Going from well managed to uncontrollable in 45 days

Entropy is a stone bitch. The Southern border was under control when President Trump left office.  Now?
From CBS News:

Record 3,200 migrant children stuck in Border Patrol custody, with nearly half held past legal limit
More than 3,200 migrant children were stuck in Border Patrol facilities on Monday, with nearly half held beyond a three-day legal limit, as the Biden administration struggles to respond to the sharp increase in the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

According to government documents obtained by CBS News, nearly 1,400 unaccompanied minors had been held in Customs and Border Protection (CBP) holding facilities for more than three days as of Monday, despite the agency's legal obligation to transfer these children to shelters operated by the U.S. refugee agency within 72 hours of taking them into custody.

Nearly 170 unaccompanied children stuck in Border Patrol custody are under the age of 13, according to the CBP documents.

And how many can they hold?

As of Monday, the Office of Refugee Resettlement had only about 500 beds available near the southern border for the increasing number of migrant children entering U.S custody, according to a document from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which oversees the refugee agency.

Not good numbers. Looks like the people controlling Joseph Robinette Biden are awarding positions in the administration based on fealty and not on competence. These people are not elected and there is no consequence if they do not do a good job.

As with any bureaucracy, if they publicly fuck up, they will publicly be removed from their post, placed on "administrative leave" for about six months and then they will be quietly rehired in a different position - often with a nice pay raise for their troubles - and that is that. No accountability. No oversight. Rot from top to bottom.
