Welcome to the newest frontier of political indoctrination: Children’s books.

Bookstores these days are stacked with hyperpartisan propaganda aimed at stealing the minds of our youngest, though not necessarily our most impressionable.

Zabi-Ullah Hemmat wasn’t just one of 415,816 illegal immigrants caught at the southwest border in fiscal 2016. Nor was he just another of the 84 people from Afghanistan apprehended by Border Patrol agents that year.
