They reported this week that there are cases of sexual abuse at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas, which currently has more than 1,600 children, ”said the Fox News host. “But the head of a nonprofit that provides legal services to immigrants said, ‘The only reason Abbott is now acting like he is caring for the children in these facilities is for political reasons.’
Governor, during the Trump years there were thousands of complaints of sexual abuse in migrant shelters. Not to say what’s going on now is right, but we couldn’t find a case where you complained and shouted this out when President Trump was President.
Governor Abbott responded with a series of words about how different Trump was as president, but couldn’t explain why he was talking about abuse in detention centers for migrants now and not then.
The reason for this is because Republicans are still trying to build the narrative of their fake border crisis. The fact is, the situation is better under Biden than under Trump. Children are not torn away from their parents and then lose themselves.
Greg Abbott was arrested by Chris Wallace for doing something rare on Sunday news broadcasts. Wallace exposed Abbott as a partisan hack hypocrite who only cares about issues like abuse of migrants when Democrats are in power.
