For the past four years, we’ve heard Democrats rail incessantly against President Donald Trump’s decision to keep “kids in cages” at the border. To hear them tell it, the situation with these illegal migrants is akin to Japanese internment camps and the actions of the Nazis. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it was one of the hottest driving factors for young Democrats who wanted to unseat Trump and install a new president in 2020.
So what is that new president going to do about it? Well, according to a new statement from the Department of Health and Human Services, he’s going to reopen a facility that can house up to 700 migrant children!
“Initially, the Carrizo Springs ICF will accommodate approximately 700 children in hard-sided structures. Additional semi-permanent (soft-sided) capacity may be added if necessary, though ORR will always prioritize placing children in hard-sided structures over semi-permanent structures,” the statement said.
In case you think that “soft-sided” means that the children will be stored in clay structures or some sort of Nerf housing, we’ll let you in on a secret: It means that Biden is going to dump these migrant children into tents. In addition to the “kids in cages” criticism, the Trump administration also came under harsh fire for letting these tent cities proliferate along the border. So far (strangely enough), we haven’t seen the mainstream media go in on Biden for doing the exact same damn thing.
We know, we know. You can’t contain your shock.
And why should you be? After all, the “kids in cages” outrage was fake from the start, seeing as how Trump’s predecessor detained migrant children in the exact same way without a whisper of criticism. Indeed, many of the ballyhooed photos accusing Trump of these crimes against humanity were later revealed to be PICTURES FROM THE OBAMA ERA. The whole “Trump is cruel to immigrants” narrative was manufactured all along, so it’s no surprise to see it suddenly disappear now that a new sheriff is in charge.
The fact is, barring a pure open-borders policy, the federal government has no choice but to detain these illegal immigrants when they cross into the United States. It takes time to process their claims and appeals. This was the genius inherent in Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy; it took the onus off the U.S. and put it onto our southern neighbors, giving them their own incentive to stop these caravans from getting through. Unfortunately, Biden is going to do away with that policy, once again putting us in danger of another tremendous surge at the border.
So what’s the new president’s answer? Tent cities and a return to the disastrous “catch and release” policies that got us into this mess in the first place. If Biden’s plan is to Make America Stupid Again, he’s doing a hell of a job.
