This 14 December 2018 video from the USA says about itself:
7-year-old Jakelin Caal died in Border Patrol custody
Jakelin Caal died of dehydration, shock, and finally, cardiac arrest, in Border Patrol custody. Kirstjen Nielsen, Fox News, and the Trump administration blame the father who tried to deliver her from certain death back home, but look.
From Latino Victory in the USA today:
Last week we learned the shocking news that 7-year-old Jakelin Caal died while in Customs and Border Patrol custody.
While the government has blamed Jakelin’s journey to the U.S. from Guatemala with her father for her dehydration and death, there’s much we don’t know about her care in CBP custody, including why she wasn’t given medical care for at least 90 minutes. It also took the Department of Homeland Security a week before they publicly announced this horrific news.
We know Jakelin isn’t the first child to die in our government’s custody, and as long as this Administration continues its cruel and inhumane treatment of immigrants and asylum-seekers, including throwing out thousands of jugs of water left for migrants in the desert, it’s likely more innocent lives will be lost in their hands.
If you’re as disturbed and angry by this as we are, add your name to our petition and demand Congress investigate the deaths of children while in our government’s custody.
Add your name here.

The Trump administration announced a new policy that effectively guts the right of asylum for refugees from Central America. From now on, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will begin expelling non-Mexican refugees as soon as they have made application for asylum after crossing the US-Mexico border. They will be immediately deported to Mexico instead of being allowed to stay in the US pending the adjudication of their asylum claims: here.
CARLSON DOUBLES DOWN ON MIGRANT RACISM Fox News host Tucker Carlson refused to walk back his claim that immigration makes the U.S. “poorer and dirtier,” doubling down on his racist rhetoric about the migrant caravan in Mexico, telling viewers: “It’s true.” In response, several advertisers have ditched the show.
