Joe Biden has created a crisis on the southern border with his radical policies.
And he is unwilling to do anything to fix it.
A top Republican issued a challenge to Joe Biden that made him shake like a leaf.
Thousands of children who were brought into America illegally are currently in custody and President Joe Biden is encouraging parents to send their children over the border.
“I hope they don’t undertake that perilous journey, but if they do, we will not expel that young child. We will care for that young child and unite that young child with a responsible parent.” Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said publicly.
Yet while Biden has pretended to be caring, he hasn’t been willing to let journalists in to see the real overcrowded jail-like conditions that the children are being housed in.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote a letter to Biden challenging him to let the media in to the facilities so that America could see “your administration’s failures.”
“This past Thursday and Friday, eighteen of my Senate colleagues and I visited the border and witnessed firsthand the staggering public health and humanitarian crisis caused by your policies,” Cruz wrote. “We understand the heartbreaking tragedy unfolding at the border because we were there. We saw it. But the American people are unable to see it because you remain intent on keeping the media from shining a light on your administration’s failures.”
On Sunday, Cruz showed a video of a woman who he alleged is a “senior advisor” attempting to block him from taking photos of migrants.
“They could not show the American people what it looks like when a tent city built to house 250 children under COVID restrictions instead houses 4,200,” Cruz wrote. “They could not show the American people cages after cages of little boys lying side-by-side, of little girls lying side-by-side, covered with reflective emergency blankets with virtually no space between them. They could not see the playpen of infants and toddlers brought here by human traffickers and then left alone. They could not see the row of children who, having just been crammed into the crowded cages, were now testing positive for COVID-19.”
Cruz commented that the journalists travelling with the lawmakers were not allowed in.
“The reporters and the cameras could not see any of this because you, President Biden, prevented it. I sent you a letter last week urging you to allow us to bring media with us,” Cruz said. “Not only did you refuse, you actively worked to prevent the American public from seeing what we saw. When I took pictures to show the American people the conditions at the Donna facility (after blurring all faces to protect the privacy of the individuals held there), a political appointee sent by your administration jumped in front of my camera to try to stop me from doing my job. She threatened another senator that if he did not delete his pictures, the entire delegation would be kicked out and prevented from conducting our constitutional oversight role.”
“This is outrageous,” the letter said. “The Trump administration allowed media into DHS facilities. So did the Obama administration, the Bush administration, and the Clinton administration. But you want to hide what is going on.”
Cruz advised Biden to “stop denying reality” and to “confront the consequences of your policies.”
