Report: Biden administration places ‘gag order’ on border officials to cover up growing crisis

The escalating surge of migrants at the southern border shows no signs of abating, and after initially denying the severity of this emerging crisis, the Biden administration is now attempting to block the release of anything but carefully curated information about the true situation on the ground, according to new reports.

NBC News has revealed that Border Patrol agents and sector chiefs are now being restricted in terms of what they may share with the media about the migrant influx and its resulting strain on resources in what some officials characterize as an unofficial “gag order.”

According to four current and two former officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB), staffers have been instructed to refer media inquiries, including those from local reporters, to agency representatives in Washington and told to decline requests for “ride alongs”with agents.

The admonitions against communicating information beyond what had been approved by press officials in D.C. were reportedly not made in writing, but were transmitted to officials verbally, according to the Washington Examiner.

These limitations come amid requests from news organizations and advocates for photos of or access to border processing facilities reported to be significantly overtaxed and overcrowded.

Though the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a single image earlier this week of a health screening being given to a mother and child within a detention facility, there were no other images depicting general conditions or living accommodations, according to NBC News.

CBS News reported that one lawyer who traveled to interview migrant children detained at the border in Texas described the deteriorating conditions there by stating that children have reported going hungry, having only limited access to showers, and also that “some of the boys said said that conditions were so overcrowded that they had to take turns sleeping on the floor.”

With DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas now predicting that the current migrant surge is likely to shatter a 20-year record and place a continuing burden on already-strapped resources, Republicans in Congress are renewing earlier calls for hearings and accountability from the administration, as Fox News noted.

In a letter to Sen. Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) last week, Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri deemed the border situation “a full-blown emergency and demanded the administration “provide an explanation to Congress and to the American people.” In light of what now amounts to forced silence on those in the trenches, however, that appears increasingly less likely to occur.

I just don’t understand understand it.. We have Immigration LAWS so how is it that this Administration can simply tell our Border Patrol Agents and ICE not to enforce and follow the Law?? I felt that it was Congress who made, change Laws and then the Senate would put in their 2 cents THEN it goes to the Presidents desk. It’s like during the last summers riots, looting and destruction of property and the Mayors tell their Police to STAND DOWN.. I guess a Mayor can tell the Police NOT to respond to any calls where the suspect is Black or not to respond to any Bank robberies, rapes, domestic violence, child abuse and so on. THE LAW IS THE LAW, PERIOD!!!

Americans are going to have to let Biden’s administration know that we have had enough. Protests are going to have to happen and Americans are going to have to unite or we are headed for Communism. This administration is acting as dictators to see how much abuse Americans will take. As Einstein said “it won’t be the evil that destroys the world, it will be those that stand back and watch, and do nothing”.

Mark, some good lawyer needs to march into federal court and file a detailed FOIA (freedom of information act) concerning all the border activities biden is doing. Maybe some drones flying over the detention facilities may yield something…. 85 million votes….a lot of those probably are “printing press” contrived mail in specials….

BRAIN DEAD, PUPPET, ILLEGITIMATE BIDEN AND HIS CRIMINAL CARTEL TEAM & ALL THE DEMORATS SHOULD ALL BE SENTENCED TO JAIL FOR DESTROYING GOD’S GREATEST COUNTRY THE USA.

IT WAS A RIGGED ELECTION BY THE DEMORATS & THEIR HIGH TECH BILLIONAIRE BACKERS, GEORGE SORUS & HIS BILLIONAIRE COMMUNIST BUDDIES.

I HOPE ALL THE ANTI-AMERICANS THAT VOTED FOR BRAIN DEAD BIDEN ARE NOW FINALLY WAKING UP TO WHAT’S HAPPENING IN AMERICA AND WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO THEIR CHILDREN & GRANDCHILDENS FUTURE.

OUR GREAT MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN HAVE FOUGHT AND DIED FOR OUR FREEDOM AND THE SAFETY OF EVERY AMERICAN, WHICH WE CAN NEVER THANK THEM ENOUGH. GOD BLESS THEM ALL.

exactly. Biden does not know what he is signing. Did anyone notice when there was that stack of ex. orders on his desk, he just picked them up and signed it. He has no idea what he is doing. He would sign his own resignation if it was given to him with others. If there was no fraud in the elections, why is there cases in different states being filed and court in session.

Actually, 318,000 died of COVID during Trump’s Presidency. 218,000 have died on Biden’s watch. It’s important to remember that DISEASE killed these people, not the Presidents.
Trump had the border in near control. Biden opened it wide.

This is what you get when you put FOOLS in charge of things. It doesn’t matter what they do because they are always screwing things up and then deny, distract and blame others for their actions and polices. There is not one company that would ever be able to stay in business if it were run like the government. We need to running the government like a company. Lean, mean and profitable and not by taking advantage of the tax payors but by having policies that protect the tax payers from over reach and abusive politicians. We need to stop the stealing, stop the lying and stop wasting tax payers dollars. Start supporting our laws and our Constitutional rights and do what is best for America. If they insist on cancelling me from society then they can also stop taking my money / taxes to pay their salaries so they can abuse me and waste my taxes. We either need term limits or the right to remove them just like a company does. Personally, I would like to see their salaries tied to their performance and how well they do at supporting our Constitutional rights with their policies. God Bless America!

Well, guess what, it may not happen right now, but we are free Americans and we will defeat you and your sick, corrupt and Evil, unGodly plans.

I’m no political student in any manner but it was completely clear that Biden was going to be nothing more than a puppet. I wasn’t thinking it would be our Veep, thought of either Obama or Pelosi/Schumer or even a Clinton, feeling he isn’t up for the job. He’s not only weak but something’s lacking in him or he’s not well. He was all about MINDLESSLY destroying what Trump did even when of value. I see 4 years of dark days ahead for our nation, constituents under mind/actions control under the DEMS!

Life changes…and here we are with Major Changes to our Country etc. with a Weak Leader – one who will wreck our democracy – Too bad….Pres. Trump might not have been Mr. Perfect Personality-wise but HE was a business man who led our country like a business – he met all his promises – and we were doing well until China interfered….THEY are our perpetrators….and now….with Mr. “Nice-guy Biden, cow-towing to their every wish, we are at ebb’s tide.

I am very unhappy after more than four years of trying to explain to people what is coming to America and what communism is. People still don’t understand that the communists in WH will not follow the U.S. Constitution. They follow the rules of their ideology – Marxism, which also includes elections! A fraudulent voting system is not the only obstacle why people of China suffer under one political party for 74 years, Russians 70 years and Eastern Europeans 40 years before communism was defeated. I heard today on a top conservative broadcast advice from a Governor: “Don’t give up and go vote.” Meanwhile, watch your country and human spirit being destroyed by poverty,  punishment, and senseless dictatorship. He either didn’t have the guts to say it or he doesn’t know what communism is.

We now know Biden did not win the election. What is the government going to do about it? Allow a crooked Democrat remain in office? I don’t think so. We need to replace him with the true winner, Donald J. Trump. Not to mention, Biden is now facing a charge(?) of Abuse of Power. He’s been covering up the actual crisis at the border. Get Rid of Biden and bring back Trump. That’s the person We The People legally voted into office for 2021. Biden will destroy our country.
