Florida Rep. Kat Cammack has devastated Joe Biden’s border policy by calling him the “ chief trader, ” as the number of migrant children entering the United States from Mexico is at the highest level in history.
Cammack was one of the Republican congressmen who traveled the border earlier this week, and she spoke of the dire circumstances in an interview with Fox news on Thursday.
“I was there in Mission, Texas just 24 hours ago. I saw firsthand young girls under the age of 10 who had been gang raped. They had shouted so loudly that their vocal cords gave out. This is a humanitarian crisis, ”said Cammack.
“I can’t even in good conscience call President Biden president, I have to call him ‘head trader’ because these kids are being trafficked.”

Last month, as many as 170,000 migrants were arrested illegally crossing the southern border

Biden has come under fire for reversing harsh Trump-era immigration policies, which his administration says has fueled the increase in border crossings since taking office.
Biden has overruled Trump policies that forced migrants to stay in Mexico as they go through the legal process to enter the US, narrowed ICE’s criteria for arrests and deportations, and halted construction of Trump’s border wall.
Last month, no fewer than 17,0200 migrants were arrested illegally crossing the southern border.
In March, most migrant children in history also crossed the border, with 18,890 unaccompanied minors housed in cramped shelters. The previous record of about 11,000 in May 2019.
“ If you have 20,000 children in custody and border police agents have been pushed to the limit and we see cartel members taunting our border patrol agents as they send these children under the age of six across the river on their own, this is the case . a humanitarian crisis of epic scale, ”said Cammack.
Meanwhile, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise similarly slammed Biden speaking about harrowing cases of child abuse during a Thursday performance on Fox and Friends.
‘I’ve talked to a lot of people who’ve been on the ground, it’s more than a disaster. What they have not only done with these border towns, the mayors, you can hear them, Democrat and Republican, expressing outrage over what President Biden has created, ”he said.

‘More than a third of the girls are sexually assaulted or raped on the way. Then they come to the United States and you have seen how they are treated – they are not given decent food and shelter, they are put next to someone six inches apart with COVID. ‘
It’s unclear where Scalise got his statistics, but Biden officials have admitted that reception facilities for migrants are dangerously overcrowded.
Cammack and Scalise’s allegations of child abuse come after Texas Governor Greg Abbott revealed on Wednesday that there have been “ credible ” reports of underage migrants being abused at a facility in Texas.
Abbott said he was warned about the alleged incidents at the Freeman Expo Center in San Antonio, i.e. are currently detaining 1,370 migrant children.
“This facility is a health and safety nightmare,” Abbot said.
The Biden government is now leading the abuse of children. To end this abuse, Biden’s administration must immediately close this facility. ‘

The border crisis shows no signs of slowing down for Biden, with the number of unaccompanied children arriving in the US soaring.
Some facilities are short of food and there are reports that children are starving and sleeping on the floor.
At one facility, human rights lawyers say children only occasionally have access to showers.
It was also revealed Thursday that Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services is spending $ 60 million a week to house the child migrants in 10 shelters across the country.
Figures from The Washington Post show that the cost of caring for one of these youths is $ 290 a day, and the 7,700 beds available are already completely overwhelmed.
President Joe Biden also attempted at his press conference at the end of March to characterize the influx as normal seasonal increases.
‘It happens every lonely year. There has been a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March – it happens every year, ‘Biden said at the time.
However, House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted Thursday, ‘President Biden said the rise was seasonal. But the # ‘s don’t lie – 172,000 migrants were taken into custody last month, two decades high.’
Last week, Biden declined to call the situation a crisis, despite human rights lawyers claiming that migrant children were starving and shower only occasionally. Pictured: Children at the Donna Migrant Facility in Texas
However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that the Republicans are actually responsible for the spike, and that conditions are improving under President Biden.
“The fact is that we are on the right track at the border under the leadership of President Biden,” Pelosi emphasized at an event in California on Thursday.
She added, “It’s about restructuring how we do what happens there because we were in a very bad situation under the Trump administration.”
The House speaker helps reinforce the Democratic narrative that former President Donald Trump and the Republicans are responsible for the growing crisis on the southern border.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insisted on Wednesday that the southern border crisis is under control, claiming: ‘We are on a good path at the border under President Biden’s leadership’
