Under the ObamaBiden administration, there was a facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas that housed illegal alien children using chain link fencing. This was started under ObamaBiden and it was perfectly fine and not covered by the leftist media at all. Nothing to see here folks. No problems.
But under Trump, when he was using the same facility and fencing, all of a sudden it was a human tragedy and there were “kids in cages.”
Michelle Obama said in a speech, “They watch in horror as children are torn from their families and thrown into cages.”
Yes, cages that her hubby approved and had built.
Then presidential candidate Joe Biden said in 2019, “Under Trump there have been horrifying scenes at the border of kids being kept in cages.”
Senator Kamala Harris had said, “Babies in cages is a human rights abuse being committed by the United States Government.”
And Democrat REP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was outraged. She Tweeted about Trump, “This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying. This is not hyperbole. It is the conclusion of expert analysis.”
These cages, the cages that Obama had built, were covered ad nauseum by the hypocrite democrats and the leftist media as an abomination and the democrats would take trips to the border to cry and wail about the situation.
Now that Biden has reactivated the same facility because of a massive influx of illegal alien children at the border due to his open border Executive Orders, these “cages” are now being called “migrant facilities for children” and there is no outrage by the hypocrite democrats or the leftist media.
Washington Post actually has an article titled “First migrant facility for children opens under Biden.”
Migrant facility for children.

Washington Post, defending Biden, has another article in which they call the facility a “Cadillac of (migrant child) centers.” They cite no difference in the facility – they just say that Trump’s policies were bad.
Others are calling the areas “chain-link partitions” instead of cages because it sounds a little less offensive.
And AOC is talking out of both sides of her mouth by Tweeting, “This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party.”
But then she also Tweeted, “It’s only 2 months into this administration and our fraught, immigration system will not transform in that time.”
So she ALMOST wasn’t a hypocrite there. But just couldn’t make it all the way.
I’m going to guess that AOC probably won’t be visiting Biden’s border anytime soon with cameras in tow to throw herself up against the chain link fencing with tears of horror for another photo shoot in her Gucci watch?
Luckily, we have one journalist in the world who is allowed into Jen Psaki’s White House press briefings who actually asks real questions.
That would be Fox News journalist and White House correspondent Peter Doocy and he was having none of the leftist BS about the facility.
He asked Psaki why the Biden administration was reopening a temporary facility for migrant children in Texas.
Psaki blamed it on the pandemic and the fact that they have to make sure they follow social distancing protocols. She said they really want it closed but they have to follow COVID-19 protocols and need more space.
Doocy pointed out that when Trump opened the same facility for a month in the summer of 2019, that Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the rest of the democrats had a fit about human rights abuses. He asked how this is any different than that.
Jen got all pissy with him and reminded him that there was a pandemic going on. She accused him of being heartless as leftists do by saying, “I’m sure you’re not suggesting that we have children right next to each other in ways that are not COVID safe are you?”
Doocy ignored her and pressed on. He reminded her that it’s the exact same facility but she said “This is not kids being kept in cages.”
Psaki went on to give the excuse that the facility will follow the same standards as the other HHS facilities and that it wasn’t a replication of Trump’s policies. She said, “we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border. That would be inhumane.”
So according to the democrats, depending on who is president, the “cages” are inhumane with Trump and not inhumane under Biden.
Jen went on to speak glowingly about the facility. She said, “We need to find places that are safe under COVID protocols for kids to be, where they can have access to education, health and mental services consistent with their best interest.”
So during the questioning, in order to defend Biden, Psaki’s main goal was to try to blame the influx of illegal children on COVID-19 by saying they had to make more space for them because of social distancing but the truth is that Biden’s open borders policies are the main reason that we have a crisis at the border.
In January, 5707 kids arrived at the border alone, up from the 4855 the month before and lots more are on the way.
The word is out about Biden’s open borders and illegals are heading to America from every corner of the world.
Biden is no longer sending children back to their home countries if traveling with an adult who isn’t their parent; border wall construction has stopped; Trump’s policy requiring non-Mexican illegals to stay in Mexico until their court date was stopped and Biden has basically stopped all deportations of illegals (although a new court order has temporarily suspended that insanity).
And with so many illegals headed to the United States, many aren’t even getting stopped. They are getting past Border Patrol.
There is no way to know who they are, if they are criminals or if they have COVID-19. And what about the ones who actually get “caught?” Are they being tested for COVID-19? Doesn’t look like it.
Illegals don’t seem to be screened for security OR health issues.
CBP told PolitiFact that they do initial inspections for symptoms or risk factors associated with COVID-19 and “pursuant to longstanding infectious disease protocols” and refers them to local clinics or hospitals for “appropriate medical evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.”
They refer them. So no. No testing by the government and no mandatory testing anywhere else. Off they go…
Republican Bill Hagerty from Tennessee says that there are currently 30,000 illegals at the border right now. And that’s just the ones that they have detained.
Under Biden’s open borders catastrophe, our country now has no health or safety security whatsoever. And during a pandemic.
What a sick puppy Biden is. And the rest of the democrats.
EVERYONE is allowed into our country…Everyone. Sick people, sex traffickers and their victims, human traffickers and their victims, drug traffickers, and every other kind of criminal…
And even the healthy people who aren’t criminals who come into our country are still going to be using our resources, stealing jobs from Americans and getting taxpayer funded benefits.
And you know why? Because they are future democrat voters.
America last again under Biden.
And again. And again.
