It’s OK When They Do It: Democrats Putting Kids In ‘Cages’ Again

AOC says ‘it’s not OK’, but doesn’t fly to the border to scream through a chain link fence this time

Democrats have been blasted as hypocritical for reinstating the notorious ‘kids in cages’ detention policies at the border that they previously used to attack President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned Tuesday by Peter Doocy, who asked why Biden administration was reopening one of the very facilities Democrats previously labelled a ‘human rights abuse’.

Psaki argued that “This is not kids being kept in cages,” and claimed “this is a facility that was reopened that is going to follow the same standards as other [Department of Health and Human Services] facilities.”

Psaki continued “That’s never our intention – of replicating immigration policies of the past administration. But we are in a circumstance where we are not going to expel unaccompanied minors at the border.”

Psaki also argued that because “there is a pandemic going on,” the holding facilities must be used, rather than the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

In other words, ‘its OK when we do it’.

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on the development, but only mildly criticised Biden for the exact same thing she previously labelled “concentration camps” and created a staged ‘crying’ photo op over during Trump’s presidency.

As we have previously exposed, the ‘cages’ at the border were instituted by the Obama administration, and have been repeatedly mis-used by Democrats and their supporters to attack Trump, who actually signed an executive order to end the policy of separating kids at the border.

Video: Psaki Says It Doesn’t Matter That Border Patrol Didn’t Really ‘Whip’ Migrants, Actions Are Still Unacceptable

“Our reaction to the photos has not changed.”

After even CNN admitted the insinuation that Border Patrol agents ‘whipped’ migrants on the southern border last week was “patently false,” and that pictures of the incident were grossly taken out of context, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said it doesn’t matter.

A reporter asked Psaki “The El Paso Times has walked back their claim that border agents were using whips to deter Haitian migrants. This is kind of a controversy; some people are weighing what is a whip versus what is a rein. And the El Paso Times put out a clarification saying, ‘It was not an actual whip.’ Does that change anything for the administration, in light of the statements that were made last week?”

Psaki responded, “I don’t think anyone could look at those photos and think that was appropriate action or behavior or something that should be accepted within our administration. There’s an investigation. That’s ongoing. We’ll let that play out. But our reaction to the photos has not changed.”

Watch:

So the fact that Border Patrol agents were doing their job, rounding up illegal immigrants who were trying to run away, and not whipping them indiscriminately, as was initially suggested, won’t have any bearing on the ‘investigation’?

Biden has already said that the agents will “pay,” so an impartial investigation is apparently off the cards.

Subsequent footage and images prove that no whips were used and the agents were also not using their horse reins to attack any migrants:

Even the photographer who took the images chimed in and stated that no ‘whipping’ took place.

“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Paul Ratje said, adding “I’ve never seen them whip anyone… He was swinging it, but it can be misconstrued when you’re looking at the picture.”

No matter, off to prison with them, while thousands of undocumented migrants are simply let go inside America, never to be seen again.

    Video: Psaki Says Biden Ignores Reporters Because They Ask Things He Doesn’t Want To Talk About

    “Some of the questions are not always about the topic he’s talking about”

    The saga concerning Joe Biden ignoring reporters and the press being shooed away from him at every opportunity by handlers continued Monday as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that Biden doesn’t answer questions because they concern things he doesn’t want to talk about.

    A reporter asked Psaki why Biden advised the Indian Prime Minister not to address the press last week during another Oval office sit down.

    “The Indian press is much better behaved than the American press…I think, with your permission, you could not answer questions because they won’t ask any questions on point,” Biden told the Indian premier.

    When asked what the hell that was all about, Psaki answered “I think what he said is that they’re (the reporters’ questions) not always on point.”

    “Now I know that isn’t something that anyone wants to hear in here, but what I think he was conveying is today he might want to talk about COVID vaccines, some of the questions were about that,” she continued.

    Psaki added, “Some of the questions are not always about the topic he’s talking about in that day. I don’t think it was meant to be a hard cut at the members of the media, people he’s taken questions from today and on Friday as well.”

    A second reporter noted how embarrassing it was for the President to shame the US press in front of another world leader.

    “Is the president reticent to take questions when he’s sitting next to a foreign leader in the Oval Office?” the reporter asked, adding “Can we expect him to do that in the future?”

    Psaki answered, “He’d already taken questions that day,” she said. “I think that was the context of his comments.”

    Another reporter also later noted that the Indian press is “ranked 142nd in the world, according to Reporters Without Borders, for press freedoms,” despite Biden suggesting that it is more “well behaved” than the US press.

    Watch:

    If reporters only ever asked questions about what Biden wants to talk about, every press conference would be about ice cream and things he did 25 years ago that never really happened.

    Psaki also snapped at a reporter who asked about Biden’s plummeting poll numbers:

    Video: Even CNN Calls Out “Patently False” Border Patrol ‘Whipping’

    “Can the Border Patrol count on you and President Biden, who has said that people will pay, to come to a determination based on the facts and not based on Twitter outrage?”

    After a week of the Biden administration and Democrats pushing fake news that border patrol agents whipped migrants, and even removing them from duty, even CNN’s Jake Tapper described the story as “patently false” during an interview with DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas.

    “Some of the initial descriptions of those images were just patently false,” Tapper said, adding “There’s now video out there that provides more context.”

    Tapper gave Mayorkas an opportunity to set the record straight, asking “Having seen the video are you certain that there was actually wrongdoing?”

    But the DHS chief refused to admit the descriptions of the mounted agents were wrong, prompting Tapper to further note that if Biden is already saying that the agents are going to have to “pay,” how can the investigation be independent?

    “Can the Border Patrol count on you and President Biden, who has said that people will pay, to come to a determination based on the facts and not based on Twitter outrage?” Tapper asked.

    Watch:

    In a further interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Mayorkas declared that the flood of illegal migrants at the border, and the subsequent release of thousands of them into the U.S. is “one of our proudest traditions.”

    Wallace then asked why the Biden administration hasn’t erected a “wall or a fence” in response to the crisis.

    Mayorkas responded “It is the policy of this administration: we do not agree with the building of the wall.”

    When asked exactly how many migrants have come into the U.S. from the latest wave, Mayorkas said “I think it’s about ten thousand or so, twelve thousand,” adding “It could be even higher. The number that are returned could be even higher. What we do is we follow the law as Congress has passed it.”

    Wallace also noted that almost half of the migrants are never seen again, failing to appear at asylum court hearings.

    “There are more than 11 million people in this country illegally. Clearly, despite your best efforts, millions of people end up in this country and don’t – just disappear,” Wallace noted.

    Watch:

    In related news, Axios issued an update addressing the fake ‘whipping’ news, deleting a tweet that stirred up and spread the disinformation.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbot also vowed to hire any border agents who are punished by the Biden administration for their actions in protecting the border.
