Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-California) is now defending Joe Biden and his administration’s lack of transparency at migrant children facilities, claiming it’s NOW ‘not appropriate for the media to see the conditions of Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ because they aren’t “permanent”?
“I don’t necessarily think that it’s appropriate for journalists to be inside centers that are not permanent places for children,”
“They’re processed out of those facilities as quickly as possible and as quickly as the facilities will allow,”
In spite of the fact that Sanchez made multiple, well-recorded, pandering trips to the very same facilities, with colleuges such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-New York).
Amazingly, Linda Sanchez saw no such privacy issues when criticizing the Trump administration for denying, at times, congressional members access to facilities.
Between the ‘Do as I Say, Not As I Do‘ Democrats like Rep. Linda Sanchez and the Clown World media, they’ll prove that their entire four-years worth of Trump hysterics was nothing but fraudulent outrage and Trump-Hate lies.
There are currently over 4000 migrant children being held by Customs and Border Protection and nearly 10,000 whose custody has been handed over to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Thousands of the youths in Border Protection Custody, however, have been held beyond the three-day limit set by federal guidelines, according to a CBS report.
Rep. Linda Sanchez Clarifies Her ‘Not appropriate’ Idiocy
In a public statement, Rep. Linda Sanchez tried clearing up her position, saying reporters were not being granted access to the facilities due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
She also admitted border facilities “are not adequate for the care of children, and they are doing everything they can to transfer children to HHS for safe processing.”
Claiming she is “committed to transparency and finding ways for [the] press to fully report the process at the border,” the congresswoman said the “safety and privacy” are more important at the moment.
She added that she looks forward to a solution from the Biden administration.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was scheduled to tour border housing this week, but the Department of Homeland Security was quick to say the press would not be permitted to accompany him.
Immigrant activists have criticized the new administration for their lack of transparency, demanding photos be released of the conditions at the facilities, which are all facing a rise in migrant crossings critics say the administration is quickly being overwhelmed by.
Numerous photos were released from migrant housing facilities during the Trump administration, with Democrats often using the term “kids in cages” to describe the conditions for minors captured at the border despite many of the facilities being built and utilized during the Obama administration.
Though some Democrats, like Ocasio-Cortez, have come forth during Biden’s first months to continue their criticism of the handling of minors at the border, the “kids in cages” rhetoric has been toned down, with Ocasio-Cortez even suggesting Biden has simply not had enough time to fix a broken system.
It’s only 2 mos into this admin & our fraught, unjust immigration system will not transform in that time.
That’s why bold reimagination is so impt.
DHS shouldn’t exist, agencies should be reorganized, ICE gotta go, ban for-profit detention, create climate refugee status & more.

From January to February, apprehensions at the border rose nearly 30 percent and the Department of Homeland Security has said the US is in a position to encounter more individuals illegally crossing the southern border in the next few months than they “have in the last twenty years.”
Hysterically, just mere seconds later when asked by a reporter ‘what did you call it?’ Psaki conveniently ignored calling it a “crisis” and amended her wording to “challenges on the border.”
Of course, the Democrats’ media cohorts laughingly ignored her speaking the quiet part out loud.
