A border facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, re-opened this week dedicated exclusively to holding children unaccompanied by their parents. President Trump had shuttered the facility built during the Obama/Biden administration that locked up kids in cages.
Both Obama and Biden get a free pass, but Trump who shut the place down, is blamed for the actions of Obama and Biden. Trump is the left’s whipping boy.
In ancient times young princes and princesses had someone who would have to take the punishment when the royal offspring would act up.
The difference between that and how trump is dealt with is the whipping boy would be a close friend of the prince, who would not like seeing their friend whipped. But the left makes up crimes in order to whip Trump.

The Biden administration claims they had to reopen the facility due to the pandemic.
Former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan said:
“Those facilities aren’t needed because of COVID. That’s absolutely not true. Those facilities are needed because this administration is now encouraging, incentivizing, and facilitating illegal entry in the United States and the numbers have skyrocketed.”
Over 78,000 migrants were apprehended while illegally crossing the border in January, Morgan said. Over 3,500 migrants were apprehended daily, though the number is likely closer to 4,500 when accounting for the people who evaded law enforcement officials.
“They’re reinstating catch and release, that’s why these facilities are needed because they’ve created a new crisis,” Morgan said.
Morgan continued, asserting that the administration is releasing illegal immigrants into the country and “preventing ICE from lawfully deporting 90% of those that they’re encountering here illegally.”
An internal memo sent Wednesday and obtained by The Associated Press authorizes facility operators to use government funding for transport fees “in the event that a sponsor is not able to pay fees associated with commercial airfare, and a child’s physical release would be otherwise delayed.” HHS declined to say how many flights would be funded.

HHS has drastically cut its capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly all of the department’s 7,100 beds for immigrant children are full. Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents are apprehending an average of more than 200 children crossing the border without a parent per day. Most Border Patrol facilities aren’t equipped for long-term detention, with children forced to sleep on mats in cells where the lights stay on around the clock.
