And there's no telling how many more have died on their dangerous journey to the boarder facilitated by the drug cartels, and being accompanied by strangers.

When the State takes a person into custody, the State is responsible for the well being of the detainee. The State is acting in loco parentis with respect to a child being held.

If your neighbor's kid died while in custody of his or her parents, I'm sure you would not have such a glib response. You might wonder how could a parent allow a child to die on their watch.
