A border facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, re-opened this week dedicated exclusively to holding children unaccompanied by their parents. President Trump had shuttered the facility built during the Obama/Biden administration that locked up kids in cages.

Both Obama and Biden get a free pass but Trump who shut the place down is blamed for the actions of Obama and Biden. Trump is the left’s whipping boy.

In ancient times young princes and princesses had someone who would have to take the punishment when the royal offspring would act up.

The difference between that and how trump is dealt with is the whipping boy would be a close friend of the prince, who would not like seeing their friend whipped. But the left makes up crimes in order to whip Trump.

How many politicians could survive $50 million dollar investigations?

The Biden administration claims they had to reopen the facility due to the pandemic.

Former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan said:

“Those facilities aren’t needed because of COVID. That’s absolutely not true. Those facilities are needed because this administration is now encouraging, incentivizing, and facilitating illegal entry in the United States and the numbers have skyrocketed.”

Daily Caller:

Over 78,000 migrants were apprehended while illegally crossing the border in January, Morgan said. Over 3,500 migrants were apprehended daily, though the number is likely closer to 4,500 when accounting for the people who evaded law enforcement officials.

“They’re reinstating catch and release, that’s why these facilities are needed because they’ve created a new crisis,” Morgan said.

Morgan continued, asserting that the administration is releasing illegal immigrants into the country and “preventing ICE from lawfully deporting 90% of those that they’re encountering here illegally.”

Associated Press:

An internal memo sent Wednesday and obtained by The Associated Press authorizes facility operators to use government funding for transport fees “in the event that a sponsor is not able to pay fees associated with commercial airfare, and a child’s physical release would be otherwise delayed.” HHS declined to say how many flights would be funded.

HHS has drastically cut its capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly all of the department’s 7,100 beds for immigrant children are full. Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents are apprehending an average of more than 200 children crossing the border without a parent per day. Most Border Patrol facilities aren’t equipped for long-term detention, with children forced to sleep on mats in cells where the lights stay on around the clock.

  • Best way to take care of all the extra children is to buss them all to Washington, DC and put them all in the new big fenced-in area that Pelosi had built. There are even MANY Nation Guard personnel to guard them.

    • My thoughts exactly. Those jerks need to experience the results of their abominable behavior of thwarting our immigration laws and national security with the stroke of a pen. Where are the damn republicans? Where are the court cases and injunctions? Are conservatives just going to get up long enough to bitch, do nothing, then go back to their little nappy for the next 4 years? Lazy bums.
      Dear Lord, we the people need your help to stop this madness.

  • It is with all do respect that what we are witnessing as citizens of the U.S.A. is not only madness, it is lunacy and total incompetency of a government now controlled by an idealogy and one that is not governed by the people,for the people and of the people as JFK so eloquently said in an inaugural speech never forgotten,”Ask not what your country can do for you” but what you can do for your country”. Dear God what have we come to.. Borders open for an added public heath crisis and a wall built in our Capital including barb wire coils. Disgusting.

  • Turn everyone of them around and send them back it’s not our problem! Give them each a bottle of water and an armed escort back to their own country

  • That picture above should be plastered up during every TV news program in the country with Biden’s name attached to it. It should be shown on every program around the clock until Biden does something sane for a change and closes the border, which should have never been opened in the first place.

  • this is human trafficking. more for their plantations, demorat ran cities to refill the voter base they have lost.

  • WHAT KIND OF PARENT IS SENDING THEIR CHILD OVER THE BORDER ALONE.CRAZY MIXED UP WORLD WE ARE IN THANKS TO THE IDIOTS OF TODAY.MOSTLY COMMIE RATS IN OUR GOVERNMENT.
