Letter to the Editor: Put blame for deaths where it should be

December 28, 2018

Certainly the deaths of two young children of the caravan are worthy of heartfelt feelings of tragic loss. These two children were in the care and custody of the country’s immigration authorities and had received treatment in a hospital. The death of any child anywhere is lamentable.

According to news reports, the last child to die, following treatment in the hospital, again took sick, vomiting, but the child’s father mistakenly refused further treatment, thinking, he said, that his child was all right.

Given the facts, how do Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D) get off laying the blame for the deaths at the door of the immigration service? The officials did all they could to save the children. How can Pelosi and Schumer not know that not all children survive hospitalization in the United States?

The blame over the children’s death lies squarely at the door of the United Nations and George Soros who are the organizers, promoters and recruiters of the caravan’s disgruntled passengers.

And, certainly, the parents share the blame. They risked the health and welfare of minor children, having been taken in, apparently, by the organizers’ blatantly too-good-to-be-true, pie-in-the-sky promises of the good life in the U.S.

The news media was all too ready, it appears, to spread the false narrative as a way to attack President Trump, to make it all his fault. So sad we cannot have fair, objective news coverage.
