A picture of a drowned father and daughter at the southern border has brought a great deal of left-wing attention to the border crisis.
The tragic photo shows a migrant from El Salvador and his 2-year-old daughter washed up on the shore of the Rio Grande River after trying to cross the border into the United States.
It's a punch to the gut. A horrific reminder of the dangers these people face trying to cross into the United States. A father and daughter, face down, drowned in the Rio Grande. It's hard to look at, I know. But we should see it.

A Vox writer called the image “the true face of the Trump administration’s approach to immigration, the physical embodiment of the nativism that animates it.”
“Trump is responsible for these deaths,” tweeted presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke.
On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., took the photo to the Senate floor and blamed President Trump for the pair’s deaths, calling his actions on the crisis a “whirlwind of incompetence leading to pictures like this.”
