Joe Biden reopens migrant children detention centers

February 23, 2021

We all remember the grief that Donald Trump took for continuing Barack Obama’s policy of sending migrant children to detention centers and how it became a big issue during the campaign when Joe Biden promised to end the policy. Well, that was then and this is now and Joe Biden is reopening the migrant children detention centers. Here is more:

More than 200 migrant teenagers on Monday were sent to a reopened facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, according to CBS News, with plans to expand the number of detained children to 700 in facilities across the country.

Both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris strongly condemned such facilities during the 2020 presidential campaign, accusing former President Donald Trump of putting children and “babies in cages.”

Biden promised during the campaign that he would close the facilities holding detained unaccompanied migrant children. 

“It’s a temporary reopening during COVID-19,” she said referring to the decision to reopen the facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas. “Our intention is very much to close it.”

This is not kids being kept in cages,” she said.

Did you notice in there that not only is Joe Biden continuing to lock up migrant children but also that he is expanding the centers?

“We don’t know how many kids are going to be coming in the upcoming days, or weeks or months, and so we have to make sure that our contingency plans include preparing for even more bed space than we think we might need,” the HHS official said.

Days? Weeks? Months? Does that sound like Joe Biden has any plans to stop putting kids in cages, er I mean detention centers, anytime soon? It doesn’t to me either. Promise made, promise broken…

    And the kids and their “families” will end up resettled in the rural red states and then they peddle their “craft.” Think gangs.. We are already flooded here in Amish land. Store announcements are made in Spanish at the local walmart.

      That’s the plan Bunkerville, make sure they get into the red states and have voting rights. The end is near at that point!
