found in the desert, floating in the Rio Grande and most definitely under US custody. They want that shock value to attack Pres Trump, the GOP, their supporters to advance their agenda for amnesty, an open border, stopping the construction of the border wall which results in votes for democrats, because they equal money, power, and control over all of us!
You’ll never see any of these bleeding heart liberals cross the border bringing food and water to the migrants begging them to not make the dangerous journey across the border. You’ll never see any of them offering to house illegal aliens in their own homes, feeding, clothing, providing medical care, educating and spending money. They are hypocrites of the highest order, pro-illegal immigration so long as they don’t have to spend a dime of their own money or have anyone setting up camp in their yards!
