Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Breitbart.com: “AOC on Joe Biden Opening Migrant Holding Facility: 'This Is Not Okay'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says President Joe Biden’s opening of detention centers along the United States-Mexico border “is not okay.”

This week, Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (HHS) opened a facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas that will hold up to 700 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) between the ages of 13 and 17. The UACs will stay at the 66-acre site until they are released into the U.S. interior to be placed with sponsors, who are oftentimes illegal alien family members.

Days after Biden took office, DHS officials moved forward with plans to construct and open a processing center in Donna, Texas, near the Rio Grande Valley Sector’s existing processing center.

Biden, in August 2019, said, “Close them down!” and “We don’t need them” when talking about border detention facilities that President Trump’s administration had utilized to control migration.

In a series of statements, Ocasio-Cortez — who once compared border detention facilities to “concentration camps” in 2019 — denounced the Biden administration for opening the facilities and said DHS “shouldn’t exist.”
