According to a Texas Republican congressman, the Democratic Party is relying on the media to whitewash the border crisis. In addition, Vice President Kamala Harris reportedly wants nothing to do with the situation despite getting the job from President Joe Biden.
Harris Doesn’t Want Anything To Do With Border Crisis
Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX) said that Vice President Harris is staying away from the Rio Grande. Jackson said she is avoiding a visit “because the border is a disaster and she doesn’t want to be associated with it, either. From day one, she wants nothing to do with the border.”
Harris, who is Biden’s handpicked official to lead the border issue, has yet to show up at the border where she is supposed to lead efforts. It’s been two months since Biden assigned her the job of overseeing the border situation.
Legacy Media Helped To Suppress Reports
In addition, Jackson said that the Democratic Party is relying on legacy media not to report on the disastrous human rights catastrophe at the border shared by the US with Mexico.
The border crisis is a burning powder keg that continues to undermine President Joe Biden’s standing with voters more than any other issue.
“The Democrats think that we’re going to stop talking about this, because they’re going to get the press to stop talking about it, and that’s really what’s going on right now,” Jackson told Fox News this weekend.
“They’re relying on the mainstream media to not talk about it anymore, and they think if they don’t talk about it, it will go away,” he asserted.
The administration termed the situation a “challenge” instead of the actual crisis that it is. This includes suppressing incriminating photos or videos taken inside US detention facilities.
The administration is also actively avoiding any coverage that highlights the immigration issues at the border.
Biden And Harris Are Doing A Bad Job At The Border
Curiously, mainstream media suddenly decided to stay silent after years of featuring “kids in cages” reports during the Trump administration. With a host of issues such as historic surges in illegal immigration, the media suddenly turned a blind eye.
However, a recent Pew Research Center survey said that 43% of Americans think that the media has not spent much time covering immigration.
More importantly, 68% of Americans think that the Biden-Harris administration is doing a “somewhat bad” or “very bad” job of handling illegal immigration.
Border Crisis Worsening
The month of April saw more illegal immigrants entering the United States for the last 21 years. The New York Post reported that Customs and Border Patrol encountered 178,622 people attempting to enter the United States, during April.
This is a three percent increase from March. April also recorded the most encounters in a single month since April of 2000. During that time, CBP apprehended a record 182,613 illegal immigrants.
“We’re overwhelmed. We have 170,000 that we know crossed the border. March was a record year, as well,” Jackson added.
In addition, he summarized the problems emanating from uncontrolled, illegal immigration. “This is a huge burden for our country economically.
It’s going to be a health care crisis for us, it’s going to be a criminal and terrorism crisis for us. We have record numbers of heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, fentanyl crossing the border,” he remarked.
Watch the Heritage Foundation video saying that the 178,000 Apprehensions at the border in April is more than enough proof that this Is a Border Crisis:
Do you agree that the media is covering up for the Biden administration with regard to the border crisis? Do you think that VP Kamala Harris is far from doing anything to solve the problem?
