Joe Biden is still separating migrant families at the border

March 7, 2021

You all remember the outcry over the last four years when the left learned that Donald Trump was separating migrant families at the border and keeping children in cages, with the screams of this is not who we are and with the promises during the election to immediately reverse this cruel policy. (Which actually began under Barack Obama by the way.)

We already learned that Joe Biden reneged on his campaign promise to stop putting children in cages, and in fact has expanded the program–although the left and the media have rebranded them as migrant children detention centers–and now we are learning the the President is still separating migrant families as well. Here is more:

The Biden administration is still sheltering children separated from close family members in federal facilities for weeks on end – something immigrant advocates and attorneys had hoped the new administration would resolve by now. 

Hold it, time out! Notice now how the article uses the term “sheltering” instead of saying locking them up as they did when Donald Trump was President in order to soften the truth of the situation? Anyway, I digress. Back to the story:

The migrant children often arrive with a grandparent, older sibling or other relative but are separated until federal officials can confirm the accompanying adult is their relative, as required under U.S. law. The procedure, which is different from the highly controversial Trump administration policy of separating immigrant parents from their children, is designed to protect minors from human traffickers and grant them legal protections.

Again the article tries to draw a clear distinction between the two administrations and their policies but in the end both administrations held or are holding children separated from family members until verification could be made, and the goal of protecting children from human traffickers is the same under Joe Biden as it was under Donald Trump. The only exception is that if the adults claimed to be the children’s parents they also had to be vetted under the previous administration. You could legitimately argue from this point that that means the children were better protected under Donald Trump.

But it also classifies the youngsters as “unaccompanied minors” and places them in federal shelters until a sponsor or adult is vetted, a process that can take several weeks or even months.

“It really does look and feel in many ways like a parent-child separation,” Koop said. “The trauma of the separation is very similar.”

What we have here is an admission by Joe Biden that Donald Trump’s policy was the correct one and that the Democrats and the media were lying all along about what was happening at the border. And yet with the exception of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez every single Democrat in the Federal government is either ignoring this story or is a hypocrite. Their silence is deafening…

    It’s probably not Joe. One of his ‘handlers’. I don’t think Joe has a clue…
