The NY Times report was one of the first times liberal elites spoke truth to the human rights abuses at the Southern border. The report stated, “Migrant children are being forced to sleep on gym mats with foil sheets and go for days without showering as the Border Patrol struggles to handle thousands of young Central Americans who are surging across the southwestern border, some of them as young as a year old.”
Leecia Welch visited the migrant holding facility in Donna, Texas. Welch told the Times, “It’s an urgent situation. These children are caught up in a crisis.”According to the NY Times, the facility can only legally hold 250 migrants, but the Biden Administration is holding 1,000 illegal immigrants causing immediate health concerns.
Under federal law, the Biden administration’s border patrol can only hold migrant children for 72 hours in one of these detention centers. Axios reports that migrant children are being kept in these conditions “for more than 10 days.” Migrant Detention Facilities, like the one in Donna, Texas, were never meant to house migrant children.
Sen. Murphy tweeted: “Just left the border processing facility. 100s of kids packed into big open rooms. In a corner, I fought back tears as a 13-year-old girl sobbed uncontrollably, explaining through a translator how terrified she was, having been separated from her grandmother and without her parents.”
Gov. Abbott released a statement saying:

“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 are unacceptable and inhumane. 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. 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.”
These children are treated as commodities by politicians and human traffickers. It’s easy to forget that these children made a harrowing journey because of the selfishness of adults.
These photos were taken within the last few days. There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment there are an average of 3,000 people in custody here. The illegal immigrants are separated by age or physical size depending on room. pic.twitter.com/kFmZgTG2Iv

From @axios, photos (provided by Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar) of an overcrowded migrant youth holding center in Texas. This kind of thing caused an enormous eruption of outrage and emotion during the Trump years.https://t.co/9MVosR2BYQ pic.twitter.com/uXi7zXs8uq

Now more photos from Project Veritas show what it looks like inside the Donna, Texas border facility. A source inside the facility told Project Veritas:
“These photos were taken within the last few days. There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment, there is an average of 3,000 people in custody here. They [illegal immigrants] are separated by age or physical size depending on room. Fifty were COVID positive in these cells over the last few days. There have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults, and daily medical emergencies.”

When James O’Keefe visited the migrant facility late last week, he claims the “facility’s staff” told James to get off the property because “the location was ‘private property’ and journalists needed to keep their distance.”
Project Veritas also claims to have a source inside the Department of Homeland Security that provided a document that states, “in the days leading up to March 30 and should a caravan form, CBP [Customs and Border Patrol] personnel in the region will work closely with and maintain constant communication with CBP Partners including ICE, as well as local security and immigration agencies.”
Biden created this border crisis. The liberal mainstream media refused to give this the proper coverage when the crisis began. Conservative drug them out of their entrenched fox holes defending the Biden administration after leaked footage showed that this is, in fact, a “kids in cages” situation created by Biden.
This is a crisis. The Biden Administration created it.
Q: “Would you have tried to [cross the border illegally] when Donald Trump was president?”
A: “Definitely not.”
Q: “Did you come here because Joe Biden was elected president?”
A: “Basically” pic.twitter.com/E0jhdg6UP4

While he was campaigning:
Host: “Are you prepared to say tonight that you and President Obama made a mistake about the deportations? Why should latinos trust you?
Biden begins his response chastising the host for comparing Obama to Trump. He then lies and says, “we didn’t lock people up in cages. We didn’t separate families.” Not only did Joe and Barrack “lock people up in cages,” their administration built those cages.
Biden: “What I would do as President is several more things. Because things have changed, I would, in fact, make sure that … there is … that we immediately surge the border all those people seeking asylum.” This isn’t taken out of context or deceptively edited. These are the jumbled words of our President while campaigning for the Democrat nomination.
