I don’t ever remember former President Donald Trump having such a problem with illegal immigrants pouring across the border that he had to consider using military bases, NASA facilities and large convention centers to house them while it was sorted out.
However, welcome to President Joe Biden’s America. Faced with one of the great border crises of our time, according to the Washington Examiner, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will reportedly utilize a convention center in Dallas, Texas to house some 3,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children.
Why would the Biden administration consider such a move? Because the situation is quite literally out of control. It’s a raging dumpster fire that nobody in the administration can figure out how to put out. It doesn’t help that they’re not even willing to use the term “crisis” to describe it, rather, they prefer the term “challenge” instead.
The Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas will reportedly house thousands of young illegal children while the administration continues to figure out what in the world to do with the influx of illegals pouring across the border.
Dallas City Manager T.C. Broadnax pledged to work closely with the administration in the effort to provide temporary shelter for the thousands of children, adding that the city will do its “best to support this humanitarian effort.”
Make no mistake — Broadnax probably should have thanked the administration for the unbelievable amount of money that the U.S. government will shell out to the city to make the monumental effort happen.
And I also have a feeling that plenty of residents in and around Dallas aren’t exactly going to be thrilled with the idea of thousands of illegal immigrants being housed next door.
After Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be tasked with the role of accommodating the influx of illegal immigrants, he released a statement about the state of children being held at border facilities.
“A Border Patrol facility is no place for a child,” Mayorkas said. “We are working in partnership with HHS to address the needs of unaccompanied children, which is made only more difficult given the protocols and restrictions required to protect the public health and the health of the children themselves. Our goal is to ensure that unaccompanied children are transferred to HHS as quickly as possible, consistent with legal requirements and in the best interest of the children.”

If the current pace of incoming illegal children stays even close to what it is now, by the end of 2021, experts predict some 117,000 unaccompanied minors will have crossed onto U.S. soil.
Let me remind you — Biden hasn’t been in office for two months and it’s already this bad. Can you even imagine what the coming months and years will bring?
