MSM Bias On Full Display: Detention Centers No Longer A Big Deal
It's interesting how that works. The MSM practically crucified Trump for his zero-tolerance policy and use of the detention centers at the border. Squad Dems were constantly comparing the detention center to concentration camps. But now that Biden is about to use detention centers to hold children, it's no longer an issue...
“The emergency facility — a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 — is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17,” The Washington Post reported. “Government officials say the camp is needed because facilities for migrant children have had to cut capacity by nearly half because of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border has been inching up, with January reporting the highest total — more than 5,700 apprehensions — for that month in recent years.”
"The Post noted that Mark Weber, a spokesperson for the Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services, said that the facilities were demonized during the Trump-era because people falsely associated them with detention facilities that are run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), which removes criminal illegal aliens from the U.S. and noted that children always received good care under Trump.
A similar story about the large uptick in illegal immigration on the Southern Border by CBS News referred to the facilities as “shelters for migrant children.”
Where was Weber or any other Dem with common sense for the past four years when Trump was being beaten up by the media? The bias here is just unreal. And Dems think that the MSM is not biased and conservative broadcasters are the ones selling misinformation... Obama also had the detention centers when he was president but for some reason, it was not news then either, which means the MSM does not care one bit about these illegals. It was just about smearing Trump and villainizing him.
