Dem. Rep. accused DHS secretary of choosing to let migrant kids die: ‘This is intentional.’
Dem. Representative Lauren Underwood: People keep dying, and so this is obviously more than a question of resources. At this point with five kids that have died, 5,000 separated from their families, I feel like and the evidence is really clear that this is intentional. It’s intentional. It’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration and it’s cruel and inhumane.“

Acting Secretary McAleenan shot back: That’s an appalling accusation and our men and women fight hard to protect people in our custody every single day.”
Representative Lauren Underwood (D., Ill.) on Wednesday accused the acting Department of Homeland Security secretary of intentionally implementing border-security policies that would lead to the deaths of migrant children.
During his appearance before the House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan was asked to explain why five children have died in federal custody after being apprehended at the southern border since December.
“These stories are appalling and yet they keep happening,” Underwood said, referring to the recent migrants deaths, as well as reports of inadequate housing and medical care for migrant children apprehended at the border. “Now Congress just provided half a billion dollars in February to address the humanitarian crisis at the border and will soon provide more. Why do these tragedies keep happening?”
McAleenan, who succeeded Kirstjen Nielsen in April, responded that the resources provided by Congress are insufficient to address the record number of asylum seekers, many of whom are women and children, arriving at the border each day. More
Then CBS boosted her claim DHS and CBP purposely killing migrant kids for Trump:
It might help if the Democrats stopped being part of the immigration problem and tried to become part of the solution.
One has to wonder how many times was this child was dragged across the border as someone else’s child?
In other news, Democrats and Liberals love killing babies and fume at the word Hypocrisy.
