BIDEN MAKES FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT BORDER CRISIS: ‘WE’RE NOT’ HOLDING CHILDREN ‘IN CELLS,’ SEPARATING FROM PARENTS. Reproduced from Tracking all of Joe Biden’s false or misleading claims – updated on May 14 – Geller Report News
President Joe Biden made numerous false claims during excerpts of an ABC News interview that aired last Tuesday evening about the border crisis that he created.During the interview, host George Stephanopoulos pressed Biden about the crisis, which Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas confirmed this week is projected to hit the highest level ever recorded by DHS.When asked about the thousands of unaccompanied minors who are flooding the southern border, Biden responded, “Do you repeat what Trump did, take them from their mothers, move them away, but hold them in cells, etc.? We’re not doing that.”
That is a false claim. Biden is lying.
The New York Times reported that thousands of unaccompanied minors are being kept in “facilities akin to jails as the Biden administration struggles to find room for them in shelters.”
The Times reported this week that “children are being forced to sleep on gym mats with foil sheets and go for days without showering” and that “many children” had “not been allowed outdoors for days on end.”
USA Today reported during the first week in March that “the Biden administration is still sheltering children separated from close family members in federal facilities for weeks on end.”
