After four years of biased coverage of the Trump Administration’s immigration policy, the mainstream media has gone noticeably silent after the Biden Administration began a similar practice of holding the children of illegal aliens in cages at the border, as reported by Breitbart.
Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, confirmed that the Border Patrol had detained more than 800 illegal alien children, formally referred to as “Unaccompanied Alien Children.” Of these 800, over 200 were held in their custody even after the Biden Administration’s orders to release them after 72 hours.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, when pressed on the matter by Fox News’ Peter Doocy, claimed that the children remained in the facility “due to the COVID protocols including social distancing” within other facilities, with the 200 children remaining in the single location to maintain these practices in other locations.
“What she didn’t tell the media,” Judd continued, “was that the children in their custody were being held in conditions that have nearly no way to social distance. The hypocrisy from the Left and the mainstream media truly shows that they care nothing for the children they used as pawns to attack President Trump.”
Judd further refuted Psaki’s claim that CBP is continuing “to transfer unaccompanied children to HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR),” but that “ORR only has capacity for a certain number of children. What she didn’t explain is that the children that ORR doesn’t have that capacity to take are left in facilities far worse than those of HHS.”
In fact, Judd claimed, the locations where those rejected children are being held are the exact same facilities that the media widely publicized during the Trump Administration in order to claim, falsely, that such children were being held in “cages.”
These are the exact same cages, too.
But look at the media double-speak!
Since most all of t he M.S. Media are Democrat and Democrat Voters and Supporters their gutter level liberal Journalisms not surprising the last four years we have seen their gutter level Journalism and were turning it all off or changing the channels
Simply more proof that the left never cared about how illegal immigrants are treated, they just want to use them as political weapons.
She put her foot down and made a scene at one of these detention centers under Trump.
Now she hasn’t quite grasped the degree of cognitive dissonance required to pretend this wasn’t that same exact thing and place.
So, she made a scene against Biden doing what Trump did.
Some poor Dem will have to school her in double-speak.
Pity the fool.
Remember Obama/Biden Era actually lost the records of 90,000 children from the southern border detention facilities THEY JUST DISAPPEARED NO RECORDS.
@Nan G: While she can be commended for her consistency, all she cares about is bringing in and releasing as many illegal immigrants as possible. She is merely consistently wrong.
