We’ve already seen abundant evidence of Joe Biden’s “more humane” treatment of migrants who have crossed the U.S. border in response to his open invitation. Pictures such as this one released by Project Veritas show wall-to-wall bodies draped in the same aluminum emergency blankets that the Left, including Biden, excoriated Donald Trump for handing out to those intercepted at the border.

But apart from these comfy digs courtesy of the new president, there are other happy scenes from the border that are being picked up by the media despite the administrations efforts to suppress them. One of them, which follows, is a video captured last Thursday by officials with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in Texas. It shows their encounter with a young child who had been left to wander alone and frightened in the desert by a group that had evidently arranged with his family to take him north.

In the clip, the sobbing child approaches the uniformed CBP agents and asks, “Can you help me?” The agent asks the boy  in Spanish whether he had been instructed “to come ask for help” to which the child responds, “No, I am coming because if I did not, where am I going to go? Somebody could abduct me, kidnap me. I am scared.”

As the Daily Mail notes:

New government statistics released last week revealed that 171,000 migrants were caught by US authorities at the border in March — the highest monthly total in two decades and the latest sign of the mounting humanitarian challenge confronting President Joe Biden.

The total includes about 19,000 unaccompanied migrant children. … (RELATED: Migrants drown attempting to cross Rio Grande. Will Biden blame himself this time?)

Kamala Harris, who Biden inexplicably placed in charge of cleaning the mess he made at the border, has been MIA so far, having last been seen selling the administration’s COVID relief package, which has already been signed into law.

Talk about your priorities.

As Biden would say, when speaking about the solutions of another president, “we are better than this.”
