Biden admin releases photos, videos of migrant detention facilities

The Biden administration released official images and videos Tuesday from inside two crowded Texas detention centers at the southern border, ABC News has reported.

The Biden administration has yet to call the recent surge in unaccompanied minors at the border a “crisis.”

The images were shot last week by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials and expose living conditions inside of a processing facility in El Paso, Texas and a holding facility in Donna, Texas. The Biden administration has refused to allow the media inside of the facilities.

The 3-minute video shows where unaccompanied children and migrants are being held before they are transferred to other federal agencies. Up to 4,000 people, many of them children, sleep on floors with aluminum blankets inside the tented facility on the southern border. Only 250 people are meant to be held in the facilities.

ABC News Chief White House Corespondent Cecilia Vega described the facilities as “severely overcrowded, jail-like places, not meant for kids.”

A photo taken inside of the facility in Donna shows young children inside of a playpen, being watched over by a caretaker.

Another video shows children packed into enclosures and sleeping on mats on floors.

The White House has said they are working as quickly as possible to move the children into shelters and homes. And they have expressed concern over the spread of COVID-19.

Vega said most of the children are being held in the facilities much longer than the three days they’re legally allowed to be held. From the facilities, the children will most likely go into a foster system or another shelter, but it could take more than a month to reunite the children with their families.

5,000 unaccompanied children are in Border Patrol custody, and an additional 10,500 are in the care of Health and Human Services, according to an HHS official and a document obtained by ABC News.

More than 99 percent of migrants in Biden’s ‘Dedicated Dockets’ program have invalid asylum claims

Mainstream media has not covered President Biden’s “Dedicated Dockets” program which was implemented in May of 2021 as a “fast-track” asylum process. The program promises to get illegal immigrants through federal immigration court in under 300 days.

Breitbart reports that the very enticing promise has led to “more than 99 percent of illegal aliens enlisted” in the program in Los Angeles, California, “to have invalid claims for asylum and are subsequently ordered deported, new data reveals.”

Data comes from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Center for Immigration Law and Policy which reveals that in the city’s Dedicated Dockets program, just one percent of border crossers are found to have valid claims for asylum.

Additionally, more than 72 percent of illegal aliens ordered deported failed to show up for their asylum hearings. “The bombshell data comes as the Biden administration has deployed an expansive Catch and Release network where more than 954,000 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into the U.S. interior from February 2021 to April 2022″ adds Breitbart.

When released, they are done so on the promise that they will check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and show up to their asylum hearings. the UCLA data suggests very few show up to their hearings.

“Although more than 1.2 million illegal aliens have been ordered deported from the U.S. by a federal immigration judge, former Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan told Breitbart News that the Biden administration is deporting just one illegal alien for every 100 illegal aliens successfully crossing the southern border.”

“The most historic illegal alien crossings we’ve ever seen in the history of this nation … in that same year, ICE had the lowest number of removals in the history of the agency,” Homan said.
