Biden Admin Restricting What Border Patrol Can Tell the Media About Migrant Surge

Biden Admin Restricting What Border Patrol Can Tell the Media About Migrant Surge

If we don’t have a border crisis then why is Biden being so secretive about the border?

Current and former Customs and Border Protection officials told NBC News that President Joe Biden’s administration restricts information the agency can tell the media about the border crisis.

The officials described the restrictions as a “gag order.” They also said no one gave the direction with an official memo. Instead, they’ve passed down instruction through word of mouth.

Although only a few months old, the Biden administration has remained hush-hush on the border crisis:

Border Patrol officials have been told to deny all media requests for “ride-alongs” with agents along the southern land border; local press officers are instructed to send all information queries, even from local media, to the press office in Washington for approval; and those responsible for cultivating data about the number of migrants in custody have been reminded not to share the information with anyone to prevent leaks, the officials said.

Multiple news organizations, including NBC News, have requested access to or photos from inside overcrowded border processing facilities holding unaccompanied migrant children; they have been denied. The DHS press office released one photo late Tuesday of a mother and child undergoing a health screening inside a border facility, but no wider shots to show conditions or sleeping arrangements.

President Donald Trump allowed the media to tour facilities and join ride-along with agents despite the same media stretching the truth about immigration policy.

A Department of Homeland Security spokesperson insisted Biden’s administration is following policy set in 2014. However, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas promised transparency with the media.

The secretive nature has led to people releasing videos and information. I blogged last Friday about a video showing smugglers bringing over migrants on a boat.

Unfortunately, we do not know for sure when the smuggling took place. But as long as the Biden administration keeps everything hidden we can assume the video is recent.

How about earlier this week when the Chairman of the subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations admitted he had no idea about officials arresting people on the FBI Terrorist list?

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said officials arrested terrorists trying to cross the border. The left and Democrats, including Chairman Ruben Gallego, laughed at McCarthy.

Axios reported a few hours later that border patrol arrested four terrorists on the wanted list since October 1.

Let’s not forget about the 13,000 unaccompanied children held in cages.

Abbott is such a wus. He send sin the MG, not to stop ilegal aliens, any other reason doesn’t matter

It’s time for Abbott and other border Governors to step up and protect our states because we know the WH is trying to destroy us.

It’s big boy pants time, the hell with the WH or the SCOTUS…

This is about America’s survival…period..

The people are behind you!

“Sorry boss, but if the order isn’t in writing, how can I know what the order is?”

    It would be a little awkward to discipline people for not following an order that does not exist.

    I hope to see such disobedience increase in the BP. They’re there to keep down illegal border crossings, not to protect the lawbreakers who do it so as to burden our social services.

    How can the fool Biden possibly control what information is released? One phone call or a tipoff to the media on where to ‘find’ a USB full of data is all it takes!

    Does anyone else think it is curious that Presidementia’s administration welcomes illegal aliens crossing our border, but won’t let members of the American media travel to and observe the same border?

Sounds about right for the Biden regime. Instead of acknowledging the massive problem(s) they have at our southern border the regime attempts to cover it up and pretend there is nothing wrong while thousands of illegal aliens flood into the country non-stop. Disgusting.

Has the media stopped using anonymous sources?

It seemed to be all the rage 5 months ago.

Makes you wonder just how bad it really is if they’re muzzling the agencies involved to control what information gets published by their pet media outlets.

Typical Communist tactic, muzzle opposing opinions and views. Comrade Ming of the Biden Dynasty has spoken and will have your heads on pikes.
