In yet another tragic incident stemming from the Biden administration’s disastrous immigration policies, a 3-year-old child has died after being transported from Brownsville, Texas, to Chicago. The child’s family had requested the bus transfer, and sadly, the child’s health deteriorated during the journey, ultimately resulting in their untimely death.
While the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) expressed their condolences and emphasized the tragic nature of any loss of life, they also provided some details about the incident. Apparently, the bus had made an emergency stop after the child presented health concerns, and the onboard security personnel quickly contacted 9-1-1 for assistance. Bilingual security personnel translated for the parents and the paramedics, but unfortunately, the child passed away after being taken to a local hospital for additional medical attention.

TDEM clarified that prior to boarding the bus, all passengers underwent a temperature check and were questioned about any medical conditions that might require assistance. Nobody exhibited a fever or any other health issues. Additionally, the bus transportation was entirely voluntary, as the migrants had been processed and released by the federal government into overwhelmed border towns. These migrants willingly chose Chicago as their destination by signing a voluntary consent waiver.
It’s absolutely heartbreaking to see the consequences of the Biden administration’s lax immigration policies, which have not only put a strain on border communities but have now resulted in the loss of innocent lives. Texas Governor Greg Abbott launched the busing strategy to provide relief to the overwhelmed border communities, but it seems to be creating more problems than solutions. Instead of addressing the root causes of the immigration crisis, the Biden administration is relying on band-aid solutions that only perpetuate the problem.
One can’t help but wonder if the child’s death could have been prevented if the administration had prioritized border security and implemented stricter immigration policies. This tragedy serves as a stark reminder of the dangers that come with unchecked immigration and the need for stronger border controls. It is a devastating loss that should never have happened.
