Biden Draws Backlash for Latest Immigration Development

Biden Draws Backlash for Latest Immigration Development

(TargetLiberty.org) – The Biden administration is under fire from the Left – and, ironically, it’s about things Biden and Harris were attacking the Trump administration for just a few months ago. It seems the new team in the White House is learning the hard way that illegal immigration is a problem you can’t solve with a few “Progressive” soundbites.

On the campaign trail, Biden said detention facilities for illegal immigrant minors should be closed down, insisting “We don’t need them.” On Monday, The Washington Post announced two facilities are being reopened to cope with record numbers of unaccompanied minors crossing the US border.

Predictably, the far left reacted with outrage. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that the move was “not okay, never has been okay,” while others such as Representative Ilhan Omar also criticized the decision. Press secretary Jen Psaki said that this is a temporary measure designed help deal with the pandemic, claiming that it isn’t a replication of the Trump administration’s immigration policy – but that’s hard to defend, when the same people are being held in the same facilities.
