Biden Administration Officials Urged Republican Senators to Delete Pictures of Border Visit
In a recent appearance on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo”, Wyoming Senator John Barrasso revealed that Biden administration officials begged a group of senators who were present at the Southern Border to “delete the pictures.”
Barrasso recounted that he and 18 other Republican senators went down to the border at the end of March to get an idea of the immigration crisis taking place down there. Upon arriving at the border, the senators were instructed “to delete the pictures,” but none ended up doing so.
“We were told to delete the pictures. No one did. You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together,” Barrasso said in the interview.
Shakhzod Yuldoshboev of the Daily Caller noted that Barrasso was concerned about the conditions of the unaccompanied minors who were illegally smuggled into the US were being kept in. “They are crammed in like sardines,” Barrasso observed on the program.
“This is what the Biden administration is trying to hide from the American public. Which is why we took video, and the Biden administration tried to stop us,” he continued.
Yuldoshboev also highlighted that Barrasso accused the Biden administration of censoring coverage of the border crisis in a tweet late last month.
“On our visit to the border, we saw firsthand the overwhelming challenges & humanitarian crisis our border agents are up against as a result of the Biden admin’s policies. Time for @JoeBiden to stop censoring & allow media in so Americans can see what a tragedy this really is,” the Wyoming Senator tweeted.
Barrasso is saying the quiet part out loud; Biden & Co. don’t want the American public to get an idea of how dysfunctional the current administration’s immigration policies are.
Securing a nation’s border is a fundamental priority for any polity to establish sovereignty, be respected on the world stage and also foster social stability at home. A nation that cannot do so, is defective in nature and will invite all sorts of chaos.
America First nationalists have every reason to make a lot of noise about the current border crisis and leverage the dangers it presents as a campaign rallying cry. America needs a strong border if it wants political stability in the long-term.
