Biden Opens Gated Compound for 700 Illegal Immigrant Children - AOC, Dems Silent
Facility opened this weekend By Biden administration
The Democrats' battle cry throughout the four years of Donald Trump's presidency was "kids in cages," referring to illegal immigrant children being detained as the media fanned the liberal flames amid a push to open borders.
But this weekend, the Biden administration opened an exact same gated migrant facility for illegal immigrant children in Carrizo Springs, Texas.
The camp will hold up to 700 illegal migrant children.
However, there hasn't been so much of a peep from AOC or any open border lobbyists.
During Trump's presidency, the facility was open for one month before being shut down.
But the Democrats used it to cause a far-left outrage fanned by the establishment media.

Thomas Homan, who was Obama’s executive associate director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement between May 2013 and 2017, was responsible for “promoting public safety and national security by maintaining direct oversight of critical ICE programs and operations to identify, locate, arrest, detain and remove illegal aliens from the United States."
“I’ve been to that facility, where they talk about cages."
"That facility was built under President Obama under (Homeland Security) Secretary Jeh Johnson."
"I was there because I was there when it was built."

USA Today reported on the facility:
The facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, will house up to 700 migrant children within the next two weeks, according to a statement Tuesday from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency within the Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for migrant children.
The temporary Influx Care Facility will be used for children ages 13 and older who have been medically cleared of COVID-19, the statement said.
The move came after President Joe Biden signed a raft of executive orders aimed at unwinding the Trump administration’s hardline immigration policies, including establishing a task force to reunify children separated from their parents or guardians at the border under former President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy.
As he seeks to fulfill his campaign promise to swiftly undo Trump’s immigration actions, Biden is facing hurdles because of the rise in migrant apprehensions at the Southwest border and reduced capacity at facilities over COVID-19 concerns.
Former President Barack Obama detained 90,000 immigrant children in cages during his time in office.
Trump's former campaign manager Brad Parscale said at the time:
“Over 90,000 kids were detained under Obama. And no one cared.”
