Donald Trump Blamed Democrats for Deaths of Immigrant Children Detained by Border Patrol

Donald Trump lashed out at Democrats for refusing to budge on funding his border wall and even went so far as to blame them for the deaths of two immigrant children under the care of Customs and Border Protection agents. Unfortunately for Trump, the deaths of the two children happened under his watch because he is ultimately responsible for the actions taken by Federal agencies that fall under his authority.

Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally. They can’t. If we had a Wall, they wouldn’t even try! The two children in question were very sick before they were given over to Border Patrol. The father of the young girl said it was not their fault, he hadn’t given her water in days. Border Patrol needs the Wall and it will all end. They are working so hard & getting so little credit!
