President Donald Trump blamed Democrats on Saturday for the deaths of two children at the border. “Any deaths of children or others at the Border are strictly the fault of the Democrats and their pathetic immigration policies that allow people to make the long trek thinking they can enter our country illegally,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Democrats continue to oppose the president’s funding demands for border security and refuse to close immigration asylum loopholes allowing migrants to enter the country by claiming asylum.

Jakelin Caal Maquin, 7, and Felipe Gomez Alonzo, 8, died after claiming asylum and being detained at the border.
