Guess what happens when a nation has open borders that allow illegal aliens to flock over in droves without documentation, background checks or proper entry procedures, all in the name of compassion?
Kids suffer and die.
Case in point: a Central American boy was found wandering in the sweltering Arizona desert this week after an alleged family member dumped him by the side of the road and wished him the best of luck.
A 6-year-old Costa Rican boy was rescued by U.S. Border Patrol agents after he was abandoned on a border road in Arizona on Tuesday evening.
The agents discovered the boy just north of the border west of Lukeville in temperatures over 100 degrees.
The child claimed that he was dropped off by "his uncle" and that Border Patrol would pick him up. Agents say the boy said he was on his way to see his mother in the U.S.
Border agents said they took the little boy to a border facility in Tucson to be medically evaluated and processed as an unaccompanied child.
This story – which fortunately had a positive ending that didn’t involve border agents finding the little boy’s body dead in the brush – is just one of thousands of stories like it, in which children are found abandoned in the vast desert regions along the border after having been abandoned by human smugglers or “family members."
Which is exactly what the left's beloved open borders encourage.
