Response to Jedi Guy (Reply #9)

15. This is a discussion board. If you're bothered by that, go elsewhere.

If the CBP had given her water and food and checked her upon apprehension, they would have said so. Instead, they made up a story that she hadn't had food or water "for days" so they could blame her death on her dad. His lawyers statement pushed back on that, saying that was false. That is a complaint, along with the others I mentioned, that you're ignoring, Jedi Guy. The headline is inaccurate.

We are allowed to make criticisms based on the facts we have, like that CBP appears to have only made the father sign a statement his daughter was healthy (in a language he couldn't understand) rather than actually checking her out. If her temp was 105.7 at 6:30 am, it stands to reason it was elevated 8 hours earlier at 10 pm upon apprehension as well. A simple temperature check would have taken less than a minute but they did not call EMTs until they were loading the bus, and instead of having the EMTs come to where they were loading the bus, they had them meet them 90 minutes from then to the spot they were travelling to. Those are facts we know that are undisputed. Based on those facts, the CBP acted negligently, at best.

No one is saying the CBP let her die "for funsies." People are saying it was the result of neglect at best, racist hate at worst--a misguided attempt to "deter" migrants.

Seems to me YOU are the one making up facts.
