CNN reports that reduced capacities at other facilities due to COVID-19 and “an increase in apprehensions” has led the Biden administration to reopen an overflow facility in Texas for unaccompanied migrant children apprehended at the border. So … we’re still apprehending children at the border and putting them into “overflow facilities” left over from either the Biden or Trump administrations? Speaking of the Trump administration, we were assured he was apprehending families and breaking them up, throwing the kids in cages.
NEW: The Biden admin is reopening an overflow facility in Texas for unaccompanied migrant children apprehended at the US-Mexico border. It comes amid an increase in apprehensions + reduced capacity limits at other facilities due to Covid-19. https://t.co/MYRvIr9gm6

Would these overflow facilities have a cage-like feel at all? https://t.co/HvyToPQPPp

No, they are free-range detention centers.

Safely spaced, sure, clean cage-like cages.

We are presented with charming silhouettes against the open sky in the tweet. Where are the photographs of the facilities?

We're calling them overflow reservoirs now

We noted CNN didn’t call it a detention facility.
You got to hand it to the left. They are always redefining things and making up terms to make it sound good.

Those are now called play pens

They may look similar to cages we’ve seen in the past, but they’ll be nothing like that.

The press doesn't use the word "cages" anymore now that a leftist is president. They call it "Apprehended" and will make it sound all wonderful and fuzzy like rainbow-colored unicorn poop.

Don’t be ridiculous. They are going to have chain-link walls and ceilings with a small gate. It’s a freedom facility, not a cage

Like an amusement park, if an amusement park was a migrant detention center for kids

Poor dreamers are being separated and caged in overflow facilities. Where is the humanity.
— Edward M Dunne (@dunne_ed) February 2, 2021
So like a facility with cage-like dividers?
— T_C_A (@TanyaCAlvarez) February 2, 2021
So more kids in cages. Cool.

*reopening an Obama-era Welcome Center

You misspelled KIDS IN CAGES
— christine (@Grimes_Gurl) February 2, 2021
Will @CNN report that they have to drink from a toilet?
— Willy Nilly ?? (@WilleeNillee) February 2, 2021
Does this facility possibly contain an internal fence-like structure?
— John Harris (@E_C_Tombs) February 2, 2021
Hopefully Biden saved the cages that Obama used.
— No Trouble Tom (@NotroubleTom) February 2, 2021
No but it’s different because it’s Biden, so kids are going in cages but actually it’s quite nice for them this time, unlike before, when it was really bad

Surely you meant to say "concentration camps", Priscilla. https://t.co/sl6Ftw8WBs

Nazi concentration camps.

AOC then: ""This car park is a concentration camp", AOC now: "I see no cages"
— masksbehindmasks (@masksbehindmas1) February 2, 2021
Any photos of this facility or were there too many cages?
— From the Land of Sky Blue Waters ?? (@HammsLager) February 2, 2021
Where’s the Photoshopped TIME cover of Biden looking down at a crying migrant toddler and not caring?
‘So that makes Obama a Nazi, right’? EPIC thread just shreds Biden’s LIE about Obama never separating children from parents at the border https://t.co/eisLffbElq
