Biden admin announces FEMA will play primary role in managing unaccompanied minors at border

As the crisis on the southern U.S. border continues to spiral out of control on President Joe Biden’s watch, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made an unprecedented move in an attempt to deal with the skyrocketing number of illegal migrant children currently being detained.

According to Fox News, on Friday, Mayorkas revealed that he’s placing the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in charge of taking care of the thousands of unaccompanied minors that have been captured crossing the border as part of a “government-wide effort” to gain control of the situation. 

FEMA’s role

As of this writing, the Biden administration still refuses to admit that the situation at the border is a “crisis,” but now that Mayorkas took steps to involve FEMA, some are saying that the administration is finally admitting that there is a problem, even if they won’t use the “c-word” to describe it.

“By doing that they’re admitting there is a crisis even though they won’t say it,” said Rep. John Katko (R-NY), the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee.

FEMA’s role will include the mission to “safely receive, shelter and transfer unaccompanied children” coming across the southern U.S. border, with Mayorkas adding that the agency “is now integrated and co-located with HHS to look at every available option to quickly expand physical capacity for appropriate lodging.”

“Our goal is to ensure that unaccompanied children are transferred to HHS as quickly as possible, consistent with legal requirements and in the best interest of the children,” Mayorkas said in a statement.

As the New York Post reported, the move came just days after Mayorkas reportedly called for “volunteers” from other agencies to help with the “overwhelming” surge of migrants coming across the border.

Out of control

Within the past two weeks, the number of unaccompanied minor children in custody has tripled to a staggering 3,250, adding to the exploding illegal immigration crisis that ended with over 100,000 migrants caught by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents in the month of February alone.

The situation with illegal minors has surged to such extreme levels that the Biden administration is scrambling to find appropriate housing for them, including recent news that they’re exploring the possibility of using American military bases and a NASA facility for housing them.

The COVID-19 pandemic on top of the influx of illegal immigrants has made the crisis much worse, as facilities have been above capacity for weeks now, not to mention the fact that there’s still not much data on how many of the migrants are testing positive for the virus.

Republicans and other critics in the media of Biden’s approach to the border crisis blame the new president for rolling back so many of former President Donald Trump’s immigration-related policies that helped prevent these types of crises from happening in the first place.

Only time will tell how this border crisis ends up, but if the White House is already tasking FEMA with such a massive undertaking and calling for volunteers, it’s not a stretch to presume that it will become increasingly worse before it gets better.

      1. Amen. I think all these liberal anti Americans belong in jail. If they allow these illegals into our country they need to pay for them. The parents should be charged with child abuse and be punished. No other county would allow this to happen. Americans take a stand against these liberal crazy anti Americans. They will not destroy our county.

    1. Um, he WASN’T elected. But our court systems, local and federal, refused to hear anything. I’m guessing that everyone has been bought and paid for, or threatened bigtime, except for us who actually live, work, play, and love our country.
      I don’t know who would have the power to impeach him and call out the others; the AG maybe, is the one who’d call all of them to task, legally, and we’ve seen what they’ve done…

  4. Well the FEMA camps that were modified by Obama were meant to be for us! They were meant to be concentration camps. Now to be kiddie camps.

    1. Yes I’m in AZ with stashes of multi-body coffins in the desert. Perhaps they also would rather have children swoop throughout the country than deal with such irrational people as the rest of us.

  5. We need to run the adults out. They are coming so americans can keep them up. We have people at n america that doesn’t get enough food to eat or they have no place to live
    They bring illegals in and make sure they have food and somewhere to stay. These veterans need it not illegals
    Make the illegals go and protect america from harm and quit send our men and women. We should not give them anything. We show we don’t want them here and tell them to go home. Black people want everything for doing nothing and now the illegals think they deserve everything because they snuck over the border. Everything is shut down and biden let’s illegals in covid and wanting our jobs. They think america is so great it would be if we got rid of all the democrats and the lazy people on welfare.

  6. Those of us who live close know that there is a very serious problem! We support the border patrol personnel 100%. Biden will be the one with their blood on his hands. HE IS TOTALLY RRESONSIBLE FOR ALL THE PROBLEMS THERE!!!! WITH HIS STUPID OPEN BORDER’S POLICIES, ETC. TIME TO IMPEACH HIN, HARRIS, AND VOTE OUT EVERY ONE WHO SUPPORTS THAT CRAP!!!!

  7. Biden sure stepped in it this time. there nothing he does he made so many empty promises that can not fulfill like $200 more month on SS don’t ever hear about that any more news Media covered up Biden lie, is this new norm lie way out everything.

  8. THIS COUNTRY NEEDS A LEADER SEND THESE PEOPLE BACK WHERE THEY CAME FROM CLOSE THE DAM DOOR THIS IS TOTALLY NOT NEEDED WE ALL NEED HELP JOBS AN TO LIVE IN PEACE BUT THIS IS NOT IT.

  9. Time for the military to step in, with or without the sleepers consent.! MOVE!
    We need Trump back in the OVAL where he belongs. Get these unlawful and fraudulent politiians out of the government, they are destroying this NATION, our FREEDOMS and implanting MARXIST TOTALITARIAN rules. Can’t have that. ENOUGH is ENOUGH°! IMPEACH IMPEACH IMPEACH!

    1. Yes. Get this biden out of his position. Bring back TRUMP who was a great LEADER and took care of America. The country is in an EMERGENCY condition being run by a league of ignorant buffoons, which are the democrats and their useless policies.

  10. Well, obammy’s fema camps will come in handy after all. What an atrocity! Where is crybaby Cortez? Shouldn’t SHE be visiting the border this time? And Piglosi definitely should, along with joebama, see for themselves the monster they have created!

  11. If fema uses it’s budget helping illegal alien’s then how will they be able to respond to hurricane victums or other natural disasters. Oh i see obiden will just print up some more fake money to pay for it. Just like every other idiot president has done in time of an emergency. Bankruptcy here we come toot toot full speed ahead.

    1. Which is one of the things necessary to take over and become the NWO. I wonder what they think is going to be so great after they achieve that? We’ll be gone so they’ll have to fight each other.

  12. Hey, here’s a good idea, why don’t we let the American People decide who comes into the Country at this time and who doesn’t.
    Who can we sell the House and the Senate to?

  13. IT’s TIME TO DITCH THE WITCH, NANCY PELOSI!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP in DC and DEMAND NANCY PELOSI BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE ABUSE OF POWER!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

  14. Give the crisis to the military. This is an invasion, so shoot first ask questions later, as we do overseas. Just a couple rounds from a machine gun will send them all home. Example to substantiate that claim ( when tear gas was used on the california border last year after a fence break through the invaders ran back through the fence break like rats abandoning the ship. california is not worthy of being capitalised.

    1. The military has the power, no, authority and responsibility, to step in and set things right if the government has been affected by treasonous citizens, felons, and international interference.
      I wonder how one gets the attention of the military.

      1. The military has been compromised by this admin. and the O admin. They have promoted empty suits, REMFs , (Rear Echelon, M Fs) and all the other Pampered Princes of the Puzzle Palace. Exhibit A is the new SecDef – talk about an empty suit…

  15. FEMA IS SUPPOSED TO BE USED FOR EMERGENCYS. HAVE THEY DECLARED THIS AN EMERGENCY. IF SO ITS A CRISIS AN THATS SOMETHING BIDEN WONT ADMIT. WHY NOT SHUT THE DAM DOOR AN SEND THEM BACK HOME
    THAT WOULD SALVE THE WHOLE PROBLEM. BIDENS JUST TOO STUPID TO FIGURE THAT OUT.

  16. What a freaking unnecessary condition our wonderful country is in all due to the ignorance of BIDEN WHO IS SUPPOSE TO BE THE LEADER OF OUR COUNTRY? I wouldn’t trust him to care for my dog, let alone the tax paying citizens of this country. What in the hell is wrong with people? Bad enough we have an pandemic going on in our country, but to let in illegal aliens by the thousands is just BRAIN DEAD and IGNORANT to say the least. Who would of thought? We have unemployed citizens of THIS country. Why in the hell would Biden send for more illegal aliens to come to our great country?????
