Democrats have taken an interesting route while attempting to defend against Republican criticism of the Biden Administration’s baby formula prioritization.
Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott was one of several Republicans who criticized the Biden Admin for giving “critical supplies to illegal immigrants before the very people he took an oath to serve.”
In a statement, Abbott said that “Children are our most vulnerable, precious Texans and deserve to be put first.”
Hillary Clinton chose to go to bat for the Biden Admin and in a quote tweet of journalist Evan Smith, who shared the statement from Abbott, she claimed that “The Republican, ‘pro-life’ position is now that certain babies should starve.”

Pallets of baby formula are being sent to holding facilities at the border amid a shortage that has seen many parents unable to find it at their local stores, according to U.S. House Rep Kat Cammack (R-FL).
Cammack posted a video to Facebook Wednesday where she explained, “They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border.”
“Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula,” Cammack lamented.
The Washington Post has given Cammack’s claim four Pinocchios, calling it a “ridiculous faux outrage.”
“The administration cannot be faulted for following the law and providing baby formula to undocumented immigrants,” the publication insisted.
