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.”
Rep. @LaurenUnderwood: “With 5 kids that have died, 5,000 separated from their families, I feel like 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.” https://t.co/C5Doo7MYxG pic.twitter.com/2F16XwUkyq

Underwood’s remarks did not sit well with commenters on social media, who overwhelmingly denounced the Democrat lawmaker.
This same process was in place during the Obama administration, where were all of these complaints then?

Planned Parenthood intentionally kills kids every day. Underwood supports federally subsidizing each killing.

If Democrats in Congress would change our immigration laws, this wouldn’t be happening but their priority is to find imaginary dirt on our President. These kids are just collateral damage.

People, we’ve found another moon-bat. There used to be a time when these were rare occurrences. Sadly, America is infested with them.

Not policy, law passed by Democrats. Why are there so many stupid people in the House right now? It’s maddening. And, of course, #FakeNews must headline every stupid thing they say.
