The Biden/Harris response to America’s southern border crisis is either staggeringly incompetent or intentionally lackluster.
If the Democrat’s weak, lame response is intentional, they obviously want the flood of illegal immigration to continue.
So far, Biden has allowed more than 10,000 UACs – Unaccompanied Alien Children – to enter the U.S. And in the process, the Administration has begun playing games with the numbers – making it look like the number of UACs is decreasing, when, in fact, Biden is hastily releasing these lost children into the U.S. which skews the numbers.
The number of UACs in federal custody dropped from a high of nearly 23,000 in May to 15,550 on Wednesday, due in part to the speed at which they are being released. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas deployed a volunteer workforce from multiple federal agencies to assist HHS to quickly process, transfer, and ultimately release the UACs to sponsors.
One Member of Congress believes the Biden Administration should seek out professionals to deal with the children. In a statement released Wednesday, Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) highlighted the border crisis in the House Appropriation Committee’s first full markup for Fiscal Year 2022.
Gonzales spoke in support of Congressman Ken Calvert’s (CA) amendment requiring an emergency declaration from the president before deploying federal employees to the southern border:
“Every day I’m on the border. Every day I see unaccompanied children, by the thousands, that are left alone. Regardless of their legal status, these are innocent children, and we cannot have volunteers taking care of these children. We have to have professionals. In El Paso, there is 1,600 unaccompanied children at Fort Bliss, 120 of which have been there for greater than two months. This is a national crisis that deserves the attention if we are going to solve this, beyond just pushing a political football around.”Breitbart
Meanwhile, unaccompanied migrant children continue to pour into the U.S. by the thousands as the border crisis gets sadder and sadder.
According to Breitbart News, housing and caring for these UACs now costs U.S. taxpayers $6 million per day.
Where’s Kamala? She never did visit one of the unlicensed facilities where the children are being housed.
This is disgraceful.
