Dear Mr. VP,
Her name was Jakelin Caal Maquin. She was seven, and she was fleeing an impoverished village in Guatemala. She in Border Patrol custody when she died.
When the head of CBP spoke to Congress last week, he said he didn’t bring it up because he didn’t want to “politicize” her death.
Now, of course, all bets are off and it’s politics everywhere, the general line being “Yeah, tough shit. Don’t bring your kids to this country.”
How very pro life!
