Growing Media Coverage of Biden’s Border Crisis Spotlights His Failed Policies and Derails his Agenda

Just two months into his presidency Joe Biden has quickly created a massive border crisis that highlights the failure of his radical immigration policies and derails his ‘progressive’ agenda. This according to a growing list of establishment news media such as ABC News starting to break the Biden ‘gag rule’ on reporting on the border crisis.

Apparently blindsided by the predictable results of his rapid reversal of President Trump’s policies, Team Biden struggles to describe the surge of illegal migrants at the border, and emergency measures to relocate and house thousands of unaccompanied migrant children, as anything but a ‘crisis.’

Watch White House press secretary Jen Psaki dissemble and blame the Border patrol and everyone else but the Biden administration for the sudden surge created by Team Biden.

Until recently the majority media has been ignoring the border crisis, as the Biden administration, while promising “transparency,” has mostly kept the news media away from packed facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border. And in contrast with both the Trump and Obama administrations, Team Biden has not allowed journalists to accompany U.S. Border Patrol officers on the job, thus preventing members of the media from speaking with migrants as they are taken into custody.

However, things appear to be changing. As Axios reported today, “nearly all (46) of the top 50 stories about the situation at the border in the last two weeks have come from conservative media.” But at same time, in “the past few weeks, the media has increased its coverage of immigration significantly, in some cases outpacing coverage of vaccines.”

Axios adds that “mentions of articles discussing immigration among 100 of the most popular U.S. news sites surpassed mentions of articles discussing the vaccines.”

It appears that Psaki’s Orwellian double-speak and projection isn’t working as more mainstream news media are calling it a real crisis – at least for Biden. ABC News reported:

When President Joe Biden entered office, he listed what he called “four historic crises:” the coronavirus pandemic, the economy, a reckoning on race and climate change.

Not among them was a predicament that, two months into his presidency, now poses a potent political threat: the growing number of migrants and unaccompanied children showing up on the southern border and filling federal facilities many times over their capacity.

ABC News added that: “the White House has over the past month increasingly found itself on the defensive as it balances its message that the border is “closed” with its stated desire to find safe places for the minors who keep crossing the border unaccompanied by their parents.” 

But the idea that the Biden White House message really is that the border is “closed,” flies in the face of all available evidence, including swarms of illegal migrants at the border wearing “Biden-let us in t-shirts.”

Even ABC News notes the contradiction when continuing by reporting that: “A Brazilian man who traveled with his wife and young children to Mexico before crossing the U.S. border told ABC News that he ‘definitely’ would not have tried to come when Trump was president and “basically” came now because Biden had taken office.

Like these illegal migrants, most Americans know where the fault lies, and who is not being honest about the border crisis. And it isn’t the Border Patrol or former President Trump.

Very true, you have  Jen Psaki who is always so unprepared was wondering if all that cheap hair dye has effected her brain. I seriously have don’t think I have ever seen a more unprofessional looking group of people that’s before they open their mouths and prove their stupidity. Psaki looks like she escaped from the circus but kept the hair color, democrats are nothing but scum.

ISN’T IT TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

They should take all the people they are busing and releasing. They should bus to Washington and leave them there.

Any Eastern state or city. Note they drop them off in border or mid-America communities and expect those communities to take care of them without any help. That is an additional unauthorized tax on those citizens plus it is leading to an increase in the Covid virus, increases that Democrats are claiming are happening because those communities failed to keep their draconian restrictions in place.
