While the Trump administration’s “kids in cages” scandal dominated news headlines for months, the mainstream media is totally ignoring a much larger crisis currently happening under Biden’s watch.
According to the Washington Post, at the height of the Trump-era border surge, roughly 2,600 underage illegal immigrants were under the custody of the federal government.
Meanwhile, an ABC News report published last week noted that as of March 30th, “There [were] 17,641 unaccompanied migrant minors in government care — 5,606 children are in CBP custody and 12,035 in the care of the Department of Human and Health Services.”
A CBS reporter recently noted a facility in Donna, Texas is housing over 600 illegal immigrant children in a “pod” designed to host 32 kids.
The facility as a whole is “at 1,700% pandemic capacity,” according to the reporter.
Not only is mainstream media ignoring the increased number of unaccompanied migrant children in government custody, but they are also failing to highlight the fact that they are often crossing the border with COVID.
If the virus is really as dangerous as the media claims, why aren’t they fuming that illegal immigrants are not being tested for COVID before being flown around the country with envelopes full of U.S. taxpayer dollars.
Instead of addressing an issue they claimed to care about during the Trump presidency, Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are criticizing Americans as “white supremacists” for calling the invasion a “surge”.
The hypocrisy of the left has never been more apparent than it is now.
