Ex-Trump aide mocks immigrant girl with Down syndrome

Corey Lewandowski

On Tuesday, Mexico's foreign minister confirmed that a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome was among the thousands of children who have been recently separated from her family while attempting to enter the United States.

Appearing on Fox News again later Wednesday morning, Lewandowski was asked if he "owes an apology of any sort".

Petkanas, a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer who went on to run a "Trump War Room" for the Democratic National Committee according to The Hill, snapped at Lewandowski's seemingly unfeeling response to the story of the Down's Syndrome child.

Corey Lewandowski, the former campaign manager to then-presidential nominee Donald Trump, has angered critics after mocking a story of a disabled migrant being separated from her mother.

Lewandowski later said that he was mocking Petkanas and not the young girl.

The US President has said that he sees no other option to family separations to ensure that illegal immigrants don't "pour into" the US and "infest" the country.

2018-19 season fixtures to be announced
Manchester United starts at home to Leicester and plays only one of last season's top six, Tottenham , in its first eight games. Man United, Man City and Spurs have each been given an even split of three home and three away games on those match days.

Videgaray said the girl and her brother were sent to a US facility in McAllen, Texas, while her mother went to one an hour away in Brownsville.

Lewandowski was sacked shortly after becoming involved in a physical altercation with a female Breitbart reporter after about a year and a half as Trump's campaign manager.

"Our consulate in McAllen is doing the gestures so that, in an immediate fashion, the girl is taken out of the shelter and is reunified with her father, who has the status of a legal resident", Videgaray said. As children can not be held in adult facilities, families are broken up.

"There is no low to which this coward Corey Lewandowski won't sink", former Fox News star Megyn Kelly tweeted.
