It appears some people at some point just reach a point where they have to stop lying and changing the language.
According to the Washington Times:
The White House and Homeland Security may not want to call the border a “crisis” but the top health official in charge of caring for the massive surge of children is using the term, telling a federal judge the emergency shelters they’ve opened to detain the kids is delivering “a crisis standard of care.”
Cindy Huang, who runs the Office of Refugee Resettlement at Health and Human Services, called the number of children rushing the border “historic” and “unprecedented,” undercutting President Biden’s assertion that the current surge happens “every year.”
Ms. Huang said her department is so overwhelmed that that normal rules about facilities and care have gone out the window and they must cut some corners as they rush to open Emergency Intake Sites — known in government-speak as EIS.
“EIS are by definition temporary emergency sites, and are focused on providing a crisis standard of care until UC can be transferred to a better-resourced setting,” she wrote in a declaration filed with a federal judge in California.
The Biden team has fiercely defied calls to label the border situation a crisis.
