Biden Border Crisis Media Gaslighting: It’s That Rogue Border Patrol Mistreating Illegal Immigrant Children
Sorry, AP and CBS News, these children are in Biden’s custody, the Border Patrol buck stops with him.
As the Biden administration settles into its open borders policies, even the media is starting to notice that conditions are not good for those, particularly children, crammed into substandard facilities, often with no Wuhan coronavirus testing or social distancing, masking measures. The CDC even “bent” its rules on COVID so that Biden could place as many illegals into detention facilities as possible.
As we noted, the Biden administration is also releasing illegal aliens into America who are testing positive for COVID. But Americans who have been subjected to tyrannical lockdowns and mask mandates “may” be able to gather in small family gatherings in time for July 4th. Wrap your mind around the crazy.
Needless to say, we aren’t being treated to “Biden hates brown people and wants them to die” and “Biden is a xenophobe/RAAACIST’ narratives we endured when President Trump utilized the Obama-Biden era facilities for “caging” children while obtaining agreements with Central American governments to minimize the number of children (and other illegals) allowed to illegally cross our borders.
It is rather interesting to see the legacy media publish stories about what is happening at the border . . . and how they shift blame from the president to the Border Patrol (an executive branch agency that answers to the president).
Take the AP, for example, in their article entitled, “Children packed into Border Patrol tent for days on end, ” the blame is clearly on Border Patrol. Not on the president who proudly penned executive orders that resulted in this travesty. (Archive link)
Hundreds of immigrant children and teenagers have been detained at a Border Patrol tent facility in packed conditions, with some sleeping on the floor because there aren’t enough mats, according to nonprofit lawyers who conduct oversight of immigrant detention centers.
The lawyers interviewed more than a dozen children Thursday in Donna, Texas, where the Border Patrol is holding more than 1,000 people. Some of the youths told the lawyers they had been at the facility for a week or longer, despite the agency’s three-day limit for detaining children. Many said they haven’t been allowed to phone their parents or other relatives who may be wondering where they are.
Despite concerns about the coronavirus, the children are kept so closely together that they can touch the person next to them, the lawyers said. Some have to wait five days or more to shower, and there isn’t always soap available, just shampoo, according to the lawyers.
This is not some rogue agency flouting the president’s orders; this is an executive branch agency doing exactly what the president ordered.
Even the AP is forced to acknowledge that Biden’s administration is behaving even worse than that dreaded Orange Man Bad.
President Joe Biden’s administration denied the lawyers access to the tent facility. During the administration of former President Donald Trump, attorney visits to Border Patrol stations revealed severe problems, including dozens of children held at one rural station without adequate food, water, or soap.
“It is pretty surprising that the administration talks about the importance of transparency and then won’t let the attorneys for children set eyes on where they’re staying,” said Leecia Welch of the National Center for Youth Law, one of the lawyers. “I find that very disappointing.”
The Biden administration’s lack of transparency is hardly “pretty surprising,” it’s par for the leftist course and given his administration’s dominance by Obama hold-overs and assorted communists and anti-capitalist, anti-American lunatics, it’s pretty much expected.
CBS News takes the same angle (“unexpectedly”) and places the blame on the Border Patrol.
In their article entitled, “‘They never saw the sun’: Lawyers describe overcrowded conditions for children in Border Patrol custody,” CBS News, like the AP, pretend that the Border Patrol are not part of Biden’s executive branch. (Archive link)
A “staggering number” of migrant children detained at a Border Patrol facility in south Texas face overcrowded conditions, with some held for as long as seven days, lawyers who interviewed them on Thursday told CBS News.
Neha Desai, a lawyer representing migrant youth in U.S. government custody, said she interviewed children who said they were hungry, as well as minors who only showered once in seven days.
“Some of the boys said that conditions were so overcrowded that they had to take turns sleeping on the floor,” Desai added, citing interviews with nearly a dozen unaccompanied migrant children held at the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) holding facility in Donna, Texas.
Let’s get in that shot at Trump, though, the one that totally ignores the huge influx of illegals Biden has invited across our border . . . and into his increasingly crowded, dangerous, dehumanizing detention facilities.
CBS News continues:
The minors Desai spoke to also said they had been denied phone calls to communicate with family members. “They were hysterically crying, wanting to talk to their family,” she said.
“We appreciate the extraordinary challenge that the government faces in undoing the damage of the prior administration’s immigration policies,” Desai said. “That said, it is deeply concerning to see young children in facilities for days on end, unable to take a shower, call their families or see the sunlight.”
