The photo of the two-year-old little girl crying because she was separated from her mother is a fraud. Who says so? Her father.
Honduran citizen, Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said his wife and daughter were never separated by U.S. Border Patrol agents and they remain together.
In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, Hernandez, “… says that he was told on Wednesday by a Honduran official in the US that his wife and child are being detained at a family residential center in Texas but are together and are doing ‘fine.’”
Correction: The original version of this story misstated what happened to the girl in the photo after she was taken [sic] from the scene. The girl was not carried away screaming by U.S. Border Patrol agents; her mother picked her up and the two were taken away together.
A poll just released showed that 54% of Americans believe the parents of these children are responsible.
From Rasmussen: Most voters blame the parents of the separated children at the border for the latest illegal immigration crisis, not the federal government: 54% of likely U.S. voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law, 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law, and 11% are not sure.
It is somewhat reassuring that over 50% of those voters polled see the situation accurately. Of course, it is the parents who are responsible for either bringing their children along on a dangerous journey as they illegally enter the U.S., or sending them with strangers, or even worse … alone.
What is disappointing is that a third of those polled apparently have no understanding of parental responsibility, personal responsibility or why we even have laws to begin with. You can bet that they will not see, or acknowledge, the correction … or the truth.
Hernandez, the father said, “You can imagine how I felt when I saw that photo of my daughter. It broke my heart. It’s difficult as a father to see that, but I know now that they are not in danger. They are safer now than when they were making that journey to the border.”
And probably better fed, warmer and safer as they lay down to go to sleep then at any time during the journey.
Welcome to America? Not if you come here illegally.
