Oooh, boy: Team Biden on Monday wheeled out its line on the border crisis, and it’s a doozy. There is no crisis, but if there is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Seriously: Thousands of minors, mostly from Central America, are traveling for weeks without their parents to enter the United States illegally and then request asylum, and Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas insists that’s not a “crisis” but simply a “challenge.” No matter that the migration leaves the kids vulnerable to rapists and human traffickers all along the 1,000-plus-mile journey — and then overwhelms US border communities and forces detention of kids in so-called “cages.” It’s no crisis, Mayorkas insists. After all, it’s “loving parents” who are sending 9-year-olds off into this madness, he says as he rejects the Trump “remain in Mexico” policy on asylum claimants: “We are not apprehending a 9-year-old child who’s come alone, who has traversed Mexico, whose parents — whose loving parents — had sent that child alone, we are not expelling that 9-year-old child to Mexico” when the kid is from Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador.
