Biden illegally prevents lawyers from seeing facilities for child migrants. Children say they’re sleeping on floor. No soap. Separated from their parents. But Biden is a Democrat, so it’s all OK.

According to this article from Associated Press, liberals blamed Trump for photos from 2014 of migrant children in cages.

I don’t know who the next Republican president will be. But after she or he takes office, here’s something that liberals can blame on her or him, just as they blamed Obama’s cages on Trump.

This is from the Washington Post. You can read the entire article for free at the link. I’m posting what I consider to be the most important parts:

Children packed into Border Patrol tent for days on end

Hundreds of immigrant children and teenagers have been detained at a Border Patrol tent facility in packed conditions, with some sleeping on the floor

The lawyers interviewed more than a dozen children Thursday in Donna, Texas, where the Border Patrol is holding more than 1,000 people. Some of the youths told the lawyers they had been at the facility for a week or longer, despite the agency’s three-day limit for detaining children. Many said they haven’t been allowed to phone their parents or other relatives who may be wondering where they are.

Despite concerns about the coronavirus, the children are kept so closely together that they can touch the person next to them

Some have to wait five days or more to shower, and there isn’t always soap available

President Joe Biden’s administration denied the lawyers access to the tent facility.

“It is pretty surprising that the administration talks about the importance of transparency and then won’t let the attorneys for children set eyes on where they’re staying,” said Leecia Welch of the National Center for Youth Law, one of the lawyers. “I find that very disappointing.”

A 1997 court settlement known as the Flores agreement sets standards for government detention of immigrant children. Lawyers are entitled under Flores to conduct oversight of child detention. The Justice Department declined to comment Thursday on why the lawyers were denied access. The Biden administration has not responded to several requests from The Associated Press seeking access to the tent.

The Associated Press this week interviewed the mother of one 4-year-old girl from Guatemala who crossed the border March 5 with her aunt. Border authorities expelled the aunt and labeled the girl unaccompanied by a parent, placing her in the Donna tent.

The parents asked for their daughter to be released to them directly but on Monday she was sent from South Texas to foster care in Michigan.

Homeland Security and HHS initially said they could not directly release the child to her mother.
