    How is this trumps fault? You do realize that many immigrants died while Obama was President right? People crossing the border die all the time. I don't know why this one story is any different. I don't mean any disrespect to the family. My condolence. However I feel like we're just trying to find anything that we can just point the finger at Trump at this point.

    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.

    All you people saying CHOICES, obviously there are choices and when a father or mother puts THIS CHOICE on the table it must be THEIR LAST!!! Or something an act of DESPERATION!! None of you can say ANYTHING about this mans decision UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN IN THAT POSITION!!

    Cant be responsible for the decisions of others. Everyone chooses their own path. Dont try to make us the reason for your grief.

    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.
