(PoliticalLookout.com)- After riding the wave of Social Justice Warrior outrage about the separating of illegal alien children from adults at the border, President Joe Biden is reportedly continuing the practice and pretty much getting away from it,
USA Today reported the news that the Biden administration continues to shelter children “separated from close family members” once they are apprehended by Border Patrol agents.
And while Republicans share the concern about separating children from their parents, the practice of separating children and adults at the border is done for a myriad of reasons, one of which is protecting children from smugglers. Oftentimes children are separated from the adults who smuggle them across the border to protect them from human traffickers.
But USA Today focused on the migrant children who, they say, “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.”
A perfectly reasonable law, but something that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says constitutes a “concentration camp.”
USA Today also quotes Lisa Koop, an associate director of legal services at the National Immigrant Justice Center, who made the baseless claim that the separation of families under the Trump administration was more extreme than under the Biden administration – when they are exactly the same.
“Though not as dramatic as Trump administration-era family separations, which unleashed a furious backlash, separating children from close relatives could be equally detrimental, said Lisa Koop, associate director of legal services at the National Immigrant Justice Center, a legal advocacy group that represents young immigrants,” the outlet reported.
But no evidence was provided that the system works any differently under the Biden administration.
Over 4,000 illegal alien children were transferred to the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement in January, which is the agency that cares for children after they crossed the border. It’s an increase over December’s 3,330 in December and roughly four times the amount that arrived last October…when former President Donald Trump was in office.
It turns out that stopping the construction of the wall and promising to end deportations of illegal aliens and provide a pathway to citizenship causes a rush at the border…who could have predicted that?
Meanwhile, most Democrats are completely silent over the fact that Joe Biden not only continues to “separate families” but has even opened up new migrant facilities – or “cages,” as they were called during the Trump administration – despite being barely six weeks into the job.
