An inconvenient truth – Pelosi – Schumer!
A media firestorm has engulfed the Trump White House after a gut-wrenching photograph of a migrant and his young child lying face down in the Rio Grande – both dead – went viral.
(They need to check to be sure he was the child’s father. He could have been a coyote. The parents and Pelosi have to be held responsible for any deaths at the border. They are not doing anything to correct their instituted deadly laws.
Anyone that would take a child that age and put them through this should be put in jail for child abuse. Shame on the Democrats and Pelosi/Schumer. You can throw all of the money you want at the border but it still is not going to replace the lives lost because of Pelosi’s stance on these deadly laws. Their deadly laws entice people to do stupid things.

But, none of the mainstream media reports mention that deaths at the southwest border were higher under the Obama administration.
According to U.S. Border Patrol data:
During Obama’s two-term presidency – from 2008 to 2016 border deaths range from 251 to 471 each year. The 471 deaths occurred in 2012, and that is the second highest number of border deaths in the last 20 years.
In the first two years of Trump’s presidency, border deaths have actually decreased.
In 2017, border deaths fell from 329 to 298, and dropped again to 283 in 2018 – according to Border Patrol data.
Facts are stubborn things. Unfortunately, that did not stop Democrats or their media enablers from only reporting part of the story.
