Why Are Democrats Silent On The Border Crisis?

For years, Democrats criticized the Trump administration over their treatment of illegal immigrants, claiming he was treating them horrendously. Now, the Biden administration has caused a surge of illegal immigration to come to the U.S. We are seeing a crisis happen. Facilities are overwhelmed. Border patrol is understaffed to handle the crisis. Yet for some reason, Democrats are completely silent on what is happening at the southern border. Why is that? I would like to give credit to my dad for giving me the idea for this article.

Look at what Democrats or Leftists said about Trump when it came to the borderThe fake concern of AOC crying at the detention center (which was completely fake) or Hollywood fakes who claimed to be distraught over how Trump treated illegals. Remember when TIME put a picture of a crying child next to Trump saying "This is America." Where are them on the current border crisis? When Trump was president, the border crisis wasn't even a thing. Things were under control. Now? It's a humanitarian crisis 

Facilities are overwhelmed. Border patrol cannot keep up. Ron DeSantis had to send police to help Texas. They've got so many people put in there, they cannot keep up with it. The Biden administration was trying to have social distancing, but there's so many people, it's physically impossible to do so. In one report found on CBS News, "there were not enough caregivers for the 500 migrant children under the age of 12 who were held there." A lawyer shared that at one facility, children could "only take one shower per week and hadn't seen the sun for a long time."

"Some of the boys said that conditions were so overcrowded that they had to take turns sleeping on the floor," the lawyer shared. 

Now, in recent headlines, an audio recording was leaked. The report revealed that a contractor told staff members the following: "We have already caught staff with minors inappropriately. Is that OK with you guys?'" 'NO.' The staff members responded. Said contractor continued by saying, "If you catch them, especially if it’s a staff member, you separate that minor from that person immediately." What caught people's attention is that the leaked audio from the contractor gave no implication to report any cases of sexual assault to minors by staff.

Everyone acted like Trump treated illegal immigrants so bad. That he and border patrol were evil racists. In actuality, the number of familial units coming to the border increased tremendously when Biden took office. There were numerous illegals from Mexico who were hoping Biden would win because they wanted to come here for free. Look at the graph above at the number of unaccompanied minors coming here. Most kids won't come here alone or willingly, so either they are with their family or they are with complete strangers who abandon them at the first sign of trouble.

The media wants you to believe Trump and his supporters were the ones who liked seeing kids in cages. Clearly that is not the case. Democrats claimed to care so much, yet they are in complete denial of what's happening at the border. At the time of me writing this, President Biden and Vice President Harris still have not visited the border. And anytime they are questioned about it, they deflect. In an interview with Lester Holt, Kamala responded to his questioning of if she actually went to the border with "And I haven't been to Europe either." They don't care about what these people are going through

Illegal immigrants are huge targets for sex trafficking or forced labor. Polaris Project stated that "The vast majority of victims (comprised of people from either Latin America or the Caribbean) came from Mexico (58%)." Polaris Project describes 5 types of trafficking target to immigrants (both legal and illegal): Agriculture, Domestic work, Construction, Restaurants, and Escort services.

In an article from One Bread Foundation, the writer states how traffickers see that invisible target, and take full advantage. 

"Exploitation of immigrants, especially undocumented, is extremely common. They are especially vulnerable to human traffickers due to their fear of deportation. Many traffickers will offer aid to undocumented immigrants, and out of fear of law enforcement, they will accept, often ending up enslaved in brothels or warehouses," the writer of One Bread states. 

We all had family or friends who would criticize Trump or call him a xenophobe/racist (as well as his supporters). Now I don't hear a thing from any of them. Why are Democrats ignoring the truth? Are they so blinded by talk shows like "Cuomo Prime Time" that they can't even see what's really happening? At least some Democrats, like Sen. Mazie Hirono or Rep. Henry Cuellar, has called out the Biden administration for ignoring this crisis. I truly hope more will join in and hold the Biden administration responsible for the crisis they caused.
