It's a travesty and even the libs are starting to raise heck about it. I thought the young lady from ABC was pretty forceful at the presser yesterday. Somebody needs to get cameras in there TODAY.

Detaining these children at the border is a human rights abuse being committed by the United States government.

Seems like her mansion renovations are getting in the way of taking action on the border crises.

Kamala Harris MIA during border crisis: Where is she?
The vice president is reportedly frustrated with ongoing mansion renovations


This comes as the Biden administration is now asking for government volunteers to help manage the migrant surge.

At least Biden admits he's in over his head and needs help.

San Diego teachers will provide 'in-person' instruction to migrant children, even though san Diego schools have been distance learning for a year and aren't starting hybrid until April 12th.

Inside a Border Patrol facility holding 16 times more migrants than its capacity

More than 18,000 migrant children in US custody.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) holding facility in Donna, Texas, is supposed to house no more than 250 migrants during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Tuesday, the tent complex was holding more than 4,100 migrants, including 3,200 unaccompanied children, according to Oscar Escamilla, a Border Patrol official in the Rio Grande Valley who briefed reporters during the first press tour of a CBP facility under President Biden.

Pods designed to accommodate 32 children were acutely overcrowded, with one housing more than 600 unaccompanied teenagers. Children in one of the pods stood shoulder-to-shoulder, waiting to collect drink pouches and cheese crackers. Social distancing could not be enforced.

Last month, nearly 9,500 unaccompanied children arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border, a record high for any February in history. U.S. border officials are on track to take more than 16,000 unaccompanied minors into custody in March — an all-time monthly high.

I have been told that Texas when the joined the US reserved the right to be seperated into eight states.
it was five states, and it is very far from clear as a legal proposition or argument.

Correct on the splitting of states when Texas joined the Union. But the argument of secession comes down to whether you subscribe to Compact or Contract theory of the Constitution. Additionally during many of the state conventions on the ratification for the Constitution, States approved the compact and withheld the right to exit if they see fit. Examples of this include Virginia and New York. Federalist Judges continued to expand the powers of the federal government during the 18th and early 19th centuries under John Marshall in particular. The history on the subject is quite interesting.

Yeah, I'm very familiar with all of that history/law....I just didn't want to get pulled into the details of it with @docjoctoo and the MAGA Boys.

So....have fun. :p

Lol, I'd be curious how the MAGA movement views secession. You'd almost think MAGA by its premise is against the notion of secession. But if you look at it from a nullification standpoint, I'd think the MAGA movement would support that notion due to the curbing of federal overreach. I read the below book on the subject a couple months ago if anyone is interested in the Compact side of the argument, since it is not as widely published.

They also reserved the right to secede, but that didn't work out so well for them.
That's not entirely true about Texas. But there are States, who when ratified the constitution, reserved the right to secede (e.g. Virginia and New York).

But as I said earlier, whether you view a State's right to secede is based on whether you subscribe to Compact or Contract theory of the Constitution. And thus whether you believe that each State within the Union is its own sovereign entity or that the Union is the sovereign entity.

Back when I took tejas history they told us that the secession deal was originally in the constitution and that the state could break up into eight states, but some of that was altered upon re-entering the union. Its all philosophical now

Agreed.

The flippant response to the pro-successioners and compact theory proponents is: yeah, the Civil War kinda resolved all those questions.
