Texas Democrat Stabs Biden in the Back by Outing Administration on Migrant Crisis
The Biden administration has worked hard to make the American people believe that theyâve been better at handling the crisis of migrants coming over the southern border into the United States from Mexico and other countries to the south, but it appears that even those in his part are having trouble keeping the party line together.
Not only have Republicans called out the Democratic administration, but now even a Texas Democrat has claimed that Biden isnât being entirely honest with American voters over what is an issue of monumental importance to a lot of America.
According to a report inÂ The Daily WireÂ Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) has out and out accused the Biden administration of misleading the American public concerning President Joe Bidenâs level of success about their immigration policies.
This accusation came on the heels of the Department of Homeland Security releasing photos of the migrant processing facilities on the Texas border town of Donna, Texas on Tuesday showing sparsely occupied plastic cages where it has been widely reported children were previously packed in tightly, seeming to indicate that the Biden administration has effectively dealt with the crisis fo illegal immigrants that have been making their way into the United States, some by hook and some by crook.
According to Cuellar, the photos are wildly misleading and they only seem to show low census in the child detention centers because there is still a tent compound flooding with children but itâs in another section of the compound. The children and teens have officially been moved from the custody of Customs and Border Patrol Patrol into the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.
âAll theyâre doing is theyâre moving kids from one tent to the other tent and saying, âOh, theyâre not in the Border Patrol [custody],â but theyâre right next door,â Cuellar told Border Report. âTheyâre just next door in HHS.â
TheÂ statementÂ that came along with the reportedly misleading photos from Tuesday shoed DHS knowing that the children were in HHS custody, but still pointed to the almost empty containment units as some sort of glowing success for the Biden administration (when he literally just passed the kids off from one department to another).
DHS again pounded the drum of blaming the Trump administration for any and all ills associated with migrants on the southern border:
âDHS and HHS were left to rebuild the capacity to shelter and process the children, after having inherited a system that had been entirely dismantled by the prior administration. These photos demonstrate the tremendous progress that DHS and its partners have made to safely and efficiently transfer unaccompanied children out of CBP custody and into the care of the Department of Health and Human Services.â
That statement wasnât the only one to be handed down from on high as the newly minted administration tries to do damage control on their frustratingly troubling inability to do anything about the warm bodies that are packing out more and more government-run facilities.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki began her Tuesday press briefing also pointing the finger at (well you know, anyone but Biden, but also) Trump specifically:
âAfter four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head-on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system. Thatâs our objective,â Psaki said. âAfter coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border, something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration.â
For his part, however, Cuellar could keep silent no longer, laying blame at the feet of his partyâs leader, saying that the Biden administration needs to do more to recognize that what theyâre doing isnât working:
âI did notice that the president did not talk about the border. There is a border crisis, no ifs about it,â Cuellar said, referring to Bidenâs speech to Congress. âThe numbers are still high.â
âTheyâre doing a little better on the upflow itself but what about the inflow?â Cuellar asked. âThatâs people coming in. Those numbers are still coming in.â
