Yet another child has died in @CBP custody. This one was a boy, 8 years old and like Jakelin Caal, from Guatemala. He was diagnosed with a cold on Monday. Then it was a fever. Then he started vomiting. By the early hours of Christmas Day, the boy was dead. wapo.st/2ERef72
Jakelin Caal’s body arrived in Guatemala last Sunday. A pediatrician wrote about her death, arguing that it was “not the random outcome of accidental events, but the product of a system that never valued her health to begin with.” trib.al/0G8dy3D
“She, and the thousands of children like her crossing into the US each month, never had the option of a carefree childhood. The journey offered her that chance. It may also be what killed her.” @DLind had a truly sober perspective on Jakelin Caal’s death. vox.com/2018/12/18/181…
Saying not one word about the migrant children who are dying while incarcerated in his detention facilities, Trump reiterated on Christmas that he’ll keep the government closed until his border wall ransom is paid. wapo.st/2EL8mre
