    1. Oh boo hoo for these criminals trying to illegally infiltrate our great and too kind country! Dems will use this pic to call the president a murderer very soon! Bet on it…l

    2. #1 These are families with small children who are literally willing to risk their lives for the chance to live freely. Every person with a soul, despite their political leanings, should feel compassion for their desperation. Your comment is callous.

    3. No. You can still Express sympathy for the situation and support Trunp
      The boy was drowning, all politics aside. He was born into a situation that he didnt create and almost died looking for a better life. You can catch him and send him back but this is a human tragedy. Maybe you should reread about why Ammon and Moav couldn’t join Klal Yisrael for a while
