Governor Greg Abbott orders Biden admin to close down San Antonio migrant facility after claims of children being sexually abused

Published

Texas Governor Greg Abbott brought to light some reliable sources of claims of children being maltreated and sexually abused at a migrant facility in San Antonio. In a Wednesday press conference, Abbott called for the Biden administration to close down the migrant facility at the Freeman Coliseum Expo Center in San Antonio and urged that the children be moved to a different federally run facility.

Abbott claims the Biden admin caused all this and fails to take control of it. They opened borders and did not have a plan for the influx of adolescents they brought here. Now they face claims of unacceptable child abuse and neglect.

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services both were given information that migrant adolescents were being mistreated at the Freeman Coliseum.

It is being said the children are being sexually assaulted, going without food, and not being quarantined from other kids when infected with COVID. Also, there are claims they are understaffed and cannot properly supervise the children.

“We don’t know the total number of children abused,” the governor of Texas said.

At the news conference, Abbott said that these claims were coming from more than one person at the facility.

“To end this abuse, the Biden administration must immediately shut down this facility,” Abbott declared. “The children who are in this facility should be moved to other federally run facilities where the federal government has the space, personnel, and resources to ensure their safety.”

“The Biden administration has already said they have other locations across the entire country,” Abbott said. “Certainly they must have locations that have better staff, better safety measures, and situations where children would not be subject to abuse like this.”

“Thousands of children have already been sent to multiple locations across the state of Texas, and from every location that I’ve have heard about in the state of Texas the number of children far exceeds what is allowed by law,” Abbott added.

“President Biden’s disastrous decisions caused this crisis, and his administration must act now to protect these children, secure the border, and end this crisis,” Abbott said in a press release.

Abbott has commanded the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Rangers to open an instant investigation into the claims. The investigation will be lead by Richard Henderson, senior Texas Rangers lieutenant.

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said the claims were concerning if true and requested a detailed investigation.

A White House spokesperson answered to the claims of abuse of illegal immigrants on Wednesday night.

“The Biden Administration takes the safety and well-being of children in its care very seriously,” the White House statement reads. “Currently we see no basis for Governor Abbott’s call to shut down the San Antonio Freeman Coliseum as an intake site, however, his claims will be looked into and investigated by the Department of Health and Human Services.”

Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said he was doubtful of the allegations.

“I’ve been out there, I’ve seen what’s going on,” Wolff told KENS. “They’re getting three hot meals a day, they’re getting two snacks a day. There’s a separate tent where up to 300 of them are cohorted if they do have COVID.”

“Health and Human Services (representatives) are out there, Homeland Security is out there, Federal Protective Services is out there. They’ve got … different agencies. CDC’s out there,” Wolff said. “I’ve not heard anything until the governor came down and said this. I just don’t know if it’s true or not, what he’s saying.”

The first five-hundred migrant males entered the facility on March twenty-ninth from El Paso during the illegal immigration surge. The males, ages thirteen to seventeen years old, were given a medical screening, clothes, and other necessities, stated by the Department of Health and Human Services. As of Wednesday, the Freeman facility was lodging 1,645 adolescents, 283 of them had tested positive for COVID and are isolated, HHS officials told KENS.

Up to 2,100 migrant kids could be lodged at the Freeman Coliseum, Bexar County officials told KSAT-TV. Plus there are an additional three-hundred medical beds ready at a separate facility.

Wolff said the adolescents would stay at the facility for 5 to 9 days, but those who tested positive for COVID-9 would be kept for two weeks.

Last month, Abbott bashed the Biden administration for other dangerous conditions at two other Texas migrant facilities. Abbott brought up serious water issue allegations at the migrant housing facility in Midland and of a COVID outbreak at the Carrizo Springs migrant facility.

Cruz criticizes Biden’s ‘unconstitutional’ vaccine mandate: ‘They want to change the topic from Afghanistan’

Cruz calls Afghanistan the evacuation the ‘worst foreign policy catastrophe in a generation’

Senator Ted Cruz, said Sunday that President Biden’s vaccine requirement for private companies is intended to fail and being utilized only as a distraction from his mistakes made in Afghanistan.

While appearing on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Cruz said Biden’s standard demandung businesses with hundred or more workers to require the COVID-19 vaccine or weekly testing is “illegal” and simply intended to get the Democratic president back in the media’s good side after he was broadly criticized for his sloppy military evacuation in Afghanistan.

“They want to change the topic from Afghanistan,” the senator said. “It’s why Biden issued this completely illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandate, because he wanted to change the topic from the disaster in Afghanistan.”

“The vaccine mandate is going to be struck down in court. They know that,” he continued. “But the president is defying the law because he wanted the press to start defending him and stop talking about the disasters in Afghanistan. And he’s counting on a bunch of big businesses, in particular, forcing their employees to comply before the matter is ever adjudicated and before the order is struck down.”

Cruz proceeded to contend that each policy decision by Biden, foreign and domestic, has been driven by “pure politics.”

“When it comes to Afghanistan, Joe Biden and his administration presided over the worst foreign policy catastrophe in a generation,” he said. “They put politics in front of everything else. They abandoned Americans behind enemy lines, and it was a disaster. We were routed there, because Joe Biden surrendered.”

“He fled and left hundreds if not thousands of Americans in harm’s way and we are going to be paying the price – our nation is going to pay the price for our president’s weakness and incompetence for years to come,” he added.

Cruz also said the world is less protected because of Biden’s actions in Afghanistan, contending that America’s foes have overserved the president’s shortcoming and will not hesitate to take advantage of it, referring China for instance.

“Unfortunately, I believe the chances of a Chinese amphibious assault on Taiwan have increased tenfold in the last month,” Cruz said. “If that happens it would be utterly disastrous, but weakness invites aggression.”

“When you have a president who rolls over for everything, it only invites the bad guys to do worse and worse things,” he said.

Ten Chinese aircraft entered Taiwan’s air defense zone on Friday, the day after the democratically governed island reported a $9 billion boost to military spending to counter the danger from central China, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory.

Chants of ‘F*** Joe Biden’ at diverse vaccine mandate protest, thousands embrace at NYC freedom rally: ‘This is the power we want to send to the world’

A large number of New Yorkers spoke up against vaccine mandates on Saturday. A diverse group in New York City protested against the government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate orders.

A diverse group walked through the streets of New York City on Saturday; some waved American, Gadsden, and LGBTQ flags. Some protestors were holding signs that read: “My body, my choice,” “Latinos against forced vaccines,” “God is with us,” and “LGBTQ people for medical freedom.”

There were moms demanding the end of mask mandates for their kids in school. There were some demanding the government to recognize natural immunity and requesting that those with past COVID-19 infection be absolved from the vaccine mandate.

The freedom rally halted in Times Square, where speakers conveyed messages against COVID-19 vaccine mandates. At one point, the ideologically coordinated group embraced one another in a sign of unity against the mandates.

“This is the power that we want to send to the world,” a speaker said.

There were chants of “Wake up New York!” and “My body, my choice!”

One highlighted speaker at the freedom rally cited President Biden, who recently said, “What more do you need to see? We’ve made vaccinations free, safe and convenient. We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin. And your refusal has cost all of us.”

The speaker told the protestors, “Joe Biden, your patience is wearing thin? We lost our patience!”

The crowd responded by reciting, “F*** Joe Biden!”

This anti-Biden chant was utilized at college football stadiums recently.

On Sept. 9, Biden declared a general vaccine mandate for companies with more than a hundred workers, which will affect a hundred million Americans.

On Aug. 16, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an emergency executive order demanding residents to give proof of coronavirus vaccination to enter indoor eating at restaurants, cinemas, gyms, and more.

The demonstration was just one of many “World Wide Rally For Freedom” occasions that occurred in communities around the world.

“We will push back against widespread propaganda, by producing our own media, and advancing our own narrative, instead of succumbing to the one being pushed on us. We will not accept the rampant politicization of science and medicine, and we will return these institutions to being neutral sources of information for the benefit of society, over government and corporate interests,” an official statement from the protestors read.

There were also big protests in France and Canada.

Protests in Australia became violent, and more than two hundred were apprehended in Melbourne.

Biden aides set up a ‘wall’ to protect him from unscripted occasions, book claims

The book depicts the internal White House staff members ‘ process as a ‘cocooning’ of the president

Top White House aides set up a “wall” to protect President Joe Biden from unscripted occasions and long interviews in the midst of fears of the president’s touchiness and propensity for ruining statements, as indicated by a recent book.

“Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa referred to various of episodes from the blunder inclined president in the beginning days of his administration, including a back-and-forth with a CNN journalist for which he later apologized.

“That side of Biden — his tendency to at times be testy or mangle statements — was still with him and now part of his presidency,” the book says.

Thus, various Biden associates told the journalists that Chief of Staff Ronald Klain and then-White House advisor Anita Dunn worked to keep such occurrences from happening by keeping him away from “unscripted events or long interviews.”

“They called the effect ‘the wall,’ a cocooning of the president,” they wrote.

However, the creators note that those episodes still kept showing up, regardless of that defensive air pocket.

The book says that the White House needed damage control after Biden reported he had struck a significant bipartisan infrastructure deal, but then said it was dependent on a more liberal spending bundle being passed.

It reportedly shocked Democrats, who considered them as separate, and infuriated Republicans who were unhappy about the caveat. It prompted officials working the telephones to fix the damage, and Biden giving a long statement to explain his position.

The book contains various disclosures, specifically its announcing regarding how General Mark Milley was in correspondence with the Chinese to console them about feelings of trepidation of an assault during the mayhem encompassing the Jan. 6 Capitol revolt.

The White House did not quickly respond to Fox News’ request for input.
