Iowa Governor Says She Won’t Take in Migrant Children: ‘This is Not Our Problem; This is the President’s Problem’
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds says that her state does not have room to put up migrant children Biden has invited to flood the border. More governors should do the same thing, but Biden is trying to settle as many of the new invaders inside red states as he can. Then, if he can somehow manage to push through amnesty, the Democrats could turn some states blue.
Border Patrol says many are being settled in very small towns and they eat up the public dollars quickly.
Kim Reynolds said:
“This is not our problem; this is the president’s problem. He is the one that opened the borders. He needs to be responsible for this, and he needs to stop it.”
Reynolds had turned down a request by the Health and Human Services department to house hundreds of these migrant children. Biden currently has over 20,000 children detained at the border where some say they go hungry and rape is said to be prevalent in the detention center as well as sex between siblings.
If these accusations are true, Biden is a victimizer of children as well as an enabler for the Mexican cartels.
The Biden administration admitted that 170,000 illegal aliens were detained at the border in March with no sign of letting up. That’s the most in any month in over a decade and is 70,000 more than crossed in February.
One detention centers is at 729% of full capacity. Yet Biden and his henchpeople refuse to call it a crisis. The lamestream press has joined them on that venture.
According to the Des Moines Register, in late March, a HHS employee reached out to Iowa’s state government with a request that the state make any of its unoccupied residential child care beds available to migrant children.
But in response, Iowa Department of Human Services Director Kelly Garcia said that “Iowa is not in a position to take unaccompanied minors at this time.”
The Register noted that Iowa Department of Human Services spokesman Matt Highland acknowledged in an email that it “is an incredibly saddening and difficult situation,” but said the decision was due to the state’s limited resources.
