(ReliableNews.org) – There is no denying we are in the midst of a crisis on the border. Tens of thousands of immigrants are pouring into the US and the Biden administration has done little to stem the flow. Many likely have COVID-19. Now the administration is making a ridiculous request.
On Tuesday, March 23, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby told reporters that the military has received a request from Health and Human Services to allow them to use two bases to house unaccompanied minor immigrants. The Biden administration wants to send the kids to Texas to Fort Bliss and Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland.
Kirby said the military has not made a decision about whether it will approve the request, but reports indicate the Biden admin is moving forward with the plans.

The president and his administration have an obligation to protect the American people. During a global pandemic, shuffling illegal immigrants from one place to another puts Americans in danger from COVID-19. It is also going to put a strain on the military. It’s absurd.
