ICYMI: Woman and Three Small Children Die at the Border, John Cornyn Can’t Wait to Blame Her

Austin, TX — In one of the most disgusting actions taken by any Senator this year, John Cornyn commented on the death of a woman and three small children tweeting “Sadly, this is what happens when infants are used as a ticket to enter the US due to arcane laws. Inaction is not an option.”

John Cornyn tweeted this without knowing anything about the woman or the facts behind her death.

More from the Texas Tribune:

  • “U.S. Border Patrol agents found four bodies Sunday near the Rio Grande in South Texas, including three children and a young woman, Hidalgo County Sheriff Eddie Guerra posted in a tweet Sunday night.”

  • “U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, weighed in on the situation on Twitter early Monday morning.
    “Sadly, this is what happens when infants are used as a ticket to enter the US due to arcane laws,” Cornyn said. “Inaction is not an option.”’

  • “The reported deaths follow several days of news reports about troubling conditions inside border-area detention centers. Last week, four toddlers were hospitalized after lawyers visited a U.S. Border Patrol facility in McAllen and found them severely ill and not receiving medical attention, according to the Huffington Post. All four children were under three years old, according to the lawyers; one was “completely unresponsive.”
