Texas Governor Greg Abbott has called the border crisis a 'humanitarian disaster' as COVID cases surge among teens held in a hastily constructed federal holding facility for child migrants with no drinkable water.
The detention center in Midland County, currently holding more than 400 youths, was opened on Sunday after federal officials converted a 'man camp' for oilfield workers to help handle a massive surge in illegal border crossings, including many unaccompanied minors.
More than 10 percent of the camp's population has tested positive for COVID-19 and at least one child had to be hospitalized. And on Friday, Texas officials issued a dire warning that well water used at the holding site could be contaminated with arsenic or other toxins.
'We've known this is a crisis. What I learned in just the past hour shows that we are now dealing with a humanitarian disaster,' said Abbott, a Republican, in an interview with Fox News on Friday. 'There's no telling what could be in there, including the possibility of arsenic... So there is no viable, usable running water at the location in Midland.'
Officials say that there are now more than 14,000 migrant youths being held in federal custody. It is more than three times the largest number of children held under the previous administration, which was widely criticized for putting 'kids in cages.'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday insisted that President Joe Biden's administration 'has this under control' and continued to refuse to call the situation at the southern border a crisis.
The Biden administration refuses to allow journalists to visit the holding facilities, a break from the Trump administration, which even at the height of furious criticism allowed the press to tour holding facilities.
'People don't trust what they´re doing. They don´t feel secure,' said U.S. Rep. August Pfluger, a Republican who represents Midland. 'The lack of transparency only serves to magnify that problem.'
Biden has mostly avoided attacks from his party´s progressive wing. One of its top public faces, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, tweeted of reopening the Trump-era facility in Carrizo Springs, 'This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay - no matter the administration or party.'
But she also added that 'our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform' overnight, pinning the blame for the crisis squarely on Trump.
Really, Chyna Joey Xi has created the next increase in Chinese Covid-19 virus in America. It's a Super Spreader with 10 percent of those illegal entries found to have Covid.
No "President" and his Handlers have ever done so much disastrous, intentional wrongdoing in so short a period of time. But this is what the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat leftist liberal globalists are raging after.
To continue to Hype "the Chinese COVID-19 Crisis", Biden is now importing HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS" of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS" infected with the disease and distributing them, untracked, all around the country.
This will provide the numbers to continue to panic the public into accepting the FASCIST social controls, lockdowns, distancing, vaccines, masks, etc.
Progressive Marxists are destroying America, and it cannot be restored without a fight. They showed they are willing to use force in this last election. Stealing an election is force. Two divisions of soldiers on the streets of D.C. is force. A secret police scouring the country for dissenters is force.
They are pushing for a fight. They are very sure they cannot go too far.
Hmm...., just a thought,
The Biden facilities for children now set up don’t have hurricane fencing like the older ones did. The new ones use barbed and razor concertina wire - much cheaper and faster to install. Once the crisis at the border is resolved and the ‘observation’ towers are installed every 200 yards on perimeter, the facilities will be ready for the ‘other uses’ this administration has in mind, re-education camps for those that oppose the iron fisted Progressive Marxist ideological uptopia.
