President Joe Biden and his administration are quickly facing one of the most dangerous and out-of-control immigration crises in American history.
And the new president has nobody else to blame but himself, given that he spent his first days in the White House erasing virtually every executive order signed by former President Donald Trump that prevented this kind of insane crisis from happening.
The rapid and massive uptick in unaccompanied illegal immigrant minors pouring across the border is setting off red flags everywhere in government, as they’re now finally coming to the realization that mistakes have already been made. Add in a COVID-19 pandemic and the situation becomes that much worse, as many of those who cross the border illegally are being found to test positive for the virus.
The latest report indicates that the Biden administration is rapidly losing control of the situation and are now considering using a large military base in Virginia, Ft. Lee being one of the considerations, as a temporary holding facility.
Reuters has the story:
The U.S. government is evaluating a Virginia military base as a possible site to house unaccompanied migrant children amid a sharp rise in migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notice seen by Reuters.
A Pentagon spokesman confirmed that Fort Lee, a U.S. Army facility in Virginia, was under consideration.
The number of migrant children arriving at the southwest border has increased in recent months, putting pressure on HHS-run shelters that house the children before they are released to parents or other sponsors in the United States.
In the notice, HHS said it urgently needs to find more shelter space for unaccompanied minors. The department said it must “aggressively” find solutions for the rising number of children entering the country amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Something tells me that the good folks of Virginia will not be happy about this situation if Biden starts transporting thousands of illegal immigrants to their state.
Can you even imagine for a second if Trump would have suggested something like this? Democrats would have been up in arms, to say the least.
Event the Biden-friendly mainstream media has picked up on the growing crisis, even publishing reports that aren’t exactly flattering, which means Biden and his administration are going to take a massive hit for letting this happen so quickly.
The scary part is that this is literally just the beginning. Only God knows what’s in store for Virginia and the rest of the country in the coming months and years.
