Lauren Underwood Accuses DHS Of Intentionally Killing Migrant Children

The news of a 6th child dying while in DHS custody sent the media and Democrats into a tizzy. Fingers of blame were once again pointed at the Border Patrol and Trump for what happened. Freshman Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (D-Ill) went even further by accusing DHS of intentionally killing migrant children who crossed the border illegally.

I gasped just as loudly as everyone else did in that room! Here’s the relevant quote of her atrocious remarks.

“”With five kids that have died … the evidence is really clear that this is intentional, it’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration and it’s cruel and inhumane,” the freshman Democrat, who is a nurse, told McAleenan.”

While Underwood didn’t outright claim that the Trump Administration is directly murdering children, her statement certainly implied that that is the case.

Understandably Kevin McAleenan was having none of it. Nor were the Republicans on the committee. With a 9-7 vote, Underwood’s remarks were stricken from the record.

In the exchange Underwood doubled down by saying that it is the Trump Administration’s immigration policies that are leading to preventable deaths of children. Oh? OH REALLY?

Let’s examine the newest case of the El Salvadoran child who, as we now know, died last fall.

“Mark Weber, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), said in a statement to CBS News that the girl had a history of congenital heart defects. Weber said when she entered the care of an Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) facility in San Antonio, Texas, on March 4, 2018, she was in a “medically fragile” state.

“Following a surgical procedure, complications left the child in a comatose state. She was transported to a nursing facility in Phoenix, Arizona for palliative care in May after release from a San Antonio hospital,” Weber said. “On September 26, she was transferred to an Omaha, Neb., nursing facility to be closer to her family. On September 29, the child was transported to Children’s Hospital of Omaha where she passed due to fever and respiratory distress.”” [Emphasis Added]

Stop and read the above once more. That child, one with a history of congenital heart defects, was drug through TWO countries by her parents. Her death was preventable! Yet her parents CHOSE to put her health at risk! But we are supposed to blame the Border Patrol, DHS, and Trump?

I. Think. Not.

Just this week, one border facility was shut down while at least 30 illegals were quarantined because of influenza. Did Underwood ever stop to think that many of the illnesses that the illegal immigrants are dealing with are because of the unsanitary conditions they endured while trekking through two or more countries? No because Trump BAD!

Never mind the fact that this was and is the exact same policies that the Obama Administration put in place. We are dealing with a case of Obama GOOD! Trump Kills Children! here.

Lauren Underwood wants to blame the Trump Administration, yet chooses to ignore the very real facts about the border crisis. She chose to ignore the fact that the Border resources are spread so thin, that no one can keep up.

Facts don’t matter to Lauren. Her chosen narrative of Trump kills children! does.

No Lauren, what is clear is that the adults who are dragging these young children through multiple countries in unsanitary conditions are the ones who are putting the mental and physical health of the children at risk.

Overtly implying that policies, implemented by the Obama Administration, are killing children thus implying the members of the Border Patrol and thus Trump are murderers is heinous on every level.

    And this is the idiocy. That should read: “she was transferred to an El Salvadoran nursing facility to be closer to her family.”

    Yet her parents CHOSE to put her health at risk!
    DING! (Though I would say “life at risk”, as her health was already poor.)

    109k migrants were encountered at the border in April
    And every last one of them should have been told “If you cross this line (the border) you’re going to be put in a tent city until we can schedule your bus ride home. Don’t b*tch about the food or the accommodations – you should be lucky we’re not following the Apache method and simply staking you out over anthills. Oh, and if you get disruptive or commit crimes or decide to be other than a sterling guest in our home, your remaining time will be chained to a metal post, eating gruel from a straw and your ride home will be in handcuffs on the roof of the bus. Now get in line for processing or stay the h*ll over there and Mexico can deal with you.”

    what is clear is that the adults – a HUGE minority of whom are NOT their parents – who are dragging these young children through multiple countries in unsanitary conditions are the ones who are putting the mental and physical health of the children at risk.
    Minor but important fix.

    Underwood is one that shall be pilloried when the counter-revolution breaks forth. Others will not be so lucky.

    Just When you think the last disgusting thing said by a socialist politician lowered the bar and could not be any lower along comes this turd.

      Both Trump and Obama tried to get Congress to change the immigration laws to discourage people from coming to the US. What has Congress done instead? Gripe at the CBP for not doing magic with the mess that Congress has still not fixed.

      Obama used his pen and made it worse with DACA.

      Trump has tried to stay within the law and has been told again and again that his efforts were not legal by liberal judges. And yet he keeps on trying and sometimes makes a difference.

    Lauren, how many children have you murdered? How many abortions have you had? And, even if you’ve had none, how many have you been an accomplice to based on your support of abortion?

    Murderers, such as yourself, should be careful about making the charge, “Murderer!”
