One of the biggest arguments that we’ve heard from liberals over the last several decades is that we’re supposed to blindly follow liberal policies because “it’s for the children.”
What you don’t hear from the mainstream media is how often those same liberals have been busted for abusing children in truly terrible ways, and when they’re not abusing children, very often, liberals are neglecting children by blindly trusting that a government bureaucracy will take care of the children like they were hired to do.
Too often, though, the exact opposite happens. To make today’s story worse, the children being neglected are the very illegal immigrant children that Biden has been telling us that we should welcome with open arms. Well, I don’t see Biden opening the White House to keeping immigrant children in the spare bedrooms there, and his administration was just accused by two witnesses of neglecting those children in the facilities set up to care for them. Zachary Stieber writes,
Workers who helped care for children who crossed into the country illegally say they witnessed “gross mismanagement and specific endangerment to public health and safety” at a military base in Texas.
Laurie Elkin and Justin Mulaire were temporarily assigned in mid-May by the Department of Health and Human Services to help care for illegal immigrant youth at an emergency site on Fort Bliss, a military base outside of El Paso.
Thousands of unaccompanied children were once housed there in large tents amid a continuing surge of illegal immigration during the Biden era. The site started accepting children in late March. About 800 remained as of late June.
Elkin and Mulaire said in a whistleblower complaint lodged this week that they saw major issues but were discouraged from reporting what they witnessed, including being told to provide no feedback during their first 10 days of work.
The accusations include poor sanitation, overcrowding, lack of clean bedding and clothes, and “the use of staffers they felt were unsuitable for the job.” Truly it’s a mess.
But this is often the way that liberal policies turn out: start with good intentions (at least, we’re told the intentions are good), but the reality turns into a nightmare.
These poor children deserve better, and the American people deserve better than the circus that we have in Washington, D.C. now.
