These heartbreaking scenes at the border are unfortunately occurring way too frequently and do not get as much news coverage as they deserve. All in all, it is beyond shameful that such atrocities are still taking place under Biden’s watch, and it’s shameful that it is not being addressed head-on by his administration.
