“Our sympathies are with this little girl and her family. This is a senseless death driven by cartels who are profiting from putting lives at risk.” – Tucson Chief Patrol Agent Roy Villareal
When you incentivize third world migrants with open borders and freebies, and then they die trying to make it through impossible terrain, you have blood on your hands. The Democrats have refused to change the asylum loopholes that encourage illegal immigration and therefore have caused an increase in human smuggling that caused the death of this 7-year-old girl.
According to a report from the CBP, Tucson Border Patrol agents came across two women from India who said they had been traveling with another woman and two children that they had become separated from. The girl had been traveling with the group that had been dropped by a smuggler who ordered them to cross in a dangerous location. The temperature, according to the National Weather Service, was 108 degrees.
Border Patrol agents began searching the area for the three lost people. Several hours later the sheriff’s department discovered the body of the 7-year-old.
The search continued for the remaining two people, but the Border Patrol only found footprints.
How does a 7-year-old from India get to the U.S./Mexico border? For that matter, how do Bangladeshi or Congolese illegals get to our southern border? The answer is that there is a huge smuggling network that makes millions off of the illegals.
If the Democrats worked with Republicans for a bipartisan solution to close asylum loopholes, this would stop the mass migration to our border. The problem is that the Democrats don’t want to stop it and then are trying to place blame on Republicans for the overflow conditions at the border.
