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.
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

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.

Ooh Alyssa where were you when children were dying in government custody before Trump ?

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

Imagine taking your child across several countries where illness like enterovirus and tuberculosis are rampant, compromising his immune system with unhygienic conditions, little water and food, close quarters with others, etc.
Then some has been using his death for propaganda https://t.co/w069ipDGIk

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.
The child was sick when they picked him and his father up. It was thought to be a cold then he got worse. The is not mistreatment. That sadly happens everyday. Get off your damn liberal high horse and look at facts for once.

He died in a US hospital getting treatment for whatever pre existing condition and/or trauma he suffered from his parents subjecting him to the harsh and long journey. May he Rest In Peace. How sad is it that you exploit this tragedy.

I note you didn't share the care the child was given before death.
Is that because you are ignorant of it, or because you are cynically USING A DEAD KID for your agenda?

CBP report shows 25+ welfare checks for this child between Dec 18-24
On Dec 24, 1900 hours, the child appeared to be nauseous and vomited
His father ???????? further medical assistance as the child had been feeling better
Your move, Alyssahttps://t.co/OO3XRkUdFO
— Katica (@GOPPollAnalyst) December 26, 2018
Imagine actually reading the article where it says CBP rendered aid and the the father “declined further medical assistance”

If only this child had been separated from his family he would be alive

Yes those parents who directly contributed to their kids death should feel awful. Thanks for pointing that out. Now go on about your day and ?

The death of a child is a tragedy and his parents must be devastated, but why is it the fault of US officials? Has a cause of death been determined? Medical assistance was provided by a hospital, but the boy’s condition worsened quickly. This is terrible, but why assign blame?
— PEGGIE DEMARCO (@PEGOMYHEART712) December 26, 2018
Because that's what liberals do. Everything is Trump's fault. They know no other way to phrase anything.
— Jeff Crawford (@JT_Crawdaddy) December 26, 2018
The child's parent rejected further treatment when Americans offered it! How is that OUR fault?
Also — are you suggesting, @AlyssaMilano, that American authorities should have expanded autocratic powers to force parents to relinquish children & deny parents' freedom of choice?
— Joe the Dissident (@joethepatriotic) December 26, 2018
Two dead children is a tragedy, no doubt. Just curious why you didn’t you tweet that it was a “humanitarian crisis” when the last Administration placed over 68,000 unaccompanied alien children directly with human traffickers? Even @snopes can’t deny it: https://t.co/7rix4SaTpQ pic.twitter.com/l947zWuSBb

Imagine being the terrible parent who traveled thousands of miles, putting their child in harms way the entire trip, all the while rejecting help from the country they were traveling through so they could break the law to enter another country?

They could of taken asylum in Mexico when it was offered, but piss poor parents decided to say no and keep going.

Imagine you are Alyssa Milano, a former child star, who has so little value to her own family that she takes on the pain and plight of every third world country with zero understanding of geopolitics and economics.
