(TheConservativeNews.org) – When advocates for a return to the policies of President Donald J. Trump say they want, “America First,” what they mean is that they want Americans to be first to be served in the United States of America by the US Government. No other story than this one will illustrate this concept better today.
“Empty shelves Biden” has been trending for weeks during a nationwide shortage of baby formula that has sent parents desperately rushing from store to store for provisions to feed their babies.
But one group of people who don’t have to worry about such hardships is illegal immigrants detained by the Southern border patrol, according to one lawmaker.
A Florida lawmaker told her followers that the Biden administration has been shipping “pallets” of baby formula to migrant holding facilities.
“They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border,” said Republican Rep. Kat Cammack in one of two online postings yesterday, on Twitter and one on Facebook. “
Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula,” she added, holding a photo of empty shelves where the formula would be.
Cammack said that her source was a border agent, who sent her photographs of the deliveries, and she posted one online to inform people about the hypocrisy.
“They’re receiving pallets and more pallets of baby formula at the border,” she said, holding one of the photos showing both Advantage brand formula.
“This was taken at Ursula processing facility in McAllen, Texas where thousands are being housed and processed and then released,” Cammack said on the video message.
“Kat, you would not believe the shipment I just brought in,” she said the agent told her. “He has been a border patrol agent for 30 years and he has never seen anything quite like this. He is a grandfather and he is saying that his own children can’t get baby formula.”
Cammack was not critical of migrants receiving the formula but said the administration should put American parents first- that would be America First, something that seems to be absolutely foreign to the Democrats.
“I don’t know about you, but if I am a mother, anywhere anytime in America, and I go to my local Walmart or Target or Publix or Safeway or Kroger or wherever it may be that you shop and you are seeing their shelves and you are seeing signs that you are not able to get baby formula. And then you see the American government sending by the pallet thousands and thousands of containers of baby formula to the border, that would make my blood boil,” she said.
She added, “it is not the childrens’ fault at all. But what is infuriating to me is that this is another example of the America last agenda that the Biden administration continues to perpetuate.”
