Amid a massive baby formula shortage which has left grocery store shelves empty, reports indicate that “pallets” of baby formula are being delivered to illegal immigrant detention centers at the border in another instance of the Biden administration putting Americans last.
Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) announced that massive amounts of baby formula are being shipped to a detention center in Texas while Americans’ chances of finding formula on supermarket shelves grow more slim by the day.
Cammack revealed in a pair of Facebook videos that a Border Patrol agent at the Ursula facility in McAllen sent her photos showing pallets of baby formula and other food for infants that had been delivered to the detention center.
“They are sending pallets — pallets — of baby formula to the border,” Cammack said. “Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula.”
“The first photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the U.S. border. Shelves and pallets packed with baby formula,” she wrote in a related Twitter post. “The second is from a shelf right here at home. Formula is scarce. This is what America last looks like.”
Cammack added in her first video that “we literally are struggling to find baby formula around the country; moms are struggling, going from store to store to store and then the stores are actually capping the amount of baby formula they will sell them.”
She went on to call this move by the Biden administration “unconscionable,” adding that the president’s open border policy is “crushing the middle class.”
“They hate everything about [former President] Donald Trump so much … they’re willing to hurt their own citizens,” Cammack added, saying it’s “absolutely outrageous.”
Cammack posted a second video later and was no less outraged, saying the Border Patrol agent told her, “Kat, you would not believe the shipment I just brought in.”
She went on to say that “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.”
While she wasn’t happy that the baby formula was going to “illegals that are crossing into the United States,” Cammack said “it is not the childrens’ fault at all.”
Rather what is “infuriating” is “that this is another example of the America last agenda that the Biden administration continues to perpetuate,” she added.
“I don’t know about you, but if I am a mother in anywhere, any-town 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,” Cammack also said.
Cammack noted that congressional Republicans are doing what they can to fight the Biden admin’s efforts to destroy America, but “we have zero leverage.”
