The Biden administration is going to use a third convention center to house illegal migrant children, but don’t worry, because it’s not a crisis, it’s a circumstance. Or is it a challenge? I’ve lost track at this point.
San Antonio’s Freeman Expo Center is now being turned into an Emergency Intake Center for illegal migrant children who come across the border without their lousy parents, who sent them on a thousand-mile-plus journey to our southern border by themselves. The off-the-books plan is to bring their parents up and give them citizenship so that they can vote for Democrats.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and its Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) the facility will be able to house up to 2,400 children. Think about that. This is the third facility and it will hold 2,400 people and the Biden administration says it’s not a crisis. They won’t even allow reporters inside facilities at the border to see what’s really going on.
“The Emergency Intake Site will provide ORR with the needed capacity to accept children from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) into its care where they can be safely processed, cared for and either released to a sponsor or transferred to an appropriate ORR shelter for longer-term care. The Emergency Intake Site is intended for use as a temporary measure,” the agency said in a statement.
The other two facilities that have already been converted are the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas that will hold up to 2,300 children and the San Diego Convention Center that will hold up to 1,400.
There are at least five other spots that have been opened to take in the future registered Democrats, and even the Pentagon is accepting requests to keep thousands of kids at Fort Bliss. Joint Base San Antonio Lackland is taking in several hundred as well. In 22 states ORR is now running over 200 facilities. Biden recently approved $86 million of taxpayer dollars to send illegal migrant families to stay in hotels. HOTELS!
On Tuesday, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff asked about facilities there being used to house illegals and told reporters that there hasn’t yet been an agreement.
“We do have facilities there. They’re climate control. They’re large. But we are talking about, how will we handle security? Who would be the food provider, who will actually be managing the place? It’d be pretty much our job to, if we do it, to coordinate with them and to make the space available, but no agreements been reached yet. We’re just now talking about a possible contract,” he said.
The US experienced a spike in illegal border crossings in February on top of an increase of more than 3,600 children without parents from January. Border Patrol officials are trying to handle the surge and the Biden administration has blocked any photos being taken, though some have been leaked.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted out some photos that were leaked of the facilities holding illegal migrant children. He said the facility he and 18 other senators visited was built to house about 250 people and that there are now over 4,000. In the photos you can see children in foil blankets lying right next to each other, no social distancing space at all.
These are the pictures the Biden administration doesn’t want the American people to see. This is why they won’t allow the press.

Cruz also pointed out that there are illegal migrant children who have tested positive for coronavirus and they are being houses with other children. The senator said that the Donna facility they visited has a rate of 10 percent COVID positive, which is higher than average population rates.
The CBP facility in Donna, Texas is a tragic superspreader event caused by the Biden admin.
Per CBP, the Donna facility has a 10% positivity rate. Roughly 4000 aliens are cramped together into cages.

You can watch a video posted on Facebook where Senator Cruz tells all about what’s really going on at our southern border.
Biden told reporters in Washington that under the previous administration, unaccompanied children would “starve to death” after being expelled from the country. It was a total lie.
“No previous administration did that either, except Trump. I’m not going to do it. I’m not going to do it,” he added.
Stephen Miller, a top former immigration adviser to President Donald Trump, said that Biden’s statement was “spectacularly false” and “a grave smear on our border agents.”
Biden’s words mean that our border agents would drive children out into the desert and leave them there to die of dehydration and/or starvation. It was an incredible insult to the men and women in the Border Patrol. In fact, I believe it would be criminal to do so. Not one Fake News outlet questioned Biden’s lies.
Miller noted that people who crossed our border illegally were returned to Mexico and that children without parents were taken back to their countries of origin and reunited with their families. It’s one thing when politicians throw spin on a political issue, but it’s quite another when you have the president of the United States telling a bald-faced lie about the previous administration.
“This humane policy from President Trump brought unaccompanied minor numbers to record lows. Biden’s disastrous decision to exempt minors from Title 42, and to stop the at-home reunification process in favor of domestic resettlement, single-handedly created this crisis,” he wrote.
