Whe Trump was president, Democrats freaked out daily about kids in cages. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even called the facilities ‘concentration camps’ and did a photo shoot crying outside the fence of a facility.
Remember this picture?
A south Texas migrant facility is now at 729% of its legal capacity, according to the Daily Mail.

Now it looks like things are getting much worse under Biden.
The Associated Press reports:
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 because there aren’t enough mats, according to nonprofit lawyers who conduct oversight of immigrant detention centers.
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, the lawyers said. Some have to wait five days or more to shower, and there isn’t always soap available, just shampoo, according to the lawyers.
President Joe Biden’s administration denied the lawyers access to the tent facility. During the administration of former President Donald Trump, attorney visits to Border Patrol stations revealed severe problems, including dozens of children held at one rural station without adequate food, water, or soap.
Where are the Democrats? Where is the media? Where is AOC?
Could it be that they never really cared in the first place and were only using this as a wedge issue against Trump?
It sure looks that way.
