I invite the “conservatives” here to think about this and not reject the story because it is told by Mother Jones. It is a good example of the right wing fake outrage machine in action without regard to ethics, law or common sense.
The “issue” is that while it is difficult to find baby formula right now Biden and “leftists” are providing formula to “illegal babies” held at the border. Do these jackasses not understand that when you hold babies in prison you have a legal and moral obligation to feed them? It is not a hard concept really.
Let me repeat – There is a legal obligation to feed prisoners. The mothers of these babies are not free to go out and search for formula or substitutes.
And how significant is this terrible drain on available supplies? The figure is not published but estimates on the number formula-using babies in custody range from 300 – 1,000. Let’s say 1,000. In the United States there are approximately 10 million infants two and under. Less than a drop in the bucket.
This is a good example of the hard-core dishonesty that now permeates “conservative” America. This is NOT an issue. The government has done NOTHING wrong. Spreading the news of this “favoritism” for “illegal babies” is deliberately divisive. What a bunch of losers!
