Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Video obtained by ProPublica shows the Border Patrol held a sick teen in a concrete cell without proper medical attention and did not discover his body until his cellmate alerted guards. The video doesn't match the Border Patrol's account of his death.

Welcome to Trump's America.

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I put them in cells and withhold medical care, then lie about it."

What killed this kid was the Democrats border policy where they actively encourage people to cross illegally.

The reality is that there are 3B+ people in this world that would jump at the opportunity to immigrate to the US and work for $10/hour in 'ghetto' conditions as the social services we provide (including public schools and healthcare) is exponentially better than they experience in their home countries. We can debate whether we actually need these immigrants - but I don't think we can debate the that worst possible way to select which immigrants can live in the US are those that are the best at sneaking across the border.

How did Obama's cages differ from Trump's? But on a serious note - I assume you are not for 100% open border - no one is that stupid. So, if you are not for 100% open borders, what do you recommend we do with those that cross illegally? A cage free island like Australia has? Release to a relative in the US whereby they will never be heard from again? If not a 'cage' - what should be do?

Trump separated families as a default, so the cruelty would act as a deterrent.

We should send them to the homes of people like you and Trumpifidian... you know, to mop your floors and wipe your asses for you.

Otherwise, I recommend we abide by the international treaties we have signed... and not stick kids in cages, then leave them to die without medical treatment like we do under your Dear Leader.

Your concern for this particular young person is duly noted, btw. And totally predictable.

So, stick them on an island indefinitely like Australia? Seems your beef is over the conditions - well, that is due to the Dems rewarding illegal immigration rather than discouraging it and deplorables like AOC unwilling to write a check to cover the consequences of their policies.

This kid tried to illegally cross because his brother already illegally crossed - he was just following the family tradition. Had his brother been stopped by a wall or deported via interior enforcement, this kid would be a alive in Guatemala as we speak. He is dead because of Democrat open border policies.

As much as you think Trump has dictator powers, he doesn't. The Dems have obstructed him at every step of the way - from blocking border wall funding, sanctuary cities/states, and continuing to tell people it is open to enter the US illegally overflowing the border partol's ability to handle the people in an orderly fashion. That is your team. They - along with your part in it - killed this kid. Own it.

They only understand our system of government when it suits their purposes. Otherwise, it is Trump being a dictator or ineffective. The fact of the matter is that they get off on dead kids at the border.

Hypothetical question for you: There is a girl getting raped so she screams for a policeman - he sees what is going on and runs to stop the rape. On the way there, he is tackled by the rapist's accomplice.

Who is responsible for the rape? In your mind, it is the policeman because he couldn't overcome the obstructionist actions of the rapist's accomplice. You are a joke.

Tough love is for kids with poor discipline and behavior problems.

What sorts of trouble were these kids getting into, that you think the state was justified in separating them from their parents, and putting them in Tough Love camps?

Quit spouting BS. Don't be naive. Don't be ignorant. By and large it is Conservatives are the true cause for illegal migration. The reason is they knowingly employ them to reduce their labor costs and fill jobs it would take paying Americans far more to do. They have done it for decades upon decades at this point. There were "migrants" when I was a kid and long before. They wandered the country doing farm jobs that Americans, including American teens, didn't want and were incapable of doing well. Then came the era of St. Raygun. All of a sudden there was a flood of illegal immigrants. They took good paying jobs and knocked wages through the floor. True these were jobs most Americans didn't want at first. They were not glamorous or complex jobs in general. They were and still are hard labor. Today we depend on illegals in these jobs. Especially with unemployment at 3.5%.

Yes liberals as well as conservatives have failed to come up with a solution. There are a couple reasons. The first being that conservatives know liberals are correct and it would cost them elections. Liberals more or less for the same reason in that they know it would cost elections too. But the main reason is the core of all our issues at this time IMHO - money in elections. The unlimited money, dark money and the ability of corporations and the ultra wealthy to influence elections is a sad comment on this country.

Yes racism is alive and strong in this country today. Yes I truly believe that racism is what killed this boy and so many others. There was no border crisis until Trump took over. Trump created one. Words have repercussions. And don't forget just how much Der Trumpf relies on them.

Imaginary world where Jeff lives. Things are pretty there. People are nice there. Unfortunately that place doesn't exist. My son brought his wife here from Ukraine, she was fortunate he could afford thousands of dollars in lawyer's fees, otherwise she would never have been allowed to gain a permanent reisident status here. If you haven't actually brought someone here from a relatively poor country you know nothing about immigration.

Tiss the reason for the season

You know its Christmas when the "family values", "Keepers of the Christian faith", defenders of "values", "right to life" and general know-it-alls share their Christian values

I mean, they were more sympathetic to someone, and more outraged about someone who spent five days in jail, but lived

No soul and even less character

Righties don't have a clue what Jesus may have been talking about. At one point in Jesus's life he was a refugee no different from those who are trying to escape murder in their home countries today. We know the reaction those folks would have had towards him if he were escaping here.
