Kids In Cages Redux

| February 24, 2021


Pic of caged kids from the Obama Administration.

The left howled over kids being separated and held apart from parents illegally crossing the borders during the Trump years, if you recall. The facts this occurs daily everywhere among US citizens who commit crimes, and the “cages” were purpose built during Obama’s administration were immaterial. Fortunately Biden and company have halted this practice. Right?

Media Silent as Biden Illegally Holds Unaccompanied Migrant Children, Says Border Patrol Union
BOB PRICE

The mainstream media is being silent as the Biden administration holds unaccompanied migrant children in Border Patrol custody longer than legally allowed, the head of the Border Patrol union stated. The minors are being held in the same “cages” the media and Democrat politicians loudly criticized the Trump administration for.

National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told Breitbart Texas that as of Monday, Border Patrol officials held more than 800 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) in custody. Despite the legal requirement to release the children to other federal agencies within 72 hours, more than 212 remained in custody longer than the legal limit.

“Today, [White House Press Secretary] Jen Psaski said the Administration could not hold the children in other locations due to the Covid protocols including social distancing,” Judd told Breitbart, “but what she didn’t tell the media was that the children in [Border Patrol’s] custody were being held in conditions that have nearly no way to social distance.”

Psaki’s remarks came in a Tuesday press briefing in response to questions from Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy. Forbes tweeted a video of the exchange.

To be clear, Judd states that the Biden administration is holding unaccompanied minors in Border Patrol custody longer than the law allows in conditions where social distancing cannot be maintained in order to keep social distancing in other federal facilities.

“The hypocrisy from the left and the mainstream media truly shows they care nothing for the children they used as pawns to attack President Trump.” Judd said.

Care nothing? Perhaps. They care more to use what and whomever they can as a bludgeon to further their agenda. Read the entire article here: Breitbart

    if it wasn’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

    • FuzeVT says:

      There is a standard – Lib good, not-lib bad. That’s all you need to know.

      It would save a lot of time if the media would just come out and say, “If you’re liberal and believe all the right things [note: the ALL part is important], you’re good and right and wonderful. If you believe anything that differs from the liberal current truth™, then you are bad.”

      That way the rules would be more easily understood.

      • ChipNASA says:

        AND you forgot the Cuomo rule, if you’re no longer of any use or are in any way toxic to the agenda, YOU GET EATEN or THROWN TO THE MEDIA WOLVES!!!

    • 5JC says:

      But these are happy cages. Nothing like those nasty cages that George Bush built and Trump put millions of kids in. In fact the kids are practically begging to go in there.

  2. My, My, My says:

    Maybe we need AOC and “other dems” to visit these border facilities so they can talk at us some more. Oh the humanity.

      • penguinman000 says:

        She “tweeted”, that’s a far cry the dog and pony shows she helped conduct when Trump was in office.

        First Biden backs off of the $15/hr minimum wage promise and now he’s “putting kids in cages”. She was apoplectic when Trump held these positions. Dog and pony shows galore. Now that it’s her “team” she can barely string together 280 characters via a phone app to address it. I think the word you are looking for is hypocrite.

        She is consistent in one way though, consistently out of her depth.

        • Poetrooper says:

          Say what you will about LC, he’s pretty consistent.

          About being unwilling to admit to Democrat inconsistency…

          • LC says:

            She’s consistent on her principles. If someone listens to one radio station all the time, you could say they listen to it consistently. If they change stations, you could say their inconsistent in their listening habits.

            But nobody, nobody says, “Sure, they listen to the same station, but one day they had the volume at 16, and today, even though it was the same station,
            the volume was only at 12… totally inconsistent!”

            • LC says:

              *they’re.

              My grammar was inconsistent. That doesn’t make the expressed sentiment inconsistent, just my grammar.

            • Poetrooper says:

              Your analogy is surprisingly apt as it is not her ideological consistency that’s in question, rather the volume and intensity of her response: loud, harsh and melodramatic against Trump while much more muted in response to her own party’s similar presidential actions.

              It’s hypocritical and you know it’s hypocritical, but being Dem-Lite, you’ll never admit it.

              Oh, and in the case of true believers like Ocrazio, there’s a one-word descriptor for her form of ideological consistency:

              Fanaticism…

        • LC says:

          So we’re in agreement that she’s consistent in her principled opposition to this, you’re just upset that she’s not complaining with the same amount of volume? Those goalposts are moving so fast I feel like I’m getting whiplash.

          FYI, she’s also spoken out about Biden backing down from the $15 minimum wage. What’s next, do you want to complain about her raising $5M for Texans? I disagree with her on plenty of things, but boy, she’s putting a lot of other Congresscritters to shame with both her ideological consistency and her actions. Not that that’s hard, mind you.

          • Penguinman000 says:

            1. I didn’t move any goal posts. You are intentionally missing the point. A tweet or two is not principled opposition. Actually putting boots on ground, proposing legislation, etc.. are examples of principled opposition. Slactivism is narcissistic and shallow. Say what you want about BLM or ANTIFA. At least those turds are taking action. She doesn’t even have the intellect or testicular fortitude to propose legislation of substance. Much less speak with the same conviction and passion as she did when Trump was in office.

            2. What action? She has a seat at the big boy table. What has she attempted that is of substance and supported with anything resembling a plan? She has squandered an incredible opportunity to affect substantive change. Just like the BLM retards. Acting like a reactionary dickhead, or in her case the oxymoron of a democratic socialist, is unproductive and narcissistic. She’s the political equivalent of emo kids in high school. No substance just railing against “the man”.

            3. Radio station? Reductio ad absurdum much? To paraphrase Heinlein, people aren’t potatoes. The comparison holds no water.

  3. KoB says:

    Something else that the Oba…er..Biden Admin has circled back to. How do y’all like Obama’s 3rd term start anyway? If you think this is sketchy, just wait until Sniffy Joe is replaced by Moosechell soon. Guess his 4th term will be when HUH (Heels Up Harris) is elected in ’24. 5th Term in ’28 when Moosechell and 6th term in ’32. We should all be dead or graduated from the re-education camps by then screaming Sieg Heil.

    • Devtun says:

      Yeah, pray Comrade Josef Bidenov, Blow Dry Nan, and Crying Chuck don’t ram through H.R. 1 by shitcanning the Senate filibuster.

    • Holesome Marine says:

      Weren’t people like you saying that there’s no way Biden would win and Trump was going to serve three terms and blah blah blah?

      Also, is Joe dying and Kamala becoming President supposed to scare liberals or something? Maybe stop threatening them with an outcome they actually desire.

      Cope harder, buddy.

  4. Poetrooper says:

    As I have long maintained, it is the liberal media that is the real enemy. Without the air cover they fly for Democrats, the leftists now controlling the Democrat party wouldn’t be able to get away with a fraction of what they are now.

    The Democrats, fully aware that they can act with impunity, are emboldened to ever more outrageous attacks on the Constitution.

    When the time eventually arrives for sorting things out, the media need to be at the very top of the list.

  5. SFC D says:

    Looks a hell of a lot like what we lived in in Balad 2006. Wasn’t fancy but it was sufficient. And it ain’t a cage.

  6. Sapper3307 says:

    If aOc put some tred-mills in them cages we could power Texas.
    Just sayen

  7. QMC says:

    “Who put the built the cages, Joe?”
