The fact that a father would drag his child across a continent doesn’t bother these people, nor dose the truth about detainment.
RAICES asserted that they are in contact with a father who said his baby is suffering from “nonstop diarrhea,” “stomach pain” and is unable to eat, and that the ‘family’ is supposedly being held at the Karnes detention center in Texas.
As expected, a number of democrats jumped right on the bandwagon without bothering to fact check the outrageous lie.
“This is inhumane,” Democratic Texas Rep. Veronica Escobar wrote.
Two children have already died while in @CBP custody. Right now, a very ill 1-year old baby is not receiving the adequate medical care at Karnes, TX.
This is inhumane. This baby must be taken to a hospital immediately. https://t.co/byMjGrO1NI

Many people argue it’s ‘inhumane’ to be so stupid.
Several children have already died in @ICEgov and @CBP custody. Right now, a very ill 1 year old child is suffering at Karnes and is not receiving the adequate medical care to get better. This child must be taken to a hospital immediately. @RAICESTEXAS #StoriesFromKarnes

That seems like another boldface lie.
ICE committed a comprehensive check and denied that there was any such child.
In a statement released Monday, ICE indicated that they “completed auxiliary wellness checks over the weekend” to determine if a child exhibiting the aforementioned symptoms was in custody at Karnes.”
Out of an abundance of caution, in response to anonymous reports of a sick child, ICE officials completed auxiliary wellness checks over the weekend & confirmed that no child currently in custody at the Karnes FRC is exhibiting signs of dehydration… (1/2)

“ICE officials completed auxiliary wellness checks over the weekend & confirmed that no child currently in custody at the Karnes FRC is exhibiting signs of dehydration, nor was any resident seeking medical attention for a child with the symptoms described in the anonymous reports,” the agency stated.
The Daily Caller reported:
In August, an immigration lawyer falsely accused ICE of allowing a child to die from respiratory illness in the Dilley Family Detention Center in Texas. After ICE disputed that report, the lawyer updated her claim to indicate that the child died after she left ICE custody.
So, lying about dying children to further a leftist narrative that seeks an infusion of ignorant and dependent voters is just a matter of course for democrats, apparently.
There is no sick child being refused treatment.
The only misery any child is undergoing is at the hands of their misguided parents who subjected them to these conditions in the midst of violent killers, not ICE.
