Not only are kids being held in cages at Biden’s border facilities, but they are packed together in inhumane, unlivable sleeping quarters with restricted access to hygiene and medical services.
While it would be a travesty for this to happen under any administration, we must keep in mind that South American migrants have been warned for years to not come to the U.S. border because they will not simply be allowed to cross.
Yet thousands of them are arriving at the border on a daily basis under the premise of what they think is a promise by the Biden Administration to open the Southern border.
Unfortunately for them, many of those migrants were wrong…and our border facilities are out of space.
The following details are newsworthy mostly because of the hypocrisy of the Leftists, who spent four years viciously alleging Trump’s border policies were racist, evil, and inhumane, among many other insult in their playbook.
Now that Biden’s in power, suddenly the Obama-era cages are acceptable. The most shocking turn of events yet is how quickly the living conditions of those facilities have deteriorated beyond belief—yet Democrat politicians are nowhere to be found.
Project Veritas, an investigative journalism outlet, has taken matters into their own hands to expose what the Democrats refuse to be transparent about.
In their latest bombshell, Project Veritas released a video Monday showing shocking images of child migrants sleeping almost on top of each other, wrapped in foil-like space blankets, in a 185,000 square foot facility in Donna, Texas. The outlet’s founder, James O’Keefe, said these photos were taken by an insider within the last few days.
O’Keefe said the insider revealed an average of 3,000 people are in custody at detention centers on a daily basis at any given time. They are separated into eight pods with eight cells in each facility.
Each pod at the Donna facility is currently holding 600 unaccompanied juvenile males ages 7 to 17 where they are separated by age and physical size.
According to the insider, there have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults, and medical emergencies, in addition to dozens of COVID cases.

Note that aside from the inhumane living conditions of the detention facilities is the fact that the facility’s security refused to allow media inside to investigate.
Even when O’Keefe said upfront that he was with the press, security said they still could not enter as it is “private property.” To somewhat get around this restriction, he flew a plane above the area to get aerial footage.
The expose comes after DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly put an unofficial “gag order” on media access to the border facilities—a claim which Mayorkas denies. Border patrol agents have expressed reluctance to share information about the condition of the inside based on internal pressure from higher ups.
So much for “transparency” under the Biden administration, a principle to which they said they would stick after accusing Trump of being a dictator who hated the media and hid the truth. It turns out that a Democrat-controlled administration is the one hiding from the media by refusing to let Biden to hold solo press conferences, take questions from reporters, and refusing to allow media to see the truth about migrant facilities under their watch.
