[Ed. – Regardless of what U.S. law says, “We are programmed to receive.” Might as well reflect wholesale lawlessness in the name. Nothing in U.S. law authorizes simply cutting migrants loose into the United States. This is a blatant plan to violate federal law. Cue the Eagles cut.]
The Biden administration is weighing a new name for the facilities it is setting up to manage the influx of migrant children and families at the southern border, hoping to limit the criticism and emphasize that the buildings will hold people only temporarily.
Biden officials are considering naming the facilities “reception centers,” according to three people familiar with the discussions, on the logic that the name is less harsh-sounding. …
In particular, one official said, the new name would mark the Biden administration’s intention to use the “reception centers” not for holding people in custody, but for serving as sending-off points for releasing migrants into the United States.
