Border Patrol union president slams media for treating Biden with kid gloves

While it might have been expected that the mainstream media would not be as tough on President Joe Biden as they were on his predecessor, the current border crisis might be a test of how much journalists are willing to compromise on their putative principles.

Although the press denounced former President Donald Trump for allegedly keeping “kids in cages,” the public outcry is substantially quieter in response to similar moves by the Biden administration, and at least one immigration official is sounding the alarm.

“Kids in cages once again”

During a recent Fox News Channel interview, Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, ripped the media’s mild response to the current administration.

As one example, the Washington Post attracted criticism earlier this year for a report that omitted references to “cages” in describing the facilities in which migrant children are being detained under Biden’s leadership.

The situation has only continued to deteriorate since then as photos and other evidence reveal facilities stretched far beyond their capacity and conditions that Democrats roundly denounced when Trump was in the White House.

Biden has faced some level of backlash from the media, though the toughest criticism has come from the GOP — including Trump himself.

For his part, Judd called out the apparent hypocrisy during his on-air conversation with Neil Cavuto, declaring: “Frankly, Neil, it’s kids in cages once again.”

“Biden re-introduced a magnet”

According to Fox, the union leader said that he is “wondering where the liberal media is and where is the outrage right now about holding the children in the same facilities that the last administration and even going back to the Obama administration was holding them in.”

He went on to criticize Biden for attempting to place the blame on Trump, noting that Mexico’s president is holding the current U.S. administration responsible.

“President Biden re-introduced a magnet that the last administration was able to get rid of,” Judd said, as Fox reported.

Not only has the president re-opened detention facilities, but he is also limiting or denying reporters access. During his first solo press conference on Thursday, he dismissed questions on the matter, saying that he “doesn’t know” when the situation on the border will change.

For a president who touted his promise of “transparency” with the media, he appears unable to even clear the low bar set by the often obsequious press.

  3. Biden/Harris didn’t win an election they were installed by the Democrat’s.
    The only thing the Democrat’s can actually FIX are elections every thing else they DESTROY.

  4. 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. I’m sorry to say that I agree with you. Where did they go to school? It surely can’t be in America??? They are totally off the face of this earth on everything they report. False lies for how many years. What happened to those wonderful guys who used to report the new with completely unbiased views on everything. They let you make up your own minds—didn’t try to brain-wash you!!!

    2. Right !!! And they have conveniently forgotten that the “cages” were started during the Bush administration, and greatly expanded during Obama’s show.

  5. The, “Free Press” is no longer, free, it is the, “Controlled Press!” The majority are hired by the Left and report as they are told to report!

  6. I absolutely agree with Maria. All of us should get busy now. Contacting those who work for us.
    Also BIDEN-HARRIS have broken more than one Federal Law. They should be Impeached Immediately and Removed from our White House and Capitol Immediately. These Deranged Swamp Creatures are extremely Dangerous for America and it’s People. They must be Stopped and Removed along with Pelosi and Schumer.

  7. We should peacefully protest the lying media until they start telling the truth and all the news not just what they want to tell. CNN will be the first to give in. They are all a pos.
