Americans who are fair-minded and not hooked on hopeless left-wing Democratic groupthink know that our border is out of control again.
They also know it is that way because our mind-addled president signed every executive order undoing Donald Trump’s strict border enforcement policies his babysitters set down in front of him his first few days in office.
But Americans for the most part aren’t aware of the extent of the crisis.
And there’s a reason for that. The media hasn’t been allowed to cover the crisis.
Democrats won’t let them. In fact, some Democrats don’t even think the media has a right to cover the story.
Not even kidding.
The Epoch Times reports:
Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) said that members of the press should not be granted access to federal facilities near the Southern Border that house unaccompanied minors who entered the United States illegally.
'I don't necessarily think that it's appropriate for journalists to be inside centers that are not permanent places for children,' Sanchez said when she was asked during a CNN interview about what some have said is the White House's lack of transparency surrounding Customs and Border Protection activity.
She initially replied that former President Donald Trump previously denied members of Congress access to border housing facilities.
'Because of COVID protocols, you can't fill them to capacity, you have to have social distancing,' Sanchez added. 'They are trying to process children as quickly as they can, and, no, these detention facilities at the border were not meant for children. Children are meant to be in licensed facilities.'
But due to COVID-19 requirements and other provisions, officials are 'doing the best that they can,' she said.
First of all, her claim about Trump not allowing members of Congress to access border housing facilities is not the same as Trump (or a lawmaker) banning the media from covering the story.
And here’s what’s amazing: The media doesn’t see anything wrong with this.
Imagine if Trump were still in office and the border was being inundated and a Republican lawmaker said ‘the media can’t be here.’
Media types would have lost their minds!
If readers needed yet another reason to prove that the ‘mainstream media’ is nothing more than the propaganda division of the Democratic party, this should do it.
