"migrant"... In Mexico he wouldn't even receive treatment. It's an illegal.

This is sad. But the headlines should read, malnourished illegal immigrant died of a brain infection. This has nothing to do with US health care or boarder patrol. The US isn’t magic and can’t make all problems disappear by crossing the boarder.

Fuck that brown 16 year old for trying to make a better life for himself. His parents definitely should have just had the abortion, am I right?
