Amid Nationwide Formula Shortage, “Pro-Life” Republicans Suggest Letting Migrant Babies Starve to Death

The United States is in the midst of a major formula crisis affecting some of the most vulnerable populations: infants. A perfect storm of factors — pandemic-related supply chain delays; government bureaucracy; barriers that only a few companies organization in the formula milk market; The closure of one of the country’s largest formula factories, following the recall of a contaminated batch and the deaths of two infants – has led to a frightening reality for parents. desperate and trying to feed her baby. People who have the time — and many who don’t — are driving long distances just to find empty shelves. Private sellers are said to be price gouging, charging customers double or triple the normal amount. Unable to find what they need, some parents have been forced to portion out formula servings as they search, often in vain, to find more. A woman told The New York Times Recently she found herself “panic, crying on the floor,” telling her husband, “Dude, I can’t feed our baby, I don’t know what to do.” The solution from the Republicans, many of whom profess to be pro-life? Letting the infants of undocumented parents starve to death. Or, at the very least, use the situation to fool immigrants and score the cheapest political points.

On Wednesday, representatives of Florida Kat Cammack tweeted A pair of photos, writing, “First photo is from this morning at the Ursula Processing Center at the US border. Shelves and pallets for packaging baby formula. The second is from a shelf right at home. Scarcity formula. This is what America ultimately looks like.” Later, on Facebook, she claimed to have obtained the photos from a “border patrol agent” who had been doing the job “30 years”. In the video, the congresswoman generously admits that while all children deserve to eat, it’s not America’s duty to feed them.

“It’s not the kids’ fault at all,” Commack told her followers. “But what angers me is that this is yet another example of the ‘Last America’ agenda that the Biden administration continues to uphold.” Cammack claims to be pro-life and pro-only abortion in extreme cases in the first trimester ready to overthrow Roe v. Wade.

A day after Cammack’s suggestion that migrant children locked up by the US government be forced to starve, the governor of Texas Greg Abbott jumped into the fray, issuing a joint statement with the National Border Patrol Council: “While moms and dads stare at empty grocery store shelves, the Biden administration is happy to provide supplying baby formula to illegal immigrants crossing our southern border…. Our children deserve a president who puts their needs and survival first — not one who provides essential supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he proclaimed himself to be. oath of service. Like Cammack, Abbott wants people to believe he’s a “pro-life” and signed a bill last September banning abortions after six weeks, leading to an increase in imitation laws around the country. country.

Also on Thursday, Texas congressman Troy Nehls tweeted, “Baby formula should reach Americans before being bought out of wedlock.” (You can guess where Nehls is when it comes to abortion.) And we’re sure you’ll be completely shocked to learn that Fox News also believes that migrant children should be forced to death. As the matter of the media’ Matt Gertz notes, a small collection of comments from internet stars over the past two days include: “Why are we illegally feeding babies before American babies?” (Jesse Watters); “These are not people who respect our borders, our laws and our sovereignty. Why don’t all the pallets reach American families first? ” (Sean Hannity); and “When they get here, the Biden administration will provide them with a food supply that you can’t afford. Those would include baby formula…. You wonder how many of these will take, you wonder? So humiliating”(Tucker Carlson). Fox, of course, is a big voice in the anti-discrimination movement.

As The Washington Post‘S Glenn Kessler note, federal law literally requires the government to provide food — as well as other basic human rights — to the people it detains. But in reality that was only a hindrance to the Republicans in their long quest to destroy those not born here. Like Jezebel’s Caitlin Cruz wrote on Thursday: “Immigrants and immigrants of all ages are perfect lunatics. First, they take their jobs; Now they want to take food out of babies’ mouths, and at the same time force pregnant women to full term. The hypocrisy is so dense that I want to strangle it. “
