(PoliticalLooukout.com)- A Department of Homeland Security source revealed this week that President Joe Biden is purposely withholding information about the crisis on the southern border of the United States, according to a report from Breitbart.
The conservative news outlet revealed how a senior-level law enforcement source from the department told Texas reporters that the agency received verbal orders that limited their ability to publicly speak about the surge of illegal aliens crossing the southern border.
The source, who is said to have knowledge of the new restrictions, only gave the interview under the condition of anonymity, as new orders from the White House means officials from DHS can no longer speak about the issue.
“The situation with media relations now is night and day compared to the last administration,” the official told the outlet. “We have been advised not to speak on immigration issues at the border and to rely on DHS’s Office of Public Affairs and the White House Press Office to handle messaging.”
Note the use of the word “messaging.” That means the White House wants to control the way in which the people learn about the crisis, whether that’s minimizing the crimes being committed and the surging number of illegal crossings, or just not talking about it at all.
The new order affects all senior law enforcement officials in Homeland Security and has no specific expiration date, meaning government workers have been effectively silenced over the issue of illegal immigrants and criminals pouring over the southern border.
And even Democrats are noticing.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat from Texas, told Fox News recently that the numbers of people that are being released on the border are being “purposely” withheld by the Biden administration.
“I now know that they’re bringing people from McAllen over to Laredo, processing them in Laredo, and they’re going to release them in my community,” he said.
“I’ve seen this before, don’t let the local communities know what you’re doing, where they’re starting to bring people in from the valley, process them in Laredo, release them at a bus station. And, again, I’ve seen this before in the past,” he added.
When even Democrats are picking up on the scale of the problem, you know it’s got to be bad. That’s why they don’t want you to know about it.
The DHS source also said that the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, was attempting to prevent images of overcrowded migrant facilities from circulating in the media.
And President Biden really doesn’t want you to know that he’s increasing the number of “cages” that he criticized Trump for using during his administration…
