White House press secretary Jen Psaki struggled on Monday to explain to reporters why President Joe Biden’s administration was considering putting up migrants in hotel rooms while our own National Guards were forced to sleep on the floor when they protected Capitol Hill.
The Biden administration has awarded a Texas-based nonprofit $86 million to provide hotel rooms for six months for approximately 1,200 illegal alien families who crossed our southern border. By contrast, for several weeks after Biden’s inauguration National Guard troops slept on the floor of the Capitol building.
“That’s a disparity a lot of people are pointing out,” noted Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson, “that our National Guard was treated one way and then illegal immigrants are going to be put in hotel rooms.”
Psaki responded weakly that Biden personally called the head of the National Guard about the issue. “I know that was some time ago, but that was the reaction he took at the time,” she said before moving on to other questions.
The real answer is that the Biden administration, and Democrats generally speaking, will always prioritize illegal aliens over our own troops.
