WATCH: CNN’s Chris Cuomo shockingly debunks narrative about the death of the little girl at the border

The heartbreaking story about a seven-year-old girl who died at the border has drawn ire from liberals who are politicizing her death and criticizing border patrol agents for how they handled the situation. There are MANY false facts flying around and shockingly, two of CNN’s top reporters are debunking them and lending support to our border patrol agents.

Watch Chris Cuomo’s plea for people not to demonize border patrol below.


Cuomo makes some very valid points in his segment and more importantly, he tells the truth about what really happened.

“Jakelin and her father were not abused, at least not by the men and women working for the U.S. The people who organize these new mass caravans, often on false pretenses, they need to be called out and investigated.

On the long ride to processing, the father noticed Jakelin was having trouble breathing. The officers called ahead for EMT support. They were still far away. It was there when they arrived. The girl was rushed to the hospital. It took time because they were still far. CBP let the father go with the daughter to the hospital. That’s not what the law would suggest, right? He was under arrest. But it was the right thing to do. It is illegal to cross. We know that.

“But humanity is part of the job on the border. They know that, and he needed to be there, and he was. She didn’t make it. She was revived more than once, and her father was with her. This is terrible. It’s just terrible. It hurts. It hurts because we’re allowing it to happen,” Cuomo added.

“Don’t demonize people working on the border with false allegations. Don’t demonize those desperate enough to do something like this father did for his daughter from Guatemala. Walls matter,” he stated. “But this stare-down between the president and the Democrats is a deadly distraction. It’s not a single-issue problem. We’re not a wall away from safety. This system is killing people.”

Additionally, CNN’s Jake Tapper is also standing up for the truth, tweeting that the girl’s father told Guatemalan Consul Tekandi that he “met extensively with the father of 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin Friday night in El Paso. Paniagua says the father of Jakelin has “no complaints about how Border Patrol agents treated him and his daughter.”

The situation is incredibly sad and my heart goes out to the father of the little girl but it’s important to know the facts: border patrol did not treat these people poorly. In fact, they broke rules in order to allow the father to be with his daughter in her final moments.

Conservatives often criticize CNN for their reporting but in this instance, it’s spot on and kudos to both Cuomo and Tapper for standing with the truth even when others in the mainstream media are not.
