The mainstream media went absolutely ballistic over the Trump Administration holding unaccompanied minors at the Southern border. In some cases this was done to actually protect kids from predatory coyotes and ensure they were properly processed, but the media didn’t care.
They went all out: calling Trump a fascist, screaming into the wind about how America was now Nazi Germany, and even going down to the border to stage fake hysterical sobbing fits in the case of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Now you can barely hear a cricket as the Biden Administration holds an increasing number of kids in what the Washington Post now calls “migrant facilities.”
I suppose that “cages for kids” magically became “migrant facilities” under the magical and loving outstretched arms of President Biden.
‘Who Built the Cages, Joe?’
As President Trump memorably said during a debate in the runup to the 2020 election: “who built the cages, Joe?”
What the media called cages – crowded detention centers at the border – were used extensively by the Obama Administration as they deported far more people than Trump ever did. Now Biden is back at it, breaking the law by holding unaccompanied minor migrant kids for longer than the permitted period.
There are currently over 800 unaccompanied minors being held at the “migrant facilities” where I’m sure they’re enjoying nice views of rainbows and “unity.”
The kids are legally required to be handed over to other federal agencies within three days, but currently more than 200 are being illegally held by the Biden Administration. According to Biden’s Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, the kids are being kept in the facilities for longer because they can’t be taken to new places because of COVID and social distancing requirements.
What Psaki didn’t mention and elaborate on is how crowded the conditions are where the kids are being held and how unsafe it is for them in terms of COVID. Not that Democrats like Psaki actually care about migrant children except for using them as a political football, obviously.
Little bit more subdued response than flying to the border to scream through a chainlink fence. https://t.co/eYmTNFKuF3

Doocy vs. Psaki
Psaki’s main adversary these days seems to be Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who keeps asking her tough questions. By tough questions what I mean is he asks her actual questions instead of the corn syrup garbage puff questions asked by the progressive media like what color of wallpaper Joe Biden likes or how his dog is doing.
By bringing up the Biden Administration’s illegal overholding of migrant kids at the border, Doocy put Psaki on the spot and made it clear to everyone who’s paying attention that the last four years of the Democrats pretending to care about unaccompanied minor kids has been a complete lie. If they cared why would they be shutting them in shipping containers that could be full of COVID? It’s nonsense.
Psaki is saying the kids can’t be turned over to Health and Human Services due to social distancing issues when the shipping containers with windows that they’re being kept in are much, much worse.
For her part, AOC did say that what Biden was doing is “not okay,” but there was no word about any plans for her to go cry by the border fence this time around. I wonder why.
Last night, nearly 200 illegal aliens were apprehended in frigid temperatures in Mission, TX, to include 44 unaccompanied children.

As the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border from Mexico continues to go up, this crisis is not going anywhere for the Biden Administration. In January, Border Patrol caught almost 6,000 kids crossing the border unaccompanied, up significantly from last year’s numbers.
It’s now clear for everyone to see that Biden’s supposedly compassionate leadership is just a farce for empty political rhetoric and feel-good gestures. But the reality is kids stranded at a border catching COVID while Biden’s Press Secretary covers for it.
