On the evening of March 20, a mother and two children were found by US Border agents lying on a bank of the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass, Texas. All three of them were unconscious.
The Federalist reports – The agents, with the help of Eagle Pass Fire Department EMTs, were able to resuscitate the woman and the boy, a toddler, who was hypothermic and semi-conscious by the time Border Patrol got him safely to shore. But the other child, a nine-year-old girl, was dead.
“We tried everything to bring her back. We tried for 20 or 30 minutes,” said Eagle Pass Fire Chief Manuel Mello when I reached him by phone on Monday. The waters of the Rio Grande are cold this time of year, he said, in the low sixties at sundown, and deceptively fast-moving in places.
They pronounced the girl dead right there on the riverbank. The boy was taken to a hospital in San Antonio, and, as far as Mello knows, his mother went with him. Mello said there was no sign of other migrants in the area or a group they might have been with. “It was just those three.”
It’s unclear how the woman, a Guatemalan national, and her children, both Mexican, came to be unconscious on that sandbar. It’s also unclear who flagged down Border Patrol from Piedras Negras, the Mexican town that faces Eagle Pass.

This didn’t happen in a remote area of the border, but close to the two international bridges and ports of entry downtown. So it could have been anyone, possibly even cartel-associated smugglers who have been ferrying migrants across the river at a feverish pace these past two months.
On December 26, 2018, an 8-year-old Guatemalan boy died in the custody of US Customs and Border Protection. Without any knowledge of the facts surrounding the illegal alien child’s death, Hollywood activists like Allyssa Milano immediately blamed our US Customs agents for her death:
Another child has died in US custody.
Imagine if you were a parent who felt they had to travel thousands of miles to keep their child out of harms way. And then your child dies in the custody of the country who was going to be his salvation?
This is a humanitarian crisis. https://t.co/KkPozUd6Fp

On December 17, 2018, a 7-year-old girl died of dehydration after she was picked up by US Border agents and taken into custody.
The Daily Beast wrote an article about the death of the 7-year-old illegal alien titled:
Jakelin Caal’s Death Was Medically Cruel and Utterly Preventable
Sam Stein, a far-left contributor to MSNBC and Politico, tweeted the Daily Beast article about the 7-yr-old girl who died after her father dragged her through the desert in an effort to enter the United States illegally, as opposed to applying for asylum or, better yet, citizenship. In addition to the completely baseless article, Stein also tweeted some of his own commentaries, where he blamed the Trump administration for not giving medical personnel more access to the illegal aliens and the facilities where they were housed.
In light of the news of an 8-yr-old Guatemalan child dying in CBP custody, re-upping this oped about how insane and even criminal it is that medical personnel are not being given more access to these people and facilities. https://t.co/dVSQ8xj0Oz

The author of the Daily Beast article, John Harlow, is a Los Angeles pediatrician and an advocate for immigrant and refugee families. Dr. Harlow blasted the Trump administration, demanding they “must give medical professionals access to migrants and immigration detention centers now.”
Harlow wrote: And no matter what equivocations are now employed to explain away the death of Jakelin Caal, it is morally necessary to acknowledge that this is how she died.
It’s been 11 days since the death of the 9-year-old Guatemalan girl in Texas, yet curiously, Dr. Harlow hasn’t written a word about her cruel drowning death.
Even more curious is the outspoken Politico reporter and Biden fan-boy Sam Stein, who, like others in the mainstream media, has completely ignored the drowning death of the 9-year-old girl. On the day of her drowning, Stein tweeted about his dissatisfaction with UConn losing in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
I'm. Not. Pleased. About. Uconn

We scoured his Twitter account and found that Stein has not tweeted a single word about the tragic drowning death of the 9-year-old Guatemalan girl. Why the silence? Does her death not matter because it happened under Biden’s reckless border crisis?
The story, in and of itself, is heartbreaking, but even more heartbreaking is that the death of the 9-year-old girl could have been avoided if Democrats weren’t offering citizenship to illegal aliens who make it across the border in exchange for votes, and the media wasn’t covering up their crimes.
