Horrific news. As we’ve seen over and over again, CBP cannot he trusted with the care of children. We must end the dehumanization and mistreatment of immigrants by people in power- the lives of children depend on it. https://t.co/QbZ1FBwDtG— Texas Civil Rights Project (@TXCivilRights) December 25, 2018

He deserved better
SAY HIS NAME:
FELIPE GOMEZ ALONZO
It hurts me to draw this beautiful face, but this sweet boy needs to be remembered, forever.
He was 8, my daughter turns 8 next month.#SayHisName pic.twitter.com/tsITlVSitt
Her name was Jakelin Caal Maquín.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) December 28, 2018
She was 7 years old.
She died in US Border Patrol custody.
People will say not to politicize her tragic death. People will say it was her parents' fault.
I say if we just forget her, then she died in vain. #SayHerNamehttps://t.co/c2jQKUCfGn
