Wyoming Senator pressured over photos showing migrant detention conditions
Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso said that after revealing photos of tens of thousands of migrant children were leaked on social media, he and other high-ranking officials were subjected to pressure.
According to Barrasso, he was told to delete the pictures of migrant facilities at the US-Mexico border.
“This is both a humanitarian crisis and a national security crisis,” Barrasso said during an interview on Fox News.
Thus, the Joe Biden administration is trying to preserve its reputation by hiding the horrors of unaccompanied minors in cages at the southern border.
“We were told to delete the pictures,” he said. “No one did. You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together.”
“This is what the Biden administration is trying to hide from the American public,” Barrasso added.
In addition to overcrowding, the border crisis is exacerbated by the uncontrolled spread of Covid-19. According to Senator, neither children nor adults are tested upon arrival at the detention centers.
No one knows for certain what strain of the virus is raging on the US-Mexico border. Some children and adult migrants do tests after they are admitted to the United States. There is no question of vaccination at all.
