The family-unit holding cells smell like urine and vomit. Fights break out in the unaccompanied-minor cells. Scabies, lice, the flu, and COVID-19 run rampant. Up to 80 individuals are squeezed into each 24- by 30-foot cell, and there aren’t enough mattresses for everyone. Sheets of plastic divide the rooms.
“Any diseases that are in there, it’s being kept in there, like a petri dish. The smell is overwhelming,” — a Border Patrol agent said, describing the conditions in a facility in south Texas.
One or two agents are left to control 300 to 500 people during a shift. No agent wants to report physical or sexual assaults between the aliens because they’ll get blamed for “letting it happen.” They’re also forced to separate a child from an extended family member because he or she is not a biological parent.
The number of unaccompanied minors—children under 18 who arrive without a parent—is crushing the system. The law requires Border Patrol to prioritize unaccompanied minors and transfer them to the Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours.
“You have a breach on national security levels that have never before been seen in modern history and you’re not even batting an eye about it, you’re not even calling it a ‘crisis’, you’re calling it a ‘challenge….It’s a slap in the face.” — Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano.
The crisis at the border is so bad that Biden is denying the press access. Why is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—who once staged a photoshoot to draw attention to the “concentration camps” under Trump—completely silent? It’s almost as if she’s a political hack who used immigrant children as props.
There is the a massive border crisis and the WH is blocking media from the migrant facilities.. the lack of uproar by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or the Mainstream Media further proves that hating Trump was the only thing they ever cared about- it was never migrants.
There were very stupid people who voted for Biden solely because of the “kids in cages” issue. They were convinced voting Dem for this was “holistically pro-life.” They don’t seem to have much to say right now. They didn’t have much to say when he nominated the man who targeted pro-life clinics and Christian orgs as head of the HHS, either. Or when he pushed to repeal the Hyde Amendment. Or when he pushed for the Equality Act. Or when he signed an EO to allow boys into girls spaces.
