    If they had come to AMERICA the RIGHT WAY INSTEAD OF SNEAKING INTO THIS COUNTRY that would not have happened. BLAME IT ON THE PARENTS. AND IF WE HAD A GOOD BIG WALL THINGS LIKE THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN.

    It's unrealistic to expect that every poverty stricken child from Mexico should be allowed into the US. What is Mexico doing for its own people? Instead of its drug cartels and gangs why isn't the government in Mexico doing more for the common people? Also don't blame the US the father took the risk and his own government doesn't look after his needs. I also have concerns that the media would use such images to sell a story. Here in Australia our journalists have not sunk so low. They tend to blur out dead bodies. Out of respect for the deceased. And children are generally not shown

    They pass right thru Mexico. It's on the parents for putting their children at risk.

    Read about little Gurupreet Kaur from Punjab who crossed the US-Mexico border with her mother, but didn't make it alive: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/06/24/us/border-indian-girl-death/index.html

    This news story is misleading. 99% of illegal entry to the US is exactly that illegal. If he was really trying to enter legally, he would have used a port of entry, period. Don’t believe liberal media in this case. If parents cared they would not have chose a safer way to cross
