WaPo During Trump: ‘Kids In Cages’; WaPo During Biden: ‘Migrant Facility For Children’
“Big difference 20 months and a new President makes, @washingtonpost,” critic says.
By: Daily Wire, February 2021:
The once-great Washington Post is now just another outlet of Newspeak.
“This is not kids being kept in cages,….this is a facility…..blah blah blah”

In an Orwellian twist, the Jeff Bezos-owned paper has morphed “kids in cages” into “migrant facility for children.”
Throughout former President Donald Trump’s four years in the White House, the mainstream media, like the Post, repeatedly cited “kids in cages,” claiming foreigners entering the U.S. illegally had their children ruthlessly snatched from them and shoved into cages (it was actually former President Barack Obama who started the practice).
But all that’s changed now. “First migrant facility for children opens under Biden,” said the Post headline on Monday. But in another twist, the facility was actually opened by the Trump administration.
“Dozens of migrant teens boarded vans Monday for the trip down a dusty road to a former man camp for oil field workers here, the first migrant child facility opened under the Biden administration,” said the story. “The emergency facility — a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 — is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.”\
Out with “kids in cages,” in with “migrant facility for children.”

Forget the Post’s 2018 headlines, “The American tradition of caging children,” and “The real reason we’re locking children in cages.” And don’t even think about the 2019 piece headline, “Viewing US border cells derided as ‘cages,’ Central American officials pledge more immigration cooperation.”
In 2020, the Post’s editorial board wrote, “The tableaux of caged migrant children, torn from their parents’ arms, should be among the most enduring images produced by the president’s policies” in a piece warning about what Trump’s immigration agenda in a second term would look like.
And the Post goes on: “Government officials say the camp is needed because facilities for migrant children have had to cut capacity by nearly half because of the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border has been inching up, with January reporting the highest total — more than 5,700 apprehensions — for that month in recent years.”
So wait, they’re “unaccompanied” — which means they’re not snatched from their parents?
The new coinage didn’t get past eagle-eyed readers. “Kids in cages is now ‘migrant facility for children,’” radio host Dana Loesch declared
