As clueless protesters marched across the country to demand parents and children caught crossing the border illegally be detained together after Trump already said they could be, ICE agents braved the scorching heat of our Southern deserts and came across something absolutely tragic.
If you could sum up everything wrong with the open border policies and raging human smuggling industry at our border, this story would about do it.
The Daily Wire reports:
United States Customs and Border Patrol in Arizona relayed a tragic tale on Twitter Sunday.
While on patrol Saturday afternoon, CBP agents came across a tiny 6-year-old Costa Rican boy crouched on the side of the road, clutching a dirty backpack. The child told Border Patrol that his “uncle” — likely a smuggler or human trafficker — had abandoned him in the extreme heat.
“Agents discovered the child west of Lukeville, Arizona and just north of the border, in temperatures over 100 degrees,” a CBP agent spokesperson said in an official press release. “The child told agents he was dropped off by his uncle and that Border Patrol would pick him up. He added that he was on his way to see his mother in the U.S.”

While the left seems to suddenly care about children and families, ICE agents have had to witness heartbreaking situations like this for years, as Obama-era immigration policies opened up our border for literally tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors to flow in across the border, sent by parents willing to risk their own child’s life to immigrate to the US.
The little boy was rescued the same day that Trump reminded the world on Twitter how much Obama-era policies encouraged dangerous behavior, just like this.
When people come into our Country illegally, we must IMMEDIATELY escort them back out without going through years of legal maneuvering. Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world. Republicans want Strong Borders and no Crime. Dems want Open Borders and are weak on Crime!

At the end of the day, the Democrats are, sickeningly, using the children who cross the border either alone or with their parents as pawns in their open border agenda to weaken America and keep the Democrat plantation stocked with dependent voters.
They don’t care at all at the actual risk of bodily harm or death so many children are faced with when predatory child smugglers or traffickers waltz across the border with them.
Let’s keep these poor children in prayer and continue to expose the blatant leftist double-standard. We’re not falling for their propaganda–we know the real face of what happens at the border.
