WATCH: Dem Lawmaker Claims Migrant Children Dying in US Custody is “Intentional”

On Wednesday, Democrat Rep. Lauren Underwood suggested that the deaths of illegal alien children detained in US custody was “intentional,” and directly blamed the Trump administration.

Speaking in regards to news that five juveniles have reportedly died in custody, Underwood said “the evidence is really clear that this is intentional.”

“It’s intentional, and it’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration,” drawing immediate condemnation from officials, who called her comments “appalling.”

Underwood’s remarks did not sit well with commenters on social media, who overwhelmingly denounced the Democrat lawmaker.
