These stories are heartbreaking. You can’t help but feel for these parents. But the underlying Trump conceit here is flat-out wrong. There is no data to support the idea that undocumented immigrants are more violent their native peers.

"You can disagree about the procedures by which our country takes in refugees—but you can’t demonize them for political gain. You can argue about the proper shape of our immigration system—but you can’t support any policy that achieves its goal by purposely terrorizing children.”
