Biden admin restricts border officials from talking to the press amid surge in migrants: Reports

High-ranking members of President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have now told border officials that they can’t talk to the media about the situation at the U.S.–Mexico border, two Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency officials told the Washington Examiner and other news outlets.

Border officials are reportedly being told not to deviate from administration-approved messaging and talking points, and tours and ride-alongs at the border are being denied because of the coronavirus, the CBP officials said, even though they were not restricted during Donald Trump’s tenure as president, when the pandemic was in full force.

What’s more, according to the Examiner, no members of the media have been allowed inside Border Patrol facilities — even though they are reportedly overcrowded and are holding migrants, including children without their parents, for longer than the three days currently allowed before they are released or transferred to other childcare facilities within the U.S.

NBC News also reported that they requested images from inside the migrant facilities, but were denied.

Officials speak out anyway

Despite this unofficial “gag” order, border officials told Fox News on Wednesday that they thought Biden was wrong not to call the situation a crisis.

“A week ago I would not have called this a crisis. Today it meets the definition,” president of the National Border Patrol Council, Brandon Judd, told Fox News. “We are overwhelmed. We do not have the resources to stop the cartels from bringing in illegal aliens, from bringing in drugs, therefore we are in fact in a crisis.”

A senior CBP official speaking anonymously told Fox that Biden knows the border situation is a crisis, even if he refuses to say so.

“The president understands it is a crisis which is why he told migrants ‘don’t come over,'” the official reportedly said.

Biden not traveling to border

Biden said Tuesday that he did not plan to visit the border despite the recent surge, which began when the Democrat was elected and increased exponentially after he rolled back Trump-era orders and agreements that kept many migrants from being released in the U.S. while they waited for asylum or deportation hearings.

Reports indicate migrants entering the U.S. are not even being tested for the coronavirus, and local outlets in places like Brownsville, Texas, that have tested migrants show that large numbers are probably infected and could be spreading COVID-19 in border towns and other places to which they are traveling.

Authorities in border towns do not have the authority to detain illegal immigrants who test positive for COVID-19, so they could be traveling or moving around in the country undetected.

Still, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has only said that the situation is “difficult.” I’d say that’s the understatement of Biden’s presidency so far.

    1. It’s fear. As in, “Don’t tell anybody what a lousy job Biden’s doing. It’s Day 58. We don’t want our voters to know Biden’s lost control of the situation so fast.

      1. Biden’s out of touch with everything. He must resign Immediately. If he won’t he must be impeached! Everyone knows Biden is not capable of being Commander In Chief. Can we stop him in some way, maybe put him in a nursing home? God forbid Kamala taking over when Biden is gone. Kamala is corrupt among other things
        Pelosi needs to be impeached.

        1. Every thing you said is So True!!! Biden is a disaster and so are Kamala and Pelosi. All are a disgrace to our beloved country

      2. it is scary that important info will be and is being withheld from the public.
        The dictatorship is becoming more prevalent each day.

  2. The illegitimate puppet regime now faces a quandry. The plan was to explode illegal immigration and reach the demographic tipping point quickly, dismantling the Constitution and establishing a one-party marxist state as soon as the gringos and the honkies were a deep minority. The brown Third World lumpenproletariat tsunami has hit so fast and so hard, with obvious and inescapable child abuse and rampant crime, that the regular Americans that are to be replaced are noticing. This will make more difficult the other part of the plan, to use COVID among illegals as an excuse for prolonged if not permanent lockdowns that will usher in the Great Reset; while the people are very leery of Gates and Schwab’s combination of fascism and communism, it might be sold to them as “protecting the border”, but a sufficient number of ringers from Africa, the Middle East and Latin America have not yet been admitted. Therefore the Dotard and his entourage must try to keep a lid on things by concealment and dissembling. Once the people see what they are up to, we may hope that this will bring the dictatorship down. Biden delendum est!

  3. It’s time to get them b4 they come after you! If you think that this is bad, ya ain’t seen nuthun yet! They got plans fer you! And it ain’t gonna be pretty. Move the chess pieces in your favor, and stay ahead of them.
    Keep your families together. More eyes to watch, more secure you’ll all be. Keep your powder dry!

  4. Since when does anyone care about what joe thinks. We the people have a right to know what is going on in America.

    1. we need to know what joe boy thinks. our lives are in his and in his minions hands. Keep watch lest you be deceived.

  5. Everyone of the border officials should get together and ignore illegitimate Joe’s order and speak freely while allowing the press in.

  6. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

    1. Marie you are so Very Right What has Happened to the GREAT USof A ?? Biden and Harris Both NEED TO GO NOW before it is to Late They Cheated to Win And are Hurting Every Person in the US The Treason Committe Needs to Step in NOW Take them BOTH out of OFFICE before the US Goes Down

      1. It would be a joke for Biden to converse with Putin because Biden cannot speak unless someone is with him to tell him what to say or if Putin gives him the statements what he will say so Biden s advisors can hopefully prepare him
        Oh how sad our president is such an inadequate president

  7. What are we waiting for? We have seen Joe and Kamala along with Nancy and Chuck have no control on what’s going on. Aren’t they ashamed of their positions? No control of the House and Senate. What more do the citizens of the USA want to give them?

  8. You seem to block vote that I don’t like Pelosi. Her political bull is illegal. So I will tell you the vote I said but you big tech said your usual. Pelosi is trash, she’s nuts

  9. Chinajoe doesn’t really think for himself. He is a shell. We don’t need to hear about the crises at the border, a picture is worth a thousand words from a puppet.

  10. Kind of ironic that the worst President in history, Obama got mad at that poll last year & now? He’s behind even worse stuff in the same vein & Biden is signing it. Biden will sign anything, I think it’s actually blank paper, they fill it in later. People who cannot communicate normally in any way like him should be in a home, not signing things. Like he once said, executive orders are like a Dictator….guess he forgot that noise. All things he signed should be voided due to incompetency. Unconstitutional anyway.

  11. The United States need to take the National Guard who are in Washington, DC wasting our Tax payers money and send them to the border to help keep the immigrants out. This way the Very Qualified National Guard can do what they signed up to do plus I am sure they will be better taken care of. I know President Donald Trump stepped up and helped them out, but the democrats have treated the National Guard terrible.

  12. Come on puppet joe let we the people see and hear what the illegals say about OBAMAS CAGES, we have heard they call them OBAMA CAGES dog kennels, come on man let we the people see whats going on!!!

  13. To late we already know you Biden and your stupid Democrats screwed up royally the boarder is a complete disgrace because you don’t know how to do anything right! IIdots
