GOP Senator: Biden Admin Quietly Ordered Us To ‘Delete The Pictures’ From Border Visit

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, a Republican, said the Biden administration told him and his colleagues to delete photos they took while visiting the southern border, according to The Western Journal.

Barrasso detailed what officials allegedly told him and other lawmakers while touring the border on March 26.

“You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together,” he said.

“We were told to delete the pictures. No one did.”

“They are crammed in like sardines, and this is what the Biden administration is trying to hide from the American public, which is why we took video and the Biden administration tried to stop us,” Barrasso said.

In communities, with large groups, there is a coronavirus positivity rate of around 6 percent, according to sources.

In these detention facilities, the positivity rate is as high as 10 percent in some facilities.

Lawmakers who went to the border with Barrasso and journalists have been fighting to get increased access to the border to find out what is truly happening.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made a surprising suggestion that the administration may resume construction on the border wall, which former President Donald Trump touted as a way to deter illegal immigration.

“[President Biden] has communicated quite clearly his decision that the emergency that triggered the devotion of DOD funds to the construction of the border wall is ended,” Mayorkas said, according to The Washington Times.

“But that leaves room to make decisions as the administration, as part of the administration, in particular areas of the wall that need renovation, particular projects that need to be finished.”

The administration seems to be aware they made a mistake by reversing Trump’s border policies but do not seem eager to fully own up to it.

If the administration did attempt to censor Barrasso and other Senate Republicans, you could say that they were only admitting their defeat.

Americans have the right to be informed about what is happening at the border, and the administration would rather be a gatekeeper to avoid a public relations disaster than a gateway to discovering new solutions.
