The Biden folks are trying to control the media coverage about what’s happening at the border.
But they’re doing a ham-handed job of it, as seems to be their fashion.
The CBP is still talking because they see what’s happening and they want the public to know the bad things that are going on. Even President Donald Trump is now calling out the Biden folks for the “cover-up” and the gagging of the media.
Despite the effort by the Biden folks, the media is still managing to get some of the stories out there.
One of the many lies that the Biden folks have been putting out there, notably from DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, is that somehow all this was Trump’s fault. President Donald Trump blew that up in a statement where he called out the Biden team’s bad policies that caused all this, saying it was a “national disgrace.”
ABC’s Martha Raddatz also put paid to that claim with interviews that she did with the migrants that were coming. As she explained, the reason they were coming now was because, they said, they believed of Biden’s policies they would be welcome. One mother explained because she understood “Biden promised we could cross with minors.” She and her child were sent back.

A man who just came in with his wife and three children explained to Raddatz in Arizona how he had traveled from Brazil to Mexico in the hopes of getting into the U.S. in part because of Biden, that he wouldn’t have even tried under Trump.

“Would you have tried to do this when Donald Trump was president?” Raddatz asks the man in a clip aired Sunday and tweeted by Steve Guest, a special advisor to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
“Definitely not,” replies the migrant, who asked that his face not be shown.
“Did you come here because Joe Biden was elected president?” Raddatz asks.
“Basically,” he says.
Whoops, guess Mayorkas and Biden can’t get to every illegal alien and get them on the Democratic daily talking points.
Raddatz also queried about their lack of transparency and made the great point: wouldn’t it have been better to have a plan in place before you did away with everything the Trump folks had done to keep control of the border? Mayorkas’ response? “We are executing the plan we have.” So let’s take them at their word. This is all their plan.
