The Surprising Truth About Living Conditions for Unaccompanied Alien Minors

We’ll certainly never get an accurate picture if we rely on the hysterical left for the facts.

Over the weekend, liberal Twitter absolutely melted down over a stunning image of two immigrant children sleeping on the floor of a chain-linked cell at a border facility after being detained by immigration agents. The picture quickly went viral, accompanied by emotional accusations of Trump’s horrific immigration policies for putting children in cages. 

When it was revealed that the picture was actually from 2014 and there was no possible way to blame Trump, conservative Twitter melted down over the conspicuous lack of one single liberal backtracking on their accusations and considering the perspective that immigrants were detained and deported under the Obama administration, too.

The Washington Times is now reporting that far from being held in cages, many unaccompanied alien children, or UAC, are living in dorms with full accommodations, treated to hearty meals, cable television, even trips to amusement parks–all on the taxpayer dime.

In contrast to the viral image of caged children from the weekend, they write, “Here is another image: illegal immigrant children set up in comfy dormitories, coloring with “multicultural crayons,” watching their favorite soccer teams from back home on the extensive cable system, even kicking the ball around themselves on a beautiful new soccer field — all paid for by taxpayers.”

“There’s ‘Spanish language yoga’ for those that want it,” they continue (seriously?!) “and trips to go bowling, to visit museums and even to hit up the amusement park, at $49 a ticket, also on taxpayers’ tab. The children chow on three meals a day plus snacks, since federal rules say they must be fed ‘until they are full.'”

“On-site recreation may include: soccer tournaments; movie night; playing games on the Wii; bingo and board games; basketball and volleyball tournaments; and Spanish language yoga. During the summer children engage in water-based activities such as swimming, fishing, and playing in the sprinklers,” explain documents obtained by the paper on the conditions of UAC housing.

The Washington Times explains that both images are true; UAC are held at the border in facilities that were designed in an era when the vast majority of those crossing the border illegally were adult, male Mexicans. But over the last few years, due to Obama-era policies, still in place, that automatically place UAC with sponsors in the US, unaccompanied minors have been flooding across the border.

The children spend up to 72 hours in the border facilities seen in the infamous 2014 photograph, where they are required by law to be released.

“If the children are UAC, meaning they jump the border without their parents or come as a family but become separated after their arrival, release comes much faster — 72 hours at the maximum, according to court-mandated rules,” the Times explains.

“Then it’s off to a dorm run by social workers contracted by the Health and Human Services Department, which pays for the yoga classes, the multicultural crayons and all the other trappings designed to ease the UAC into a possible life in the U.S.”

Under the Trump administration’s new “zero tolerance” policy, more adult aliens are being detained and processed as criminals (as they have broken a law by crossing the border), meaning even more children are yes, being separated from their parents, but they don’t stay in the cages very long, as we’ve learned.

The cost on the American taxpayer for the cushy facilities they are placed in is staggering.

“HHS paid more than $1.4 billion last year to accommodate nearly 41,000 UAC in its shelters. They stayed an average of 41 days, which means taxpayers paid about $670 a day for each child. The cost of holding someone in a federal prison — a comparison some immigration activists make to the UAC situation — is just $85 a day,” the Times notes.

It seems that the truth behind yet another sensationally covered story, veiled with cries of “racism” and “white supremacy”, is more complex than simple headlines or viral tweets would have you believe. As Trump critics continue to accuse the administration of policies meant to repress people of color rather than secure a dangerously open Southern border, the truth of who exactly is crossing the border and what exactly happens to them once they cross is much less inhumane than opponents of border enforcement claim.

When you take a step back from the ideological battles and pop-culture, intersectional politic reporting, it’s undeniable that the United States, regardless of all the issues at our Southern border, does more to help people fleeing poverty, violence, or oppressive regimes than any other nation on earth, and yet we’re constantly accused of being monstrous.

This is why Trump was elected. Because he spoke for millions of Americans who are tired of seeing our tax dollars go to help those in need only to be accused of being racist for advocating for stronger borders and more sensible budgets. It remains to be seen if Trump really can clean up and secure our borders, but we’ll certainly never get an accurate picture if we rely on the hysterical left for the facts, that’s for sure.

Letter Threatens To Burn Down Homes Of Trump Supporters In New Hampshire: ‘You Have Been Given Fair Warning’

Published

on

A very sick and twisted individual is sending out letters to those who are supporters of President Trump in the state of New Hampshire, threatening to burn their homes to the ground if he happens to lose the election but doesn’t concede. Local news outlets reported that the letter has been sent to various homes in the the town that have been displaying support for Trump. Here’s what the letter said via Daily Wire: Dear neighbor. You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter. Your address has been added to our database as a target when we attack should Trump not concede the election. We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make sure that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given “Fair Warning.” Always remember, it was “you” that started this Civil War. Be prepared to face the severe consequences of your pre-emptive actions against democracy. Brookline police Chief Bill Quigley confirmed two Trump supporters in his town also received the letter. “”I was kind of quite shocked that anyone would send a letter out with that type of threat,” he admitted. Quigley said he alerted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, adding that the perpetrator could be charged with a serious crime. He explained, “Not only with us, with criminal threatening. It’s on a felony level, because of the threat of burning homes down and causing injury, but it could also be with the postal inspectors, something on the federal level.” “I was very taken aback. This is my home. You’re not supposed to threaten my home. I’m very worried in the sense that this is going on in my town,” Milford resident Kelly told the press. Milford is a small town with a…

Matthew McConaughey Tells Americans To ‘Embrace’ Results Of 2020 Election ‘Whichever Way It Goes’

Published

Actor Matthew McConaughey has a message for Americans ahead of the 2020 presidential election and to be honest, it’s one you probably wouldn’t have guessed would come from someone with his amount of Hollywood clout. We’re all so used to raging liberals just hating on the president for no logical reason that when someone from the entertainment industry actually offers some sort of reasonable response to the political madness of our time it takes you off guard. According to McConaughey, regardless of which way the election works out, Americans should “embrace” it. via Fox News: McConaughey, 50, promoted his new book “Greenlights” on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday and spoke about his motto: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” Applying that motto to the race between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, he said, “It’s not inevitable who’s going to win.” “After that happens, whether it’s an incumbent or whether it’s Biden, after it happens is when it’s time to get constructive and not be in denial,” McConaughey stated. “It’s time to get constructive and not deny the fact of whatever’s happened and embrace the situation,” he said speaking about the future president. “Whoever is going to be commander in chief and president of the United States of America, that’s not something, hopefully, that we’re going to deny or be able to argue,” the actor told the “Fox & Friends” crew. “I hope it’s a clean election,” McConaughey went on. “Whichever way it goes I hope it’s clean and that there’s no debate.” Now, embracing it doesn’t mean just going with the flow completely and not holding whoever wins up to the standards of morality and the Constitution. But it does mean not being a crybaby and throwing a fit, burning neighborhoods to the ground and looting…
