‘Stop misrepresenting facts!’ Libs rage at border patrol for death of migrant girl, but headline only tells half the story

The open border left and their media allies are nothing if not consistent, as was seen yet again Thursday when they flew into a collective rage over reports of a 7-year-old migrant girl who died after being taken into custody by the Border Patrol.

Leading a campaign to stir the emotions of compassionate Americans was none other than The Washington Post, which ran with a misleading headline: “7-year-old migrant girl taken into Border Patrol custody dies of dehydration, exhaustion.”

While factually correct, it leaves out the crucial detail that the child was already in ill health when taken into custody.

Something the paper reported on in the body of the story, knowing full well that few readers ever get beyond the headline:

According to CBP records, the girl and her father were taken into custody about 10 p.m. Dec. 6 south of Lordsburg, N.M., as part of a group of 163 people who approached U.S. agents to turn themselves in.

More than eight hours later, the child began having seizures at 6:25 a.m., CBP records show. Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees, and according to a statement from CBP, she “reportedly had not eaten or consumed water for several days.”

Readers like former Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King, who lead the parade of outrage attacking President Donald Trump and the United States.

“My God. Shame on our country and shame on Donald Trump, ” read the tweet from the alleged “civil rights activist” who doesn’t like his country very much.


But facts matter little to those pushing a hard-left agenda, where exploiting the death of a young child for political purposes is just another day at the office. Where driving discord and attacking Trump are paramount.

Joining the manufactured outrage were the Trump-hating feminists at the Woman’s March, claiming the girl’s death “is on this administration’s hands.”

On and on it went, with names at the very top of the food chain contributing, as seen in a tweet from former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes.

And unhinged liberal activist/actress Alyssa Milano:

If there’s fault to be had, it likely starts with the parents who trek over a thousand miles on a perilous journey fraught with risk and danger — assuming the adults with the children are actually their parents, which is not always a given with the children sometimes being used as props to ensure entry at the southern border.

Or with the open border left, to include the Democrat Party, which embraces illegal immigrants in their shameless pandering to Hispanics — fostering an atmosphere of encouragement.

Like a siren, it calls to poor Central Americans to flock to our southern border, even though these migrants are often raped and murdered along the way.

But little of this is reported in the media.

Not that social media doesn’t push back, as seen on Twitter, although this effort pales in comparison to the reach major media players like The Washington Post have.
