Biden's New Plan To Deal With Migrant Children Is Desperate And Dangerous
The Biden border crisis may not be an accident, as Newt Gingrich pointed out Monday, but the politician certainly didn't have a clear plan. That's made more clear by his ridiculous offer to federal employees. In a desperate attempt to make the 'migrant children overcrowding problem' go away, Biden offered thousands of federal employees 4 months of paid vacation if they volunteer to take one in.
The administration reportedly sent this request out in an email requesting help with the Unaccompanied Alien Children, or UACs, according to The New York Times.
“The desperate plea landed this week in the email inboxes of employees in government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and NASA: Will you consider taking a four-month paid leave from your job to help care for migrant children in government-run shelters packed with new arrivals at the border?” the Times reported.
“The request to much of the federal workforce came from the Department of Health and Human Services, which is at the heart of a frantic effort by the Biden administration to keep up with a surge in young people crossing the southwestern border hoping to reunite with relatives already in the United States,” the paper wrote.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbot blew the whistle this weekend on a facility in San Antonio for sexual abuse and neglect allegations. Abbott demanded the facility closed but the White house ignore his request.
“This facility is a health and safety nightmare,” Abbott said. “The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. To end this abuse, the Biden administration must immediately shut down this facility.”
But White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the White House has no plans to shut down the facility.
“Well, first we take safety and the well-being of children in our care very seriously, hence our earlier conversation about the funding spent to keep them safe during the pandemic,” Psaki said. “His claims will be looked into and investigated by the Department of Health and Human Services.”
She added: “Currently we have no basis for his call to shut down the San Antonio Freeman Coliseum as an intake site but we will of course — we take these allegations seriously and they will be investigated.”
So far, an investigation has yet to be announced but it looks like Biden is going to double down on the danger and place these children in the hands of employees without vetting them. Some, who undoubtedly take the children just for the paid time off but others...
This isn't just unprofessional, it's insane.
