How bad are things at the border? How much of the illegal immigrant surge is blowing right past the southern states and spreading across the nation’s interior? How many of them have entered the United States without being tested for Covid-19? These are all valid questions, to which we are receiving zero answers from the Biden administration.
In fact, they’re barring their own employees from talking to the press at all. According to Breitbart:
A senior-level law enforcement source in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) told Breitbart Texas they received verbal orders from within the agency limiting their ability to speak freely about the growing crisis along the border.
The official with knowledge of the restrictions spoke under the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak on the matter. “The situation with media relations now is night and day compared to the last administration, The official said. “We have been advised not to speak on immigration issues at the border and to rely on DHS’s Office of Public Affairs and the Whitehouse Press Office to handle messaging.”
The verbal order applies to senior law enforcement leaders within DHS and has no formal expiration date. It comes as the administration is struggling to manage the growing crisis caused by changes in border security and immigration policies leading to a spike in illegal crossings at the border.
As local communities along the border continue to grapple with the release of migrants into their communities, the administration is facing criticism even amongst their own ranks, Breitbart reported.
U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said in a recent interview on the Fox News Channel, “I can tell you this, those numbers of people that are being released, they’re purposely withholding that information.”
Let’s be perfectly clear about this. If the numbers at the border were anywhere near sane, the administration would not be hiding them. In fact, they’d be broadcasting them as a way of virtue signaling to a radical progressive Democratic base that has been critical of the early days under Joe Biden. He needs “good” news about how radical he is after bombing Syria, putting illegal immigrant children in cages, failing in his promise to deliver $2000 relief checks, doing nothing on gun control, and failing miserably on every progressive promise he made during the campaign.
The fact that they’re actively and aggressively hiding the numbers at the border should absolutely terrify any American who values our sovereignty. It’s an open-borders-advocate’s dream come true as the floodgates pour in unprecedented numbers of illegal immigrants. Again, we know the numbers have to be astounding because if they weren’t we’d know them. This type of information is readily available and estimates can be delivered in real-time. Instead, we’re faced with receiving zero updates whatsoever.
There are many reasons Democrats would want the borders to be open, but this situation appears to be one that has already gotten out of hand. Whether the administration was too ignorant to realize the ramifications of their actions or they simply didn’t care, it will be the American people, including legal immigrants, who are hurt most by this.
The economic turmoil caused by Covid-19 lockdowns has decimated this nation, but those concerns may be secondary to the bigger threat at the border. How bad must it be for the White House to order complete radio silence on the issue?
