A 3-year-old boy from Mexico died while crossing the desert southwest of Tucson with his mother, according to the U.S. Border Patrol.
The boy's body was left behind by the unidentified woman, who later told border agents about his death, authorities said Tuesday.
First of all, this is tragic. A 3 year old child is dead, mainly because of the irresponsible behavior of his mother. My prayers go out to the family.
If this story circulates, there is no doubt to loony left will spin it in favor of open borders. I can hear it already:
"This poor child died because his mother was searching for a better life"
"If only these people didn’t have to be so sneaky about coming into our country"
"America’s evil caused this boy’s death"
"This is Bush’s fault"
Shame on anyone who does this. The Senate has already voted in favor of a fence across the border. The fact is, if we already had a fence, this boy would still be alive. No one can deny that. And if there was a fence, and this mother chose the apply for citizenship and legal immigration rather than sneaking through the desert, then I would welcome her into this country with open arms.
We can’t rely on people to obey the law as this case proves some people are willing to risk the lives of their children to skirt the system. It’s shameful and sad.
Build the fence. Dry up the job market for these illegals by punishing those who hire them. Immediately deport any illegal immigrant who is detained, arrested or already serving time in prison. Basically, ENFORCE THE LAW. That’s how this is solved.
I’m interested to find out what happens to this woman who is currently in custody. I’ll go out on a limb and say that she is allowed to stay in America. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if she became the Cindy Sheehan of the ‘open borders’ crowd.
