Somehow, it’s okay that these kids have been separated from their parents, because it is President Biden doing it, and not Donald Trump.
The separation occurring under President Biden is different only in that it is happening on the other side of the border, with parents making the decision to let their children cross alone because they correctly perceive the Biden administration as more welcoming of illegal immigrants. By this point, Biden knows his policies are causing this, but he refuses to change them. So how is that not cruelty?
According to the Washington Examiner:
“The number of migrant children being held in Border Patrol facilities is more than double the record that was set in June 2019 during the Trump administration, the Washington Examiner has learned.
“As of Sunday, 5,767 unaccompanied minors were being detained inside cells at Border Patrol facilities near the U.S.-Mexico border. In comparison, only 2,600 children were documented in custody at the height of the 2019 border crisis, according to federal data exclusively obtained Monday evening.
“The figures underscore the magnitude of the situation on the border, which President Joe Biden and Democrats have refused to recognize as a ‘crisis.’ The number of children in Border Patrol facilities is also far higher than the number of children separated from their parents under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” initiative that mandated children be taken from their parents so that the adults could be prosecuted. In other words, Biden is presiding over more unaccompanied children in government custody than when Trump intentionally separated migrant children from their families. Federal data for the end of Trump’s tenure were not available.”
