CDC allows migrant children ‘cages’ to fill to 100% as border crisis intensifies

The Centers for Disease Control is relaxing COVID-19 restrictions on facilities that house unaccompanied child migrants crossing into the United States through the roughly 2,000 mile border with Mexico. Why? Because the Biden administration is being overwhelmed by the tidal wave of illegal alien migration since over turning former President Trump’s strict border policies. The move to fill the facilities to 100% capacity is an effort to house the droves of children arriving to the U.S.

A memo obtained by Axios found the agency warning “facilities should plan for and expect to have COVID-19 cases.”

The CDC is sidelining health restrictions as a crisis at the southern border intensifies.

Some migrant children told Sara Carter stories of jumping onto trains to get to the border and horror stories of other children falling of trains or disappearing along the four month journey from Honduras.

Sara Carter spoke live from the border Friday night on Hannity, reporting that children are flooding into the country daily and that border agents are “overwhelmed.”

“There are roughly 700 to 1,000 undocumented migrants, some of them unaccompanied minors, pouring into Texas daily, ” Carter said live from McAllen, Tex. “There is a crisis on the southern border as well, with the drug cartels battling it out, as well as human traffickers.”

Carter confirmed children are entering the country alone, some as young as four-years-old.

Some migrant children told Carter stories of jumping onto trains to get to the border and horror stories of other children falling of trains or disappearing along the four month journey from Honduras.

Carter found that migrants misunderstood Biden’s stop on deportations for 100 days “as an invitation to arrive to the United States.”

Children appeared in Texas without parents, or with adults who were strangers and potentially paid by parents who are back in Honduras.

“The crisis couldn’t be any worse,” Carter said. “More and more undocumented children are coming across the border. There’s a big concern here as well with the spread of COVID and that the majority of people coming through here are not being tested.”

This lack of testing and the new policy change to allow facilities to fill to 100% is the only option, Axios reports, according to the CDC memo.

It says the “only available options” for minors coming across the border without parents is “prolonged stays at [Customs & Border Protection] facilities operating significantly above COVID-19 capacities,” Axios reports.

The memo says the Customs and Border Patrol does not have the ability to follow pandemic guidelines.

“At this time, CBP does not have adequate space for physical distancing, quarantine of persons exposed to COVID-19 or isolation of ill or infected persons,” the memo reads.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas Says We Cannot Remove ‘11 Million Undocumented Individuals’ Unlawfully in U.S.

Troubling details were unearthed during the questioning of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas by the Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Grassley asked Mayorkas about a DHS memo from September 30 which reads: “The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen will not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them.”

“Does that reasoning apply to the [1.2] million illegal immigrants who have received due process and been given a final order of removal by an immigration judge?” Grassley asked Mayorkas.

“We cannot remove 1.2 million individuals, nor can we remove more than 11 million undocumented individuals, individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States, who might not have final orders of removal” Mayorkas answered.

Mayorkas also stated that he had issued the due process policy after drawing on “tremendous experience not only as a member of the Department of Homeland Security but as a federal prosecutor.”

Grassley pressed Mayorkas, asking, “should any of them be removed?”

“Of course,” Mayorkas said. “I do believe that individuals who pose a public safety threat, who pose a national security threat, who pose a border security threat, should be removed, and we should be smart and effective in our use of resources, and we should focus on the well-being of our communities and prioritize individuals for removal.”

In his opening statements, Grassley addressed Mayorkas and stated, “When you allow the ACLU and open-borders immigration activists rather than career law enforcement professionals to dictate the terms of your immigration and border policies, then you shouldn’t be surprised when record-shattering numbers of people start showing up at the border to take advantage of that.”

Grassley continued, “When you run DHS like it’s an ‘Abolish ICE’ fan club, you shouldn’t be surprised when you have an illegal immigration crisis on your hands.”
