Psaki says Biden will allow reporters into migrant detention facilities

After weeks of stalling, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration will begin allowing reporters into migrant detention facilities, The Hill reported.

Psaki announced the change during an appearance over the weekend on Fox News Sunday with host Chris Wallace.

“We are committed to allowing cameras into Border Patrol facilities,” she told Wallace, and denied his claim that the Biden administration has been “less transparent” than its predecessor.

Biden admin blames COVID

However, Psaki continued to cite the coronavirus as the supposed reason for why media access to immigration holding facilities had to be restricted.

“We want to provide access into the Border Patrol facilities,” she claimed. “We are mindful that we are in the middle of the pandemic, we want to keep the kids safe, we want to keep the staff safe.”

Despite her contentions, The Epoch Times noted that the Biden administration has thus far only allowed a single reporter and camera person into a Texas center.

One group of individuals who have seen the inside an immigration facility is a delegation of Republican senators who went to the border last week.

The 19 Republican senators who made the trip tweeted out images showing migrants, including children, sleeping on the floor in extremely crowded conditions.

“These are the pictures the Biden administration doesn’t want the American people to see,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) declared. “This is why they won’t allow the press.”

The Republican lawmaker explained that the photographs were taken at a facility in Donna, Texas, and called the situation “a humanitarian crisis.”

Texas Sen. John Cornyn (R), who helped lead the trip with Cruz, said the problem at the border comes directly from Washington. “The Border Patrol and Health and Human Services and the nongovernmental organizations that are struggling to deal with this flood of humanity tell us they cannot get ahead of this without policy changes in Washington, D.C.,” Cornyn said.

    1. I hate to be the one that tells you this, You can’t impeach Biden because Nancy has to bring it to the floor for a vote. Impeachment papers have been given to Nancy on the first day of this Congress.

  4. Yel after it has turned into a real mess, and they don’t have a clue how to fix this mess they created.

  5. Doubtless President Harris and co. will concoct some mind boggling excuse or other like “well, the children are crowded together to stay warm because there is not enough money to pay for heating oil due to revenue stockpiling for more important programs like reparations payments” , or “well, the children are crowded so close together because we won’t have to pay a janitor to periodically sweep the floors, that way the money can be used for more important programs like reparations payments. We’ll still have to raise more taxes, though”. And, except for maybe Ted Cruz and a very few others, what will the gutless cowards of the GOP say? Nothing.

  6. Biden and his minons have no one but themselves to blame for this mess. Using covid as the excuse for not wanting the press to see what’s really going on is rich,considering that this administration did nothing to stop this influx yet restrictions still apply in most places but hey,just tell the whole world to Come On In!!God help and protect us from the Biden administration!!

  7. The left just do NOT know how to man up, when it comes to rake responsebility for something they created, umledd it is good………..

  8. They are stalling for time! The crooks are devious and wish to try to undermine the will of this land with their power and greed! Keep digging the hole is getting deeper! Plus they will need a big one to fit them all in!

  9. Biden is destroying our great country.
    Biden, Kamela Harris and Pelosi must be Impeached immediately!!! Biden is ignorant as these 2 people are also
    If they were intelligent our country wouldn’t be going into disaster. We were founded on greatness and we are now being destroyed because of Biden.
