We really haven’t heard much about the border lately, aside from the occasional observation that no one from the Biden-Harris administration seems to be in any hurry to visit the border. It wasn’t so long ago that we were running stories on migrant detainment facilities, formerly known as “cages,” being packed beyond capacity despite warnings from the CDC not to fill them beyond 50 percent so as not to spread the coronavirus.
We also haven’t seen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez put on her best whites and break down in tears at the “concentration camps” on the border.
The New York Times seems to have noticed, and in a rare act of journalism, is reporting that Democrats are “voicing worries privately” now that President Biden is in office.
Turns out Democrats who screamed about President Trump are still concerned about the treatment of migrant children. They're just 'voicing worries privately' now that a Democrat is in the White House. From NYT: https://t.co/xsAeT1G0rm pic.twitter.com/jgEr3FaGQN

“With the issue bedeviling President Biden, they are voicing worries privately.”
Don’t worry. After we find out more about the President’s peloton I’m sure it’ll be addressed.

The fact the the NYT could write that, seemingly oblivious to what it obviously proves, just shows the bubble these people thrive in.

Yeah, so the New York Times is trustworthy today I guess

Interesting how they justify this: The Democrat administration has good intentions where as the Republican administration did not. Therefore, we forgive their handling of the children. This is of course by definition almost a partisan justification, without objective merit.

No they’re not, they DGAF. This has been going on since the 90’s and they didn’t care until they could use it as something to bitch about Trump for. Truly mindless derangement.

I would really like to know what SHOULD be done with migrant children, according to the Democrats.

That explains too why the media have gone private

The hypocrisy is overwhelming

It's just a kinder, gentler form of outrage.
It might LOOK like placation… but it's not.

In other words, they're all full of shit.

The difference from before? Trump told the illegal aliens to stay away, and they came anyway. Biden told the illegal aliens to 'come on in', and caged the children when they arrived, and wrapped them up like baked potatoes for dinner.

Biden's policy allowing unaccompanied minors to cross the border is terrible. It's an open border for kids. He is incentivizing children to be trafficked. It's shameful that no one is calling him out on it.

Why does our president hate young people of color?
Is he, too, literally Hitler? 😥

Where are the thousands of illegal migrant children ? Who’s feeding, housing and caring for them?
— Barbra Harrison (@BarbraHarriso18) May 25, 2021
We’ve heard of them being housed with sponsors, in convention centers, in hotels, on buses, on military bases, in detention facilities … just put ’em wherever you can find room.
Hypocrisy, of the highest order.
— Redinblue (@Redinblue4) May 25, 2021
That's called hypocrisy.
No only from Democrats, but from the @nytimes as well.
Congratulations. We knew you were in bed with each other, and you continue to provide evidence confirming that notion.

“We care, but quietly” perhaps not as comforting as they think to suffering children.
— Kelli Kobor (@PublicDomainiac) May 25, 2021
Bullshit. If they were concerned, they wouldn’t have voted for Biden. If they were concerned, they’d be screaming about kids in cages. Democrats don’t care about anything but power. Period.
— ✨Shawn Quinn✨ (@ShawnQuinn83) May 25, 2021
Has it occurred to anyone that there are more kids in custody than are enrolled in some suburban school districts? And a lot of them have parents or other relatives living here illegally? I used to think estimates of 11 million were nuts, no more.

We’re frankly amazed that the New York Times even suggested that Democrats were “once-outraged,” implying they’re not anymore — which they aren’t.
