Potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris issued a tweet Thursday calling for answers in the death of a 7-year-old migrant girl who reportedly died in U.S. Border Patrol custody — though officials say she hadn’t eaten or consumed water for several days before the arrest.

“This is tragic. We need a full and thorough account of what happened before this 7-year-old girl died of dehydration and exhaustion in CBP custody,” Harris wrote in a tweet.

Harris was not alone in her calls for an investigation.

Another Democrat, rising liberal star and thought-to-be potential 2020 contender to Trump, Beto O’Rourke also tweeted about the death, sparking a response from immigration expert, Dennis Michael Lynch.

O’Rourke writes: “I am deeply saddened by this girl’s death. There must be a complete investigation and the results shared with Congress and the public.”

DML responds: “Investigate? Blame scum who hire illegal labor &Dems who give freebees. U lure them in. Then Instead of deportation they r processed. Result=kid dies. Politicos n media pretend to care, Taxpayers get the bill. Kid should b alive in her HOME COUNTRY. Ur part of the problem “Beto”
