It’s been only three months since Joe Biden became President and reversed all of President Trump’s measures to secure the border. And while the White House is trying to deny that he’s created a crisis (which even he slipped up and admitted), that’s become far too soft a word.
Biden and other Democrats keep demanding “accountability” from everyone but themselves, while they accept no accountability for what has become a security and humanitarian disaster, one that’s not only causing great harm to the migrant children they claim to care so much about, but now to American children.
For instance, with border agents being pulled away from security duties to assist with processing and transporting so many illegal entrants, the number of “getaways” is sharply up, with 15,000 since January. These are usually solo adult males who flee capture rather than surrendering, because they’re most likely to be returned. Because of them, the number of high-speed police car chases is also up, in border towns where children, pedestrians and other drivers are in their paths.
Meanwhile, in one of the most outrageous stories yet, the California foster care program is contacting foster parents to ask if they will take in between one and 26 unaccompanied migrant children between ages 12 and 17. Before you think, “Awwww, what a sweet thing to do,” consider this:
There’s already a shortage of available foster parents for American children in terrible circumstances, such as being stuck in homes with domestic violence or drug abuse. In Los Angeles County alone, there are 30,000 American children waiting for placement in foster care. And because of the idiotic policies of the Biden Administration, those children are now told to wait even longer while their places in foster care are taken by illegal immigrants. How many of them will be abused, or God forbid, die, for lack of safe foster care?
Some foster parents are furious over this. They point out that many of these migrant children were brought here by criminal organizations engaged in human trafficking, something they are trying to fight by acting as foster parents. One told the Epoch Times, "We were outraged. They’re literally going to use the foster system to facilitate human trafficking.”
If, as Democrats claimed, President Trump was personally responsible for “children in cages” and for every death from a virus unleashed on the world by China, then how can they possibly deny that Joe Biden is personally responsible for every American child stranded in dangerous conditions – and every migrant child stuck in a dangerous, overcrowded border facility – because of a crisis he directly created with his mindless “Reverse everything Trump did” policies?
Those California foster parents are right to be outraged. Everyone should be. Memo to the news media: Why aren’t you demanding accountability for this?
