Biden Sends Migrant Kids To Former Japanese Internment Camp Site

Staff Report

LOS ANGELES, CA — The Los Angeles County Fairgrounds, one of the places Japanese Americans were held during World War II, will serve as an emergency shelter for unaccompanied children who have crossed the border into the United States, L.A. County has announced.

Hilda Solis, chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, said the decision was made after discussions with the Biden White House.

The Biden administration has contacted communities throughout the nation to find space for undocumented children being sheltered in Border Patrol facilities. It even urged, unsuccessfully, that NASA employees go to the border to volunteer in the overcrowded camps.

Also known as the Pomona Fairplex, the mega-facility in the city of Pomona is the third in Southern California to serve in that capacity.

In 1942, months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, President Franklin Roosevelt authorized the detention of Japanese Americans, fearing they would be loyal to the emperor of Japan.

The Pomona location was selected as one of the camps. A California Historic Landmark plaque near Fairplex, at around 1099 West McKinley Avenue, Pomona, commemorates the event.

Opened in May 1942, the detention camp had 309 barracks, 8 mess halls, and 36 shower and latrine facilities. It reached a peak population of more than 5,000 before it closed later in the year. Most of the internees were transferred to another camp in Wyoming.

Today, the location serves as the Fairplex parking lot. In recent months, it has hosted one of L.A. County’s mega Covid-19 vaccination sites.

“Los Angeles County has a responsibility and an opportunity to care for unaccompanied minors coming to the United States,” Solis said Thursday.

“This is not a border crisis – but, instead, it is everyone’s crisis.”

Long Beach and San Diego have both pledged to convert their convention centers into temporary shelters for migrant children.

Gavin Newsom wants as many as he can get. So everyone’s taxes will be at least doubled in Kalifornia, Gas taxes will triple, State income tax will double, robberies, rapes, murders will increase by incalculable numbers and all LEO’s will be told to Stand Down.

This situation – 20,000 undocumented, unaccompanied and nearly unprotected children being dispersed throughout the country is a pedofile’s dream. They are subjected to abuse throughout their journey and when they finally arrive it’s more of the same. What’s Biden doing to protect them? Nothing.

Go look at the press coverage of Trump housing kids at Fort Sill in 2019. EVERY article says “former internment camp” but when Obama previously sent kids to that same place, they only said “Fort Sill”. So save your selective outrage.

It’s actually a prison like facility. Send these illegal aliens back to their motherland. Complete the wall. Spread the word in Central America, come here and you’ll go to jail, every man, woman and child.

No Solis, they are not here legally and are not the responsibility of anybody but their parents. Back in their home countries and should be deported.

These illegals couldn’t afford to pay cartel and admitted tbey must work it off. So Biden just let thousands of future gangbangers into America. Tbey will do anything the cartels ask or else their family back home gets tortured/murdered.

To be fair, Biden administration is giving illegal Immigrants debit cards and cash that will probably be used to partially “pay back” cartels
