Where's The Outrage? Biden Admin Is Filling Detention Centers With Kids
It's funny how this works. Trump had a zero-tolerance policy to keep our border safe and the MSM practically crucified him for it. AOC and some of her squad Dems went as far as to say that the Trump Admin was running Concentration Camps. They were relentless. During this pandemic, the Trump Admin followed CDC Guidelines and didn't operate the centers at full capacity so they could space out the migrants. But the Biden Administration has the Detention Centers at full capacity and is separating children from their families. Yet it's practically crickets from Libs/the MSM now.
"The number of unaccompanied migrant children detained along the southern border has tripled in the last two weeks to more than 3,250, filling facilities akin to jails as the Biden administration struggles to find room for them in shelters,” The New York Times reported. “The children are being held in facilities, managed by the Customs and Border Protection agency, that were built for adults. The border agency has been the subject of widespread criticism for the horrific conditions in its federal detention facilities, in which children are exposed to disease, hunger, and overcrowding.”
The policy is different than the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy. Trump ended up signing an executive order that changed the policy so that “families are expected to be kept together, even if a parent faces prosecution for breaking immigration laws,” according to PolitiFact.
The Washington Examiner reported late last week that multiple sources familiar with the matter said that the Biden administration was considering changing the names of the facilities to “reception centers” because it sounded less harsh."
This double standard is ridiculous. It just goes to show that Dems really don't care about the treatment of migrants. They just wanted to demonize Trump for doing nothing more than trying to keep Americans safe.
