According to a Washington Post report, President Biden has eclipsed former President Trump when it comes to one particular area:
At border, record number of migrant youths wait in adult detention cells for longer than legally allowed https://t.co/VyZw8zNlmz

Nearly 3,500 unaccompanied teens and children are stuck at Border Patrol stations waiting for shelter beds to open. The largest number of minors held this way during the Trump administration was about 2,600 in June 2019, @NickMiroff reports. https://t.co/CEXoQHT9Nq

First off, here’s a “fixed it for you” version if we had consistent media:
Headline: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION HOLDING 30% MORE UNACCOMPANIED CHILDREN IN CAGES THAN TRUMP EVER DID https://t.co/1uqg6pAufU

As if that would ever be the media spin!
Is this a cage? This LOOKS like a cage. Bet you would call it a cage if Trump was pres.

Cages. The word you're looking for is "cages".

That word was reserved only for the Trump administration. For the moment the *correct* terminology is apparently “Border Patrol stations.”
At least the tweets are nice.

Narrator: As it turns out, we don’t do this anymore.
So the kids are waiting in cages until a spot in the concentration camp opens up, got it.

Isn’t that special?
Are we protesting mattress companies that sell beds to these concentration camps? https://t.co/0f5BzszU06

For some reason that hasn’t yet become a problem for the Democrats.
