We must not have a photo yet of the 8-year-old Guatemalan boy who died in the custody of U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, as Alyssa Milano is still using the photo of Jakelin Caal as her Twitter avatar, which changes often as does the attention of progressives to social issues.

Morally superior journalists might be throwing around terms like “concentration camps” today, but we’ve noticed that most progressives seem to keep President Trump out of their tweets about conditions at the border — most likely aware that the previous president also kept children in cages and saw migrant children die under his watch. Best to leave Trump out of it than to have to defend the light bringer.

Is it a humanitarian crisis? It might be, but the responsibility doesn’t like with the United States, which did everything it could to save Jakelin and also sent the Guatemalan boy to the hospital twice for treatment, where he died. It’s tragic, but people get sick and die — children get sick and die — especially when their illnesses aren’t diagnosed in time. He was lucky to be treated in a U.S. hospital.

Migrants died before this? Why didn’t we hear about this on the news?

Mexico did what it could to house the thousands in the migrant caravan, but the sheer number of migrants who had banded together overwhelmed the makeshift shelter there, where aid workers said that lice infestations and respiratory infections were rampant, and there were at least four cases of chicken pox found in the unsanitary conditions.
