9. Oh give me a break.

He stated to the consul that he has no complaints about the way they were treated, and thanked everyone involved for trying to save his daughter. You, though, apparently know better than he does what he thinks and how he feels, despite what he apparently told the consul. Have you been in touch with Mr. Caal, then?

And by the way, it states in the article that Spanish in his second language, so I should think he can communicate with the consul just fine. After all, he somehow communicated with his lawyers as well, didn't he?

She had a fever of 105.7 around 6:30 am, when they arrived at Lordsburg. There's nothing to indicate that she had that high of a fever when they took her into custody. Her father told CBP that Jakelin was sick and vomiting, and they advised the station that they were coming in with a child who was ill. Should they have immediately loaded her onto a life flight because she was vomiting? When it later became apparently how ill she truly was, they put her on a life flight and sent her to a hospital.

There's no indication that they didn't give her food and water upon apprehension, it's simply your assumption that they didn't.

And "legitimate criticisms" are not, in fact, legitimate when you don't know the facts. No one who commented on that thread knew the facts of the matter, they just simply assumed that CBP were sadists who let a little girl die for funsies.

Criticisms will be legitimate after an investigation has determined the full set of facts, so it can weighed and judged whether anyone made a mistake or acted improperly. If someone screwed up, then I fully believe they should be held to account. Until that's determined, however, all your "legitimate criticisms" are pure conjecture and surmise, otherwise known as the Blame Game.
