I was so sick when I saw this picture. (warning: photo is graphic)

It’s a father and his two-year-old baby girl lying face down in the river of Rio Grande after trying to cross it on the US-Mexico border. The two drowned while trying to cross.

Apparently, the daughter and father made it cross safely, but the father went back to get his wife. The baby saw her father leave and went after him, not realizing she needed to stay out of the water. Both ended up drowning after a wave of water overtook them. The mom says all she could do was watch.

Meanwhile, immigration remains a hot topic and apparently too much for the acting US Customs and Border Protection commissioner. He’s leaving the job. Good news though, the House just passed a $4.5 billion border aid bill but the White House doesn’t want it and may veto it.
