The Biden administration has been forced to intervene as a growing number of sex crimes were reported at a migrant facility in Texas.
A report of sexual abuse came only a day after Republican Governor of Texas Greg Abbot demanded feds to close the migrant shelter at the Freeman Coliseum. Biden’s border officials are housing more than 2,000 unaccompanied minor boys who recently crossed the U.S.-Mexico border.
Abbott’s demand for the closure came as reports of sexual abuse mounted. The Texas governor called the facility a “health and safety nightmare,” adding, “the Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children.”
Illegal border crossings have skyrocketed since Biden assumed office. In March alone, more than 171,000 migrants attempted to cross the border illegally. The surge began as Biden assumed office and subsequently reversed, or all-out ended, many of Trump’s immigration policies that prevented such chaos. The rise in border apprehensions have now surpassed a 15-year record.
Customs and Border Protection is now in custody of more than 19,000 unaccompanied minors as of April 1st – a 99% rise from February.
Nine new migrant shelters have opened since Biden took office, including at convention centers in San Diego and Dallas, and many throughout Texas. At a facility in Donna, Texas, migrant children are sleeping shoulder-to-shoulder in harrowing, inhumane conditions.
