Report: Trump Admin Continues ‘Catch and Release’ Program At Border

Published

on

The Trump administration is reportedly carrying on the Obama administration’s controversial “Catch and Release” program involving illegal border-crossers.

This development, coupled with the administration’s so-far inability to build the border wall, spells more trouble for the president with his base.

“Border Patrol Agent Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), spoke with Breitbart Texas on Trump’s quiet continuation of Obama’s catch and release. He stated, “Obama’s catch and release is definitely continuing and our government is releasing illegal aliens into U.S. communities. The steps taken for such releases have slightly changed and the numbers are not as high, but it is still occurring. Under Trump, ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is holding more illegal aliens than what they did under Obama, but make no mistake, ICE is still releasing a good number of illegal aliens into U.S. communities. Americans need to know this.”

Though Trump ordered catch-and-release to end and despite claims from the Justice Department that the protocol is now over, the data show that it simply has not ended. One news site touted the program as over yet further reading in the same article shows it was simply reduced a bit. That news site, The Daily Caller, wrote:

Data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University reveals that it is indeed a “new era.” Records obtained by the group show that 61 percent of immigrants given NTAs under Trump were detained, compared to 27 percent detained under Obama. These are for cases as of the end of March, as immigrants given NTAs under Obama have yet to show up in court.”

Biden’s White House Considering Banning Conservative Media from Press Briefings

Briefings could be restricted to mainstream media?

Published

on

President Joe Biden’s press team may move to restrict the briefings held at the White House to liberal mainstream media outlets, if language from the new President’s deputy press secretary if more than just talk.

Organizations or individuals who traffic in conspiracy theories, propaganda and lies to spread disinformation will not be tolerated,” TJ Ducklo, Biden’s deputy press secretary, said in a statement to Politico, “and we’ll work with the WHCA to decide how to handle those instances moving forward.

Given liberal media figures’ extremely wide-ranging definition of “disinformation,” it appears possible to likely that any journalist or reporter who is critical of Biden policies “will not be tolerated” at the White House.

President Trump had accredited journalists from outlets such as Breitbart and One America News Network during his time in office, and Ducklo’s language suggests the press credentials of such organizations may be revoked. Biden himself has chafed over questions regarding his son’s corrupt foreign business dealings, calling Fox News’ Peter Doocy a “one horse pony” for daring to ask about an ongoing Department of Justice investigation into Hunter Biden.

The first press briefing of the Biden administration was attended by fourteen mainstream media employees, in a limited-capacity briefing spurred by the coronavirus pandemic. Room service journalists questioned White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the color scheme of Air Force One and Biden’s mood on Inauguration Day.

Former Trump administration Press Secretary Sean Spicer described the ‘easy mode’ briefing as “an embarrassment.” Spicer is currently seeking press credentials to attend White House briefings, along with Fox host Eric Bolling.

Expect the remaining “journalists” present for White House press briefings to ask vital questions about dogs, chocolate chip ice cream, and softball slam dunks for the Biden administration.
