Letter: Hypocritical compassion

To the Editor:

A month or so ago two illegal children died crossing the border after a long treacherous journey through Mexico. The mainstream media and the liberal Democrats went berserk. How could Trump's Border Patrol be so careless and allow this to happen giving no blame to the adults who dragged the kids through the journey. The Border Patrol had to enlist many more doctors and nurses to upgrade medical care. With the recent surge of crossings, the increase in transmittable diseases has also vamped up.

(Measles, Mumps, TB, Chickenpox, Diphtheria and HIV) requiring more medical attention. All girls over the age of ten must submit to a pregnancy test because of the copious amount of rapes on their journey. The Dems also screamed about the children being ripped from their mother's arms and put in cages, not realizing this was for the protection of the children not putting them together with adults.

The MSM and the Dems have accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis. There is no problem at the southern border but six years ago the Democrats wholeheartedly backed fencing at southern border.

Progressive states are now scrambling to pass less stringent abortion laws fearing the federal government will rescind Roe v. Wade. Illinois is on the cusp of passing the most permissive Reproductive Healthcare Act in the country, even though king Mike Madigan, (the Catholic Notre Dame grad) has claimed he was 100 percent pro-life in the past. Late term abortion and infanticide is the new banner carried by the Democrats.

Compassion, really? The party screams for compassion for illegal children ripped from their mother's arms when it is really to protect them but gives no compassion for a child ripped from their mother's wombs. Hypocritical compassion at its worst.
