BREAKING: The Trump administration hid that a 10 year old child died in their custody at the border this past September – the first actual death.
This now makes 6 children who’ve died in their barbaric custody – after not having a single child die in custody the 10 years prior.

So it turns out the Chicago Police Department lied when they said two police officers didn't push & drag a 16-year-old girl down a set of stairs, punch her, tase her, then hold her down as they stomped on her chest.
Cause they did and there's video.https://t.co/8Y6xtv8ObB
