    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.

    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.

    Heartbreaking, but they should not have tried to cross. Everyone want's a better life. Come legally or don't come at all. The parents are to blame for this tragedy.
