Since “Border Cages” Sounds Bad, Biden Admin To Open “Overflow Facility For Unaccompanied Migrant Children”
OPINION | This article contains political comments that reflect the author’s opinion.
The Biden administration is preparing the opening of an “overflow facility for unaccompanied migrant children”.
That’s literally just a fancier way of saying they are preparing and reopening the cages Obama built to take in illegal immigrants.

Really grateful that Biden turned around
“Border detention center for children.”

Do you know what’s particularly funny? Literally yesterday, Biden sat behind the Resolute Desk and told the nation:
“We will work to undo the moral and national shame of the previous government, which literally, and not figuratively, ripped children from the arms of their families.”
Do you remind me who built these cages to house the children who were “torn” from their families’ arms?

Yes, the cages were built by Obama while Joe Biden was the vice president. But it is possible that he doesn’t remember it.
The word finding in the Biden administration is really amazing. How much do you think they paid someone to find a way to “cage illegal children back” to sound socially acceptable? Especially after the considerable time spent condemning the Trump administration for separating children from illegal immigrant adults who claimed to be their family despite evidence to the contrary.
And I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when the Biden administration briefed the press on how to phrase the new narrative about the reopening of the cages.
