After Project Veritas obtained photos inside the jam-packed border detention facilities for unaccompanied minors (or as that was called under Trump when they were much less crowded, “kids in cages”), the Biden White House finally released some photos to the media, which had been blocked from seeing the crisis for themselves. They were assured it wasn’t a crisis, it was a “challenge,” and then a “circumstance.”
But the Epoch Times got an exclusive interview with an anonymous border agent who described what it’s like inside, and “crisis” is putting it mildly.
Sample quotes: “Any diseases that are in there, it’s being kept in there, like a petri dish. The smell is overwhelming.”
“We’re getting them out of here as quickly as possible, but we are so overwhelmed right now. It used to be easy to get them out in 72 hours. Not anymore. They’re staying here for 10, 12 days. It’s horrible.”
“Everybody that shows up here—even if it’s a 3-year-old kid with no one around—they all have an address on them. And they’ll give it to you: ‘Here’s my address; this is where you are sending me. And that’s what we do. This is the way we are being played.”
“We’re dealing with a different culture who’s not afraid to send all their kids under the age of five, knowing they’re going to get raped, knowing they’re going to get killed. You talk to the adults or the teenagers and they’ll tell you, ‘They raped three or four girls, and they kicked them off the trains.’ They’re going to die.”
“There’s no end in sight. The people that we’re apprehending are warning us of the larger caravans that are on their way.”
And whose fault is all this? He said it’s due to Biden’s reversal of Trump’s policies, “One hundred and ten percent. They were already ready before Biden was even in office. They knew that the doors were going to be open. And now we’ve got a point where we cannot stop it.”
Needless to say, read the whole article. But be prepared to get very angry. And if you slammed Trump over that “kids in cages” narrative, but you don’t get furious over this, then please don’t lie to me that the lives of children are more important to you than politics.
