As Twitchy reported, former President Trump slammed the Biden administration during his address at CPAC for basically inviting caravans of migrants to the southern border. The Biden administration fired back by sending out DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to assure the press that there’s no crisis at the border.
In addition, Mayorkas said that the Biden administration wouldn’t be apprehending, say, a 9-year-old whose loving parents had sent their child alone across Mexico from Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador.
Just a stunning message from DHS Secretary to all the smugglers and traffickers:
"We are not expelling young children. We are not apprehending a 9-year-old child who's come alone, who's traversed Mexico, who's parents, who’s loving parents, had sent that child alone."

If they’re not apprehending unaccompanied 9-year-olds, then why did the administration just reopen those migrant overflow facilities for minors?
Here’s the complete question and answer for context. We would like to point out that plenty of people objected loudly to the Trump administration finding “sponsors” (such as foster homes) to take care of unaccompanied children, arguing that that was just a ploy to keep them separated from their parents.
IMMIGRATION: Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas: "We are not apprehending a 9-year old… whose loving parents had sent that child alone — we're not expelling that 9-year-old child to Mexico when that child's country of origin was Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador." pic.twitter.com/qlfbfbDQUY

“Whose loving parents sent that child alone…” –@SecMayorkas … Hmm. I dunno if “loving parents” should send kids alone to the border with cartel smugglers

Loving parents do NOT send their minor kids alone ANYWHERE

Sure, loving parents always abandon their kids.

Show of hands…..would YOU send your child?

What kind of drugs is this dude on? "Loving parents" don't scoot their kid out the door with $20 pinned to his shirt and tell him to hike 3000 mile to the US! I wouldn't let my kids out of my sight at the ages of these kids.

So they’re processing the kids as quickly as possible to get them to HHS, while they wait in those cage-like converted shipping containers and maybe a polluted Superfund site?
‘REALLY??’ Not everybody agrees with DHS secretary’s claim that there is not a crisis at the border https://t.co/Q9w4plwUDY
