Texas Gov. Greg Abbott didn’t mince words on Friday when he laid into Joe Biden for his disastrous open border policies.
Worse, the conditions he described at migrant detention facilities in his state are nothing short of shocking.
'The Biden Administration has been an abject failure when it comes to ensuring the safety of unaccompanied minors who cross our border. The conditions unaccompanied minors face in these federally run facilities is unacceptable and inhumane,” he said, Breitbart News reported.
'From a lack of safe drinking water in one location to a COVID-19 outbreak in another, the Biden Administration has no excuse for subjecting these children to these kinds of conditions,' the Texas governor added. 'President Biden's refusal to address the border crisis is not only enabling criminal actors like human traffickers and smugglers, but it is exposing innocent unaccompanied children to illness and potentially unsafe living conditions.'
'The administration must act now to keep these children safe, secure our border, and end this humanitarian crisis,' Abbott said.
The outlet continued:
Sources in the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector indicate they are still apprehending between 400 and 500 unaccompanied children per day. Agents are holding, according to the source, over 2100 unaccompanied children in Border Patrol facilities and cannot keep up with the backlog in processing and transfer to HHS.
HHS is responsible for providing suitable detention space for the children under current law.
The governor also announced the deployment Texas Department of State Health Services resources and personnel to the Carrizo Springs Facility to investigate, identify, and combat the COVID-19 outbreak. As for the Midland, Texas facility, Abbott indicated the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality notified federal officials of the need to address the serious water issues.
Once again, as bad as this is for the migrants and for our country, this makes our ‘mainstream media’ look even more disgraceful and akin to Democratic Party propagandists.
Remember when President Trump was in office? Ever hear about migrants have dangerous water to drink?
Neither did we. And we would have, believe me.
Pathetic, all the way around, for the media and for the administration that created these horrid conditions.
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
