Remember how the media screamed when several migrant children died during the Trump years? Well, today we have a second illegal immigrant child dead, and it is likely you never heard the media say a word about it.
On Wednesday, an eight-year-old little girl died during a “medical emergency” at a U.S. Border Patrol facility in Texas, the federal government admitted.
Per Breitbart News:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials announced on Wednesday that an eight-year-old girl suffered what is described as a “medical emergency” while in Border Patrol custody with her family in Harlingen, Texas. Border Patrol officials called an ambulance which transported her to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to a written statement released by CBP on May 17.
This is the second death of a migrant child in the custody of the Biden administration in one week. On May 10, a 17-year-old Honduran boy died in his sleep while in the custody of a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services facility in Safety Harbor, Florida, Breitbart Texas reported.
“He told me he was in a shelter and not to worry because he was in the best hands,” his mother told the AP. “We only spoke two minutes, I told him goodbye and wished him the best.”
A few days later, a person who identified himself as the teen’s friend from the shelter called the mother and delivered the devastating news that her child was dead. He said when he woke up for breakfast, Ángel Eduardo Maradiaga Espinoza was unresponsive and had died.
The truth is, this sort of stuff is going to happen.
It is always regrettable. And perhaps at tomes it was preventable. But the truth is, some immigrants are going to die while trying to get here or once in custody. Unfortunately, that is how life works… and ends.
But to the media, this was a world-rending catastrophe when Trump was in charge.
Today, it’s a “meh” from the media.
