    A pathetic reminder of the disgraceful manner in which the U.S.A. is treating immigrants

    Why then wouldn't they emigrate to another country where they will be treated better?

    There is a difference between immigrant and illegal immigrant.

    Maybe if liberals supported rule-of-law and opposed porous borders, they wouldn't be encouraged to enter the U.S. illegally.
    Maybe if liberals didn't support illegal immigration, and instead supported law, this little child wouldn't be crying her head off in fright for her mother. This is beyond disgraceful.

    Liberals and their stance on illegal immigration is what is disgraceful and encourages them to take these terrible risks.

    I hope Donald Trump can solve our immigration problems and these kinds of tragedies.

    Liberals and democrats only fight against ever finding a solution to this kind of suffering. A truly rotten bunch of politician rats.

    Trump has certainly spent more energy on finding a solution than any other politician has, amongst thousands, in the past 25 years. Talk about a disgrace.

    REF: “I hope Donald Trump can solve our immigration problems and these kinds of tragedies”:

    Of course, DT is definitely solving the problem - and quite effectively too - by [desperately trying to] build the wall to unsuccessfully keeping the illegals at bay while totally ignoring the “Narco/Gun-Tunnels” which help the economy of the country!
