Correct.I thought this facility was for unaccompanied minors? That's what I read.Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., had some strong words for President Biden's administration after news surfaced that it was reopening a child migrant detention facility in Texas.
Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., piled on, tweeting: "Multiple administrations have made the callous choice to lock up thousands of children seeking refuge in the United States of America."
Besides decrying "kids in cages" under Trump, Biden also reportedly told lawmakers in 2019 that he would end child migrant detention. It appeared as though with this new facility that the administration was continuing the practice of detaining children even after rescinding a Trump-era policy that led to family separation.
Oopsie…more Biden BS.
