Iowa Gov. REJECTS taking in migrant children, says 'this is not our problem'


Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds basically told the Joe Biden administration to shove it. She says her state doesn't have the capacity to take in any migrant children and house them. These are children who arrived illegally while the southern border is facing massive numbers of migrants arriving because Joe Biden is a "nice guy."

Reynolds said it was the president's problem, not hers!

"We don't have the facilities. We are not set up to do that," Reynolds said during an interview with WHO radio on Thursday, during which she announced that she recently turned down a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to house hundreds of the migrant children.

"This is not our problem; this is the president's problem," she added defiantly. "He is the one that opened the borders. He needs to be responsible for this, and he needs to stop it."

Tens of thousands of unaccompanied migrant children are currently being held in grim, cage-like Border Patrol facilities along the southern border, oftentimes for longer than is legally permitted. The tragic situation is the result of a worsening crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, as unprecedented numbers of migrants surge into the country illegally expecting lenient treatment under President Joe Biden.

Reynolds makes a good point. President Joe Biden needs to deal with this himself, not expect governors to just start taking in all these people when they have their own issues to worry about and not enough room for them.
