Now that photographs of migrant kids in cages at the southern border are showing up in the alternative press, anyway, one Democrat known for being in front of the cameras is openly questioning the Biden team’s approach to processing the children requesting asylum at the southern border.
“[N]ow Jonathan, we have a situation that is a humanitarian concern,” she said. “We do have issues with any number of children. The numbers are coming up, but I will say that the Biden administration has met with members of Congress. They have a plan. The plan does not look like it’s working at this time, but you have to get it implemented.”…
“[W]e need to put in more resources so that our asylum protocols can go quickly and those that do not meet the standards — they have to be returned safely and securely,” Lee continued. “But what the administration is saying that they’re not going to cage children. They’re not going to turn children back to their deaths. They’re not going to have young girls, 13 years old, subject to rape and pillage. And so it does look a little unseemly. But these are human beings. And so, they’re not coming to endanger our lives. They’re coming basically to save their lives.”
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Rep. Jackson Lee is absolutely right that this is a humanitarian concern. Where she goes off the rails is in saying that the Biden people won’t do this or that as whistleblowers from within the Border Patrol have already sent photographic images to Project Veritas showing children sleeping in what amounts to cages. What makes the situation more maddening is that the illegal aliens themselves say that they wouldn’t have tried to cross the border if President Donald Trump had won the election.
That most likely includes parents sending children across the border.
