Biden: ‘I Don’t Know’ When ‘I Will Commit To Transparency’ On Children At Border

During President Biden’s first formal press conference after 64 days, 2 days away from doubling the previous record of 33 days, it became obvious why he had waited this long to hold a press conference as he struggled to answer questions, including a question on transparency of the treatment of migrant children at border facilities.

“How soon will journalists be able to have access to the facilities?” A reporter asked. “We’ve obviously been allowed to be inside one, but we haven’t seen the facilities in which children are packed together to really give the American people the chance to see that. Will you commit to transparency on this issue?”

“I will commit to transparency as soon as I’m in a position to implement what we’re doing right now,” Biden said, before explaining that he has not visited the border yet because he did not want to get in the way.

Biden’s statement did not explain what his administration is “doing right now” that he is currently not “in a position to implement,” or what would change that would allow him to be in that position.

“Just to be clear, how soon will that be?” The reporter asked Biden.

“I don’t know, to be clear,” Biden responded, refusing to be transparent about when his administration would be transparent.

As the border has been overwhelmed with illegal immigration, exceeding six times the Obama administration’s “crisis level,” journalists have been mostly unable to access border facilities, and the Biden administration has restricted Border Patrol agents from sharing information with the media. Journalists have largely had to rely on leaked documents and information from Border officials that speak under the condition of anonymity so they don’t get caught for violating Biden’s gag order.

The facilities housing children have been described by the New York Times as “akin to jails,” and the children are being held in those facilities for an average of 136 hours, nearly double the legal limit of 72 hours.

Axios reported, “An internal Department of Homeland Security document leaked to Axios shows that 823 unaccompanied migrant children have been held in border patrol custody for over 10 days — more than a fourfold increase over the past week. The maximum amount of time a child is legally supposed to be held in border patrol custody is 72 hours. But as of Saturday, 3,314 unaccompanied children had been in custody longer, with 2,226 for more than five days and 823 for more than 10 days.”

    Laughable! Biden knows he created the Hispanic Hordes invading our Southern border. The Great Unwashed, diseased, bring along their drugs, their gang banging violence, their poverty and lack of any marketing skills because Slow Joe asked them to ‘pour’ into our border and Horselaugh Harris promised them ‘free healthcare’. Now that the train-wreck is happening, he’s banning any news coverage. Transparency? You know there’s none. C’mon man. Quit jammin’ me.

    This administration needs to find the courage to tell Central and South American countries to keep their people from coming to our border. And while this pandemic continues, the border should be CLOSED.

    He doesn’t want to get in the way??? REALLY??? He is suppose to be president of the most powerful country in the world. All he has displayed is weakness to every woeld leader. As president he should have been down at that border two months ago. This is no accident. While being interviewed he has cheat sheets. He made a comment under his breath “What an I doing here”? He’s feeble and cant carry on a coherent conversation. The whole world watched while the DemonRats LITERALLY STOLE this election. Just dont believe your lying eyes. Nothing to see here. Move along. WAKE UP AMERICA before it’s too late. It almoat is. We are losing our 1st & 2nd amendments. Once they are gone the rest of the constitution follows. Goodbye Amwrica Hello CHI-AMERICA
