Biden has simply reopened the identical border facility that he and his woke VP decried Trump for utilizing in 2019 and Jen Psaki defended it this morning, as if it was fully totally different or one thing:
Right here’s extra from Fox News:
Psaki was requested by Fox Information why the Biden administration was reopening a facility for migrant kids in Texas — contemplating President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ historical past railing towards services for migrant kids whereas Donald Trump was president. She replied that their coverage is “to not expel unaccompanied kids who arrive on the border.”
“The method, the way it works, is that Customs and Border management proceed to switch unaccompanied kids to the HHS workplace of Refugee Resettlement,” Psaki defined, including that “can take a few days.”
Psaki stated that as a result of COVID-19 protocols, the social distancing necessities and capability limits at Refugee Resettlement Shelters have “been considerably decreased, as a result of, after all, you may’t have a baby in each mattress.”
Psaki stated that it’s a “short-term reopening throughout COVID-19,” and that the administration’s “intention could be very a lot to shut it, however we wish to be sure that we will comply with COVID protocols as unaccompanied minors come into the US.”
However Psaki was pressed additional, as the ability that has been reopened is similar facility that was utilized by the Trump administration in the summertime of 2019.
On the time, in an op-ed within the Miami Herald about his Latin America coverage revealed on June 24, 2019, then-candidate Joe Biden stated: “Below Trump, there have been horrifying scenes on the border of youngsters being saved in cages, tear-gassing asylum seekers, ripping kids from their moms’ arms.”
And in July 2019, then-candidate Sen. Kamala Harris stated that Trump “has pushed insurance policies that’s been about placing infants in cages on the border within the identify of safety,” as an alternative calling it “a human rights abuse being dedicated by the US authorities.”
Psaki, although, defended the reopening, saying that the administration “very a lot feels that method.”
“These are services,” Psaki stated. “Let me be clear right here, one, there’s a pandemic occurring.”
“This isn’t children being saved in cages,” Psaki continued. “It is a facility that was opened that’s going to comply with the identical requirements as different HHS services. It isn’t a replication. Actually not.”
She added: “That’s by no means our intention—of replicating immigration insurance policies of the previous administration.”
“However we’re in a circumstance the place we’re not going to expel unaccompanied minors on the border,” she continued. “That might be inhumane. That’s not what we’re going to do right here as an administration. We have to discover locations which might be secure and psychological companies in step with their finest pursuits.”
These persons are ridiculous. It was by no means placing kids in cages within the first place, however that’s precisely what all of them stated as a result of they hated Trump. Now they’re doing the very same factor and it’s all hunky dory as a result of COVID or one thing.
And guess who isn’t saying a peep about it?
This administration has established focus camps on the southern border of the US for immigrants, the place they’re being brutalized with dehumanizing situations and dying.
This isn’t hyperbole. It’s the conclusion of skilled evaluation ⬇️https://t.co/2dWHxb7UuL
