Mother says migrant boy was not sick on trek to US


She said her son reported he was doing well every time that he and his father called home during their trek. She said the last time she spoke with Felipe he was in Mexico at the U.S. border and said he was eating chicken.


This is consistent with the view that the kid got the flu in one of the overcrowded and cold government facilities.

1. So Trump didn't just lie in his tweet about this.

He always lies. What's even worse is that he lied to blame the parents for their son's death, saying they had denied him water.

Flu is contracted very quickly in close quarters like the detention center.

2. I am literally sick about this.

And the cruelty, deliberate and cold, of this misadministration.

3. He had to get the flu in the US.

The incubation period ranges from 1-4 days, but averages 2. He was in custody on the 18th, and showed symptoms on the 23rd. The key factor in his death is the medical facility identifying a fever of 103 but declaring he only had a common cold.
