A vehicle containing 14 undocumented immigrants has crashed 50 miles off the Mexican border killing 5 of its occupants. And people are outraged because of what led to the crash.

Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change! This is why we need more Republicans elected in November. Democrats are good at only three things, High Taxes, High Crime and Obstruction. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2018
As unfortunate as this is, the officers were acting on the orders of Donald Trump and his unpopular immigration policy, which he continues to defend.

Amid wide spread protests following the crash, the sheriff of the county, Marion Boyd, said the tragic incident was not unusual at all, even if this was a first for their small county.
He gave details of crash and said some of the occupants had fallen out of the car onto the highway. According to him, 4 people died instantly, and one died at the hospital.
Sheriff Boyd told reporters that the accident was proof that border control is absolutely necessary even as this particular chase ended tragically.
