Report: Alfie Evans Given Drug Cocktail Hours Before Death?

Published

on

An Italian news reporter with close ties to the Evans family is reporting that young Alfie was given four separate drug injections just hours before his death.

“According to Italian newspaper La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, a nurse entered the child’s cubicle after his father Tom had been called aside and gave him four drugs,” said a LifeSiteNews report. “A source close to the family told LifeSiteNews that these were injections that were administered to Alfie after Tom had been summoned for an unusual middle-of-the-night meeting with the hospital. The child died two hours later.”

Several physicians are alarmed at the report that four drugs were administered at once. One or two drugs, they say, would have been normal to sedate Evans or provide pain relief. But four is mysterious. They have recommended that an independent toxicology report be conducted.

Evans survived for more than 100 hours after being forced off life support by the British government, only for his health to decline rapidly after receiving the four injections.

“Before he died, while Tom [Alfie’s father] was away for a moment, leaving Kate [Alfie’s mother] half-asleep and another family member in the room, a nurse entered and explained that she would give the child four drugs (no-one knows which) to treat him,” Benedetta Frigerio wrote.

Frigerio is an the Italian journalist who covered the Evans saga in its entirety, and was instrumental in setting up a meeting between Tom Evans and Pope Francis. The Italian government offered to fly Evans to Italy and provide him with experimental treatment for free, which was disallowed by government officials in the UK.

Frigerio notes that she cannot be sure whether Evans’ life ended naturally after being taken off of life support, or whether the drug cocktail killed him.

Evans, age 23 months, had a rare degenerative brain condition that was deemed incurable. Doctors at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool, England concluded that it was futile to keep him on life support.

After a court battle, the British government ruled that Evans could receive no further treatment.

New Gallup Poll Shows Immigration Tops Most Important Problem List

Published

on

When Americans were asked what they feel is the most important problem facing the nation, immigration topped the list for just the second time in Gallup’s history. The top issue each month since January of 2017 has been the government, but immigration has just replaced its position according to a new Gallup poll.

When asked the same question in June, immigration ranked at 14% when Gallup asked Americans what’s the “most important problem” the nation faces. It jumped from 14% to 22% from June to July 2018.

Each month, Gallup asks the same question and the answer of immigration has always averaged 5% over the 17 years Gallup has included it in their polls. So why the sudden jump from 14% to 22%?

The past several weeks social media and news outlets alike have focused on the issue of separating families at the border with President Trump’s stance on immigration and his modified policy that would keep families detained together (if detainment must occur) continuing to be a hot button issue.

Just last month, TIME ran the cover story, “A Reckoning After Trump’s Border Separation Policy: What Kind of Country Are We,” with the cover photo that was proven to be fake news. The cover showed a 2-year-old little girl crying while President Trump towers above her looking on as she wails. The cover read simply “Welcome to America.” The claim made by Time was that the little girl had been separated from her family at the border, but Yanela, daughter to Sandra Sanchez had never been separated from her mother at all. Sanchez and her daughter were arrested by Border Patrol agents under the zero tolerance policy that criminally charges anyone attempting to cross the border illegally, but at no point were they separated.

Every week immigration has remained in the news cycle, and continues to be an issue that is important to Americans. The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who entered into the United States from Mexico illegally. The National Guard has also intercepted more than 3,300 others who were turned back at the border before crossing into the U.S., and have seized 11,686 pounds of marijuana.

In April of 2006, immigration reached 19% when Congress was working on passing a comprehensive immigration bill. During this time period, immigration protests popped up all across America and saturated the news cycle. The last spike, according to Gallup of immigration as the top problem was in 2014 when the news focused its attention on a large number of immigrants who were attempting to enter the U.S. from Central America.

The issue of immigration is important to Americans, but for starkly different reasons. Republicans are more concerned about potential crime, impacts on the nation’s economy, and jobs being taken away from native-born families. Democrats, in contrast, support a path to citizenship for the undocumented, but more over, they know that they need all the help they can get at the polls, with Trump’s base stronger than ever heading into the Midterms.

The Gallup poll is based on telephone interviews conducted July 1-11 with a random sample of 1,033 adults in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It has a margin of error of 4 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.
