'Pro-Life' Conservatives Are Mad the Government Isn't Letting Migrant Infants Starve to Death

There’s a baby formula shortage in the United States. Republican lawmakers and conservative media members are taking frustration out on immigrants.

Fox News hosts have spent the past 24 hours raising hell over immigrant babies at the U.S.-Mexico border receiving formula, arguing that it should instead be distributed to Americans first. “[For] American families there’s a shortage, but if you’re a migrant, don’t worry because Uncle Sam has a stash of that,” Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy said Friday morning.

The subject became fodder for right-wing xenophobia earlier this week, with Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) on Wednesday tweeting a picture of what she said was “shelves and pallets packed with baby formula” at the Ursula Processing Center in McAllen, Texas. She contrasted that with a picture of a bare store shelf, writing, “This is what America last looks like.”

A day later, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, in a preview of what would follow on Fox airwaves later that night, released a statement along with National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd accusing Biden of “turn[ing] a blind eye to parents across America” by “giv[ing] critical supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he took an oath to serve.”
