A major part of the Democrat argument against Donald Trump and the GOP ticket was comprised of promises to reverse Trump’s border policies and end the “kids in cages” crisis pinned on Trump.
Now, Biden’s White House has openly admitted that Biden’s pro-illegal immigration stance has created a much worse crisis that has led to even more unaccompanied minors traveling across the border and landing in holding facilities.
Biden’s immigration legacy
Biden’s immigration legacy is already shaping up to be so disastrous that it’s proving difficult for Biden’s own handlers to defend.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted to reporters on Friday that the administration is having a problem with an influx of unaccompanied minors illegally entering the US due to Biden’s pro-amnesty proclamations.
“The big difference, which we certainly understand the outcome may be an influx of more children,” Psaki confessed. “If you were kicking children out, there’s naturally by design, there’s going to be more children that come in.”
“We certainly have a different approach. We understand the outcome and the impact of that,” she continued.
“All I’m conveying is that obviously, we’re going to have more kids across, in the country since we’ve been letting unaccompanied minors stay and the last administration immorally kicked them out, in our view,” she clarified.
The Biden administration is desperately attempting to counter Trump’s tough-on-immigration policies and language, but they’re not actually reversing his policy of holding unaccompanied minors in detention facilities — because there’s nowhere else for them to go.
In fact, according to an Axios report, there are so many migrant children flooding these facilities that the CDC was forced to scrap a requirement keeping those holding facilities at 50 percent capacity.
According to a CDC memo obtained by Axios, “the “only available options” for housing minors who cross the border without their parents are “prolonged stays at [Customs & Border Protection] facilities operating significantly above COVID-19 capacities.”
There’s a direct correlation between Biden’s installation in the White House and Trump’s departure, with the number of children entering these shelters skyrocketing from an average of 47 per day in the first week of January to over 320 per day as of the beginning of March.
The crisis is so dire that the White House has reportedly designated First Lady Jill Biden as the face of its family reunification task force in order to tamp down rising media coverage of Biden’s poor handling of the growing border problem.
