The first casualties of the baby formula shortage have started to roll in.
Two children in Tennessee were hospitalized this week because of the unavailability of formula needed for their specific diet.
The Biden administration was well aware of the looming shortage back in February but did nothing to address the issue until now.
Ride It Out
When the big recall was issued back in February, the threat of a shortage as supplies wore down was very real.
If anyone in this administration had a clue, measures would have been taken to import more formula.
This is a crisis that did not have to happen by any means, but nobody in the puppet regime has a brain, so here we are.
On the two children hospitalized at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Dr. Mark Corkins, division chief of pediatric gastroenterology, stated, “These are young children who have health conditions and special medical needs that have specific dietary requirements.
“Their bodies did not adapt well to the new formula type and they required treatment via IV fluids and supplemental nutrition.”
Homeland Secretary Mayorkas has rejected the idea that this administration is putting illegal immigrants first, but that is exactly what is happening.
We have an average of about 166,000 illegals entering this country every month, many of them family units and unaccompanied children.
If they were not permitted to stay here, maybe the shelves at our grocery stores and pharmacies would look like the shelves at detention centers, which are stocked to the ceiling with formula.
One thing I am certain of… if you are an American citizen, regardless of race, color, or creed, this administration could care less about you.
