I've not nothing snarky to say about this. Good job, task force.

If you actually try, it can be done.

Thanks for doing this. It's the cruelest act of the last four years. Truly evil in action.

That's a damn good start. Thanks, Joe!

Not to snark because I agree, now if we could just find the 1,4XX ish missing kids and reunite them with their families too.

Why hasn't Biden solved this yet? Clearly he hates children. Just as bad as Republicans. Guess I'll just keep voting right since they don't fail to deliver on their promises to be awful.

Not unless you like it raw and/or enraged. First you kill it and cut it into cooking pot sized pieces.

They've all been sold off for the grift. If you raise them to be a maid from childhood you don't have to pay them.

That's snark, I recognize it by the pixels and seeing some snark in my days.

I too hope they are found and reunited. They were probably just shoved into some facility and not documented where.

Bith Set Me Up: Abolish ICE and prosecute everybody involved in the concentration camps.


Every day that the Democrats don't do this is a black mark on history, especially theirs. They are concentration camps. There is no justification for this. None.

Okay, someone needs to help with the maths here.

Dozens of migrant teens boarded vans Monday for the trip down a dusty road to a former man camp for oil field workers here, the first migrant child facility opened under the Biden administration.
The emergency facility - a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 - is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.


According to the article earlier this week, Biden is opening up a new detention facility to house up to 700 kids. If there are only 500 still out there, why the need for the new concentration camp?
 
2021-02-25 9:05:41 PM  
Make it a one-in-one-out policy. Every kid that gets reunited means another redhat Nazi bootlicker gets snatched up in the middle of the night with no 6th amendment protections.

This was the cruelest and most deplorable act of an already terrible presidency. Best case scenario is lifelong emotional problems for all of these kids. Worst case is a ready made crop of domestic terrorist recruits in 20 years.

I'm more inclined to believe they were trafficked
Remember everything they accused the democrats of they were doing

Trump is friends with six pedophiles - that we know of - the majority of whom are involved in international sex slave trafficking. Those poor, poor children weren't sold to their masters to be maids.

Because your dumb ass cannot differentiate between newly arrived unaccompanied minors amd already arrived minors that had been separated from their families.

Also because you where so quick to snark without actually reading any of the information involved part of the reason for opening the new centers is in order to allow more spacing for health and welfare and lessen crowding while we find whatever local relatives the newly arrived unaccompanied minors have.

So the 506 are just a subset leftover from the Trump era and don't represent the totality of the problem at all? Okay, that is what I wanted to understand. So while I'm glad a hundred kids are being reunited with their parents, we still have a huge problem brewing. No sucking our own dicks yet.

Agreed. This is merely the first step on correcting an issue that should have never have happened.

I am not excited about the new centers opening up but taking a minute to understand it is for unaccompanied minors and to allow a healthier (less crowding) and safer ( spreading out during a pandemic) environment makes it better, and knowing that they will continue to address all aspects of this ongoing problem is slightly reassuring.

Unaccompanied teenages and young adults were in fact, held by the previous Obama government, but only the  T-Rump administration snatched small children and enfants away from their parents or guardians and detained them in the same sort of dog-like enclosures as the more adult undocumented would-be workers

And they lost the identity of the parents that corresponded to over 500 small prisoners. About par for the T-Rump course on justice, effeciency, record-keeping, compassion, truth and child-care.

PUCK RUMP.

Reuniting families? That's not very Family Values oriented of him.

Biden needs to pivot to being presidential or he'll never get to be dictator for life.

Good.  Now deport all those who were "just following orders", as well as the folks giving those orders, to El Salvador.

Only then can the healing begin.

If those children and their families want it, citizenship should be theirs for the asking. They paid an insane price for a misdemeanor crime because it gave racists a thrill.

I agree with the crowd, nothing bad to say about this or Biden's handling of it. Good job Mr. President.

The Florence Project.
On any given day and the next and the next 7000 people are detained just in Arizona.
For the past 4 years the system eats these people and spits them back to gangs and political death.
Check out The Florence Project and support them financially if you can. If you can't that's cool, be an advocate for them on social media.

Some are those separated, and others are unaccompanied minors and other situations. There is another thread that links out to an article. Is the facility a good end state? No. But it is a start.

Part of the numbers you are seeing are from unfreezing the border. People who had been kept in Mexico are being processed. A lot of the new kids are being processed in and then on to family. Tfa mentioned 72 hour max hold. Oh, and they aren't just getting dumped. You know... Like Trump was doing (also part of the other thread)

It is a great start to an effort that makes me sad is even necessary, and hopefully Biden's administration can try to rectify the bullshiat that these people have gone through.

More immigration judges to help eliminate the back log of people in detention facilities, along with these new requirements, could go a long way to helping alleviate the stresses our immigration system is facing.
