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

Published

on

Joe Biden

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

Texas City Considering State Of Emergency Due To Border Crisis

Border crisis

The border city of El Paso, Texas, is considering declaring a state of emergency over the worsening border crisis, city officials announced Wednesday.

“We are extremely grateful to all our partners including the NGOs, the County, State and Federal leaders who understand the extraordinary collaborative lift that is required,” Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said in a statement.

Just days before the announcement, nearly 100 illegal immigrants were released into downtown El Paso as border facilities reached capacity.

“The migrants were released before dawn, and some quickly made plans to travel on to other cities, while others lingered on the streets of El Paso or at the airport — too broke to leave or book a hotel,” the New York Post reported.

The news comes as border officials brace for a further surge in illegal immigration as a result of President Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy. According to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News, the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution. Based on these projections the SBCC is currently planning for 6,000, 12,000 (high) and 18,000 (very high) encounters per day.”

The border is already undergoing the highest levels of illegal immigration on record. Last month, “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin announced on Twitter.

Border Patrol Union Leader Warns Biden Ending Title 42 Will Give ‘Control To The Cartels’

Biden Confused

On Wednesday, a union leader representing U.S. Border Patrol agents warned that the Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42 next week will give the cartels full control of the border.

“That we just don’t have anybody in the field, that we just can’t patrol the border. When you look right now, we already start our shifts with 50% of our resources not even performing enforcement activities. They’re in administrative duties,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

“Once this explodes, we’re going to have nearly 100% of our people doing administrative duties rather than enforcement duties. That’s going to give complete control to the cartels. That’s a scary situation to be in,” he added.

Judd’s comments come as “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin.

If the Biden administration successfully ends Title 42 on May 23, the number of migrants encountered at the southern border in a month is expected to surge to over 500,000, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News. The document warns that the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution.
