But we don’t have a border crisis…
We all knew why President Joe Biden’s administration did not want media around the border or talking to agents. But now he can no longer deny it.
Axios published photos of an overcrowded border patrol tent in Donna, TX. Rep. Henry Cueller (D-TX) provided the photos to “raise awareness about the situation” after someone gave them to him over the weekend.
“Exclusive photos from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection temporary overflow facility in Donna, Texas, reveal the crowded, makeshift conditions at the border as the government's longer-term child shelters and family detention centers fill up.”https://t.co/WJnkV4zBFX pic.twitter.com/7XqagoPwak

The tent has eight “pods.” A single one can hold 260 people.
“I have said repeatedly from the very outset a Border Patrol station is no place for a child,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told CNN on Sunday. “That is why we are working around the clock to move these children out of the Border Patrol facilities into the care and custody of the Department of Health and Human Services that shelters them.”
On MSNBC, he compared the administration’s actions to those of the Trump administration,”We are not expelling children, girls, 5, 7, 9 years old back into the desert of Mexico, back into the hands of traffickers.”
Project Veritas has a video taken outside of the same facility. A source also gave them photos. I wonder if it is the same source who gave Cueller his photos:
“These photos were taken within the last few days. There are eight pods with eight cells each in the facility. At any given moment there are an average of 3,000 people in custody here,” the source said.
“They [illegal immigrants] are separated by age or physical size depending on room. Fifty were COVID positive in these cells over the last few days. There have been multiple sexual assaults, normal assaults and daily medical emergencies,” they said.
James O’Keefe and his team took the video outside of the facility before officials asked him to leave. One person told them they were on “private property” so all “journalists needed to keep their distance.”
Project Veritas’s source within the Department of Homeland Security shared a memo, which warned everyone of a caravan headed to the border. The officials promised “CBP personnel in the region will work closely with and maintain constant communication with CBP Partners including ICE, as well as local security and immigration agencies.”
