The Issue: Newly released photos of crowded conditions in holding facilities at the southern border.

Clearly, the current administration was trying to hide the disgusting situation created by President Biden & Co. at the border. Now pictures have come out showing the mess the Democrats created (“Biden’s Cages,” March 23).

Just like Biden destroyed thousands of American jobs with the stroke of his pen, he destroyed an orderly process to enter our country created by former President Donald Trump. Biden and his team have put Americans last.

On the one hand, we’re supposed to believe the border facilities are perfectly safe for all the illegal immigrants who are being held there.

And at the same time, we’re also supposed to believe that it’s way too dangerous for the media to go in and see what’s going on. Who else but “fool me all the time“ voters would buy this?

No one argues that these immigrants need a new world to live in — better schools, better health care (most of them have none), better jobs, etc., but we are in the middle of a raging pandemic, with more cases popping up all over the country.

So many people are still having a very hard time finding places to go to get the vaccine. How can you care for these people when you can’t even take care of your own citizens? Sam King

In two short months, Biden and the Democrats created a crisis to serve their own interests at the expense of the American people. After all, they are the party that is proud to never let a crisis go to waste.

There is nothing remotely humane about what is happening at our border, and it’s an example of how truly irresponsible this administration is.

It is becoming quite apparent that Biden, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer don’t care what this will do to our country, much less the people they are allowing to flood into it, so long as they can increase their constituency.

Blame is better to give than receive. Biden and his administration refuse to allow reporters to see the inhumane conditions at the border holding places, and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shifts blame onto Trump’s policies and insists he’s the reason for the crisis at hand.

Anyone who thinks children are being sent to family members are mistaken. Many are trafficked and recruited. Coyotes are making money on each migrant who illegally crosses the border.

Democratic-run cities will continue to invite and shelter dangerous repeat offenders in their sanctuary cities. Taxpayers will foot the bills, and law-abiding citizens will continue to become victims of crimes.

Regarding these “heartbreaking” pictures of illegal-immigrant facilities at the border, including such deprivation as mats and foil covers: Was anyone heartbroken at the sight of our National Guard members on cement floors in garages at the Capitol?

Lest we forget, these people all crossed our border of their own free will. We have no obligation to provide taxpayer-funded accommodations at all.

Wake up, America. No other country in the world puts up with such nonsense.

Sharon Wylie

Westport, Conn.

Our senile and clueless commander-in-chief has quickly made a disastrous mess of our southern border by implementing a policy that not only will result in massive tax increases but pose an immediate serious threat to our national security.

He preached that he would unite the country, but in two short months, he has deepened the divide by ignoring the will of half the US population and unilaterally imposing numerous asinine and destructive policies with the stroke of a pen.

Governing in this manner is not the American way.
