Killing of young girl shocks France and sparks far-right immigration backlash

This is story that has been percolating in France over the last few days.  It is incredibly sad but the politicization of the tragedy is unfortunately too common.   Fox News regularly attempts to stoke immigration fears in its crime reports.

NBC News reports that "The killing of a 12-year-old girl [Lola] whose body was found inside a plastic trunk has left France “profoundly shaken” and led to accusations that far-right lawmakers have politicized her death to attack the government's immigration policies."
