Kamala Harris: ‘Babies In Cages Is Human Rights Abuse’ Biden Opens: ‘Migrant Facility For Children’ Trump Used Summer 2019
Mainstream media has changed its language now that Biden is in office and Monday, Washington Post released a report titled, “First Migrant Facility For Children Opens Under Biden” and they are being called out for it.
VP Kamala Harris responded to President Trump’s immigration policies, “”You look at the fact that this is a president who has pushed policies that’s been about putting babies in cages at the border in the name of security when in fact what it is, is a human rights abuse being committed by the United States government.’ — remarks at NAACP forum Wednesday in Detroit,” ABC News reported.
According to Fox News, “Dozens of migrant teens boarded vans Monday for the trip down a dusty road to a former man camp for oil field workers here, the first migrant child facility opened under the Biden administration,” the Post reported from Carrizo Springs, Texas. “The emergency facility — a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 — is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.”
Today the White House Press Sec. defended the reopening of the facilities for migrants kids and this same facility was opened for a month in the summer of 2019 by President Trump. Jen Psaki circled around questions regarding their decision to put kids in cages at the border while also trying to say it is because of COVID.
Psaki said this facility opening is, “a temporary reopening during COVID-19, our intention is very much to close it, but we want to make sure we can follow COVID protocols.”
Rep. Burgess Owens translated the headline, “Alternate headline: Biden begins putting kids in cages.”

The decision for the Biden administration raised allegations of hypocrisy after the same officials condemned the Trump administration’s treatment of migrant children at the border.
Pskai continued, “That is never our intention of replicating the immigration policies of the past administration,” Psaki said. “But we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border. That would be inhumane. That is not what we’re going to do here as an administration. We need to find places that are safe under Covid protocols for kids to be where they can have access to education, health and mental services, consistent with their best interest.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki defends the administration’s creation and use of “migrant facilities for children” at the southern border:
“This is not kids being kept in cages."
