According to a Fox News report, Biden set up a facility in South Texas for unaccompanied children entering the country illegally to wait there for a ruling from authorities.
But what is disturbing is that Biden and his allies in mainstream media used this facility made up of small, contiguous cells to demonize Trump as “inhumane” even though it was created in the Obama-Biden era.
At a Feb. 23 press conference, a Fox News reporter challenged White House press secretary Jen Psaki, asking her what the difference was between what Biden was doing now with what Trump did at the time.
The press secretary explained that the facility was “temporarily” open because of the CCP Virus pandemic situation and that it had nothing to do with what the previous administration did.
“This is not kids being kept in cages. This is a facility that was opened that is going to follow the same standards as other HHS facilities. It is not a replication. Certainly not,” Psaki said.
She added, “That’s never our intention—of replicating immigration policies of the past administration.”
However, Breitbart took it upon itself to contact a border official in South Texas to confirm the press secretary’s statements, and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, denied Psaki’s remarks.
“Today, Jen Psaski said the administration could not hold the children in other locations due to the Covid protocols including social distancing,” Judd said, “but what she didn’t tell the media was that the children in [Border Patrol’s] custody were being held in conditions that have nearly no way to social distance.”
According to the Breitbart report, in addition to holding children without parents in the same “inhumane” conditions, they have also violated the legal time limit they are allowed to keep these children in detention.
The Trump administration had a “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration that resulted in family separations. Anyone crossing the border illegally was criminally prosecuted.
Adults were taken for criminal prosecution, while their children remained in facilities. If the charges took longer than 72 hours to be processed, the children were sent from the care of Customs and Border Protection to the Department of Health and Human Services.
After media pressure, Trump signed an order to end family separations in 2018.
Now Biden is doing the same and worse, but the media remains silent because they don’t really care about the children, only their political power. And Psaki has no more arguments to defend her administration’s lies.
“The hypocrisy from the left and the mainstream media truly shows they care nothing for the children they used as pawns to attack President Trump,” Judd said. “They are being held in the same locations they accused the Trump administration of inhuman acts when they said he was holding ‘kids in cages.’”
