Reuters tweeted out a photo with a headline that has captured some attention as it pertains for the border debate:

Reuters’ tweet managed to whip up some criticism of US border policies:
I saved this photo for the time when I need to remember that this is all so very, very. Wrong.

And cue a bunch of “patriots” mocking and being generally awful to her for having the gall to be desperate and want a marginally better life for herself and her kid.

Tragic. This is America. https://t.co/7isGETvXnm

Actually, it’s not America. For people who only went by assumptions based on Reuters’ tweet and didn’t actually read the story, there was some context missing:
It's a Mexican soldier and he stopped them in Mexico https://t.co/isyMRfnr3p

Well, there’s that! Also, the story isn’t quite what the tweet implies:

Reuters’ contribution to the Dem narrative has been noted, however:

My favorite thing is how it's angled low enough not to show any of the flags or ID on his uniform because that would let everyone know this is a Mexican soldier https://t.co/1vfytISOTI

Thankfully this Mexican soldier saved these people from the American concentration camps.

This is an intentionally misleading headline

Technically, she's begging to be let out of Mexico.

It's a Mexican soldier. She probably should've gone to the US embassy in Guatemala before marching her kid 1,500 miles. They could've have told her how to try to immigrate legally and saved her the time and trouble. Crying is not a visa. https://t.co/DvuJeuAJNm

With the next Democrat debates coming up in a matter of days, here’s a closing point:
Mexico is doing more to protect the sovereignty of U.S. than the Democrats. Remember this in 2020. https://t.co/Dyt04nnLd1

That’s something else.
