A top Biden official admitted they’re ‘cutting corners’ in order to open up Migrant Facilities faster in hopes of lessening the unaccompanied minors ‘crisis’.
Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki (except for her one Freudian slip) and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas may not want to call the migrant poring over the border a “crisis” but Biden’s top health official has no such qualms.
Cindy Huang, who runs the Office of Refugee Resettlement at Health and Human Services which is in charge of caring for the massive surge of children is using the term, telling a federal judge the emergency shelters they’ve opened to detain the kids is delivering “a crisis standard of care.”
Biden ‘Cutting Corners’ to Open Migrant Facilities Faster
In her seven-page declaration, Cindy Huang shockingly admitted to Judge Dolly M. Gee that in addition to using the term “crisis,” to describe the Border situation.
The ORR director told Judge Gee that the emergency Migrant Facilities that the Biden administration has been building can’t meet the usual building standards because:
“they are novel temporary facilities implemented with urgency to address the historic number of children arriving at the border.”
Huang said it would be “nearly impossible” to create enough Migrant Facilities quickly enough if they had to meet the full medical standards of the regular Migrant Facilities for children.
“As an initial matter, it is important to understand that the current influx is not limited to the January-March time period, but is an ongoing challenge that will likely increase in severity in the coming weeks and months,”
Huang went on to call the number of children rushing the border “historic” and “unprecedented,” undercutting President Biden’s assertion that the current surge happens “every year.”
Huang added that her department is so overwhelmed that that normal rules about facilities and care have gone out the window.
Even going so far as to admit that the Office of Refugee Resettlement at Health and Human Services must cut some corners as they rush to open Emergency Intake Sites — known in government-speak as EIS.
Huang wrote in a declaration filed with a federal judge in California:
“EIS are by definition temporary emergency sites, and are focused on providing a crisis standard of care until UC can be transferred to a better-resourced setting,”
Team Biden fiercely attacks reporters calling Biden’s Border Kerfuffle a ‘crisis.’
As we mentioned above, on March 18 TuskerDaily reported that White House press secretary Jen Psaki slipped up and spoke the quiet part out loud when she called the border situation a “Crisis”.
Of course, just seconds later, putting on her best ‘How Dare You’ face as she recanted with a voice that implied the reporter was a liar.
Biden lies by blaming Trump for the ‘Crisis’ that isn’t a crisis, while also claiming it happens ‘every year’
And at a press conference two weeks ago President Joe Biden downplayed the notion of a crisis, insisting the surge was cyclical:
“There is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March. That happens every year,”
Biden also added the percentage of people during the Biden Administration’s first three months (Biden claimed 28%) has been even less than under Trump’s last few months (Biden claimed 31%).
Despite, Joe Biden’s delirium, as you can see in the chart below, the 2021 surge has been unprecedented and nowhere near the illegal immigration numbers the Trump administration had in 2020.
Border Patrol numbers back Huang up.
That is by far the record for any month, and it was double the rate of February.
And Homeland Security has already stated that they are expecting to apprehend 22,000 unaccompanied minors in April.
Huang’s filing came in response to a court-appointed independent monitor, who raised questions about the care children were receiving at the emergency Migrant Facilities the Biden administration has rushed to build.
Under the Flores Agreement, UACs are supposed to be moved out from Border Patrol custody within 72 hours. But the Biden administration is blatantly breaking the law by holding many of these migrant children held at border facilities for more than a week.
As of Friday, Homeland Security said there were nearly 3,900 UACs still in Border Patrol custody and nearly 17,000 in the Health Department-run shelters.
