Yesterday Kamala Harris rebuked the effort of Joe Biden to put her in charge of the collapsing border crisis he created. Harris said through her spokesperson Symone Sanders: ““I will just reiterate that the VP is not doing the border. The president asked the vice president to take on the diplomatic efforts with Mexico and countries of the North Triangle to address the root causes of migration.”” Apparently, even Kamala Harris isn’t stupid enough to take responsibility for a problem that is getting worse.
Today in McAllen, Texas, the Biden team were flying illegal aliens to other locations in order to reduce the overcrowding. According to OAN journalist Jenn Peligrino: “Approx 40% of the airport traffic this morning at Texas’ McAllen International appear to be migrants headed within the US. They are carrying boarding passes & paperwork that indicates they do not speak English.”
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The federal government announced last week that the Biden administration would use the San Diego Convention Center to house migrant minors from across the U.S.-Mexico border. Buses of children are expected to arrive in San Diego starting today. (link)
Meanwhile on the receiving end, the Biden administration has removed the regulation requiring background checks for those who take custody of unaccompanied minor children as DHS starts allowing emergency contractors to step-in and take over.
HOUSTON (AP) — The Biden administration is not requiring FBI fingerprint background checks of caregivers at its rapidly expanding network of emergency sites to hold thousands of immigrant teenagers, alarming child welfare experts who say the waiver compromises safety.
In the rush to get children out of overcrowded and often unsuitable Border Patrol sites, President Joe Biden’s team is turning to a measure used by previous administrations: tent camps, convention centers and other huge facilities operated by private contractors and funded by U.S. Health and Human Services. In March alone, the Biden administration announced it will open eight new emergency sites across the Southwest adding 15,000 new beds, more than doubling the size of its existing system.
These emergency sites don’t have to be licensed by state authorities or provide the same services as permanent HHS facilities. They also cost far more, an estimated $775 per child per day.
And to staff the sites quickly, the Biden administration has waived vetting procedures intended to protect minors from potential harm.
[…] Laura Nodolf, the district attorney in Midland, Texas, where HHS opened an emergency site this month, said that without fingerprint checks, “we truly do not know who the individual is who is providing direct care.”
“That’s placing the children under care of HHS in the path, potentially, of a sex offender,” Nodolf said. “They are putting these children in a position of becoming potential victims.” (read more)
But it’s all about the children, right?
