Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says Joe Biden should shoulder blame amid allegations of child abuse and neglect at an overcrowded San Antonio migrant facility.
Abbott made the declaration at a press conference Wednesday evening, following tips to authorities about the alleged abuse occurring inside the Freeman Expo Center. The facility is currently holding 1,370 migrant children.
'This facility is a health and safety nightmare,' Abbot declared.
'The Biden administration is now presiding over the abuse of children. To end this abuse, the Biden administration must immediately shut down this facility.
In addition to the claims of child sex abuse and neglect, Abbott also claimed that there were reports of understaffing, children not eating and the failure to separate children with or without COVID-19.
'While we wait on the Biden administration to act, I'm directing DPS and Texas Rangers to immediately begin investigation these allegations,' the Gov. stated.
