Another child has died as a result of international human trafficking and careless adult aliens who are risking all to enter the country illegally. Sadly, Democrats, leftists, and the liberal news media have politicized the tragedy to blamed President Trump and the U.S. immigration policy.
On Friday, June 14, it was reported that the body of a six-year-old girl from India was found dead from heat stroke in the Arizona desert. According to a medical examiner and the Border Patrol, the child’s mother left her with other migrants to go in search of water.
This fatality is the second of a migrant child in Arizona this year. The death highlights the danger the summer heat can pose to adults and children who are attempting to enter the U.S. illegally through the desert.
Interestingly, there is a growing number of Indian nationals who are entering the United States from Mexico, according to immigration officials. They are among thousands of Africans and Asians who are being smuggled by cartels to make the dangerous journey to enter illegally and then claim asylum.
The deceased girl and her mother were among a group of five Indian nationals brought by human smugglers in a remote border area about 17 miles west of Lukeville, AZ on the U.S./Mexico border. Once dropped off by the smugglers, the aliens were left to fend for themselves in the desert.
Democrats and liberal news media are blaming President Trump and his immigration policies for this tragedy. However, the facts are that these Indian nationals decided in their homeland to undertake this dangerous journey with their children and enter the U.S. illegally, and paid human traffickers to help them break the law.
As cruel as it may sound, American citizens and taxpayers must not feel guilty for protecting their borders, and the tragedies incurred by people attempting to enter illegally with the help of criminal organizations. That is no different than a property owner feeling guilty for protecting their home from a trespasser paid by a criminal gang.
We must control immigration and secure the borders and discourage and punish all illegal immigration. Otherwise, people will continue to risk their lives and break our immigration laws while some politicians use them as tools to further their liberal/leftist agenda. The blood is on their hands, not the citizens.
