It’s much too much for President Biden to go. He will be headed to Camp David this weekend for a short hike and some bird watching.
But Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the southern border Friday with some senators to see once and for all if this is a crisis or not!
But the press is not allowed. You know, because of Covid.
The military lets the press cover wars, but reporters cannot come see administration detention centers for children on the border because of Covid.
According to Fox News.
Portman, R-Ohio, told Fox News about the Friday visit during an interview along the border in El Paso, Texas. Details and timing were not immediately available.
“I’m spending the day tomorrow with Secretary Mayorkas. He’ll be here,” Portman said when asked if he would have the chance to share what he saw on his visit to the border with the Biden administration.
“We’ll be looking at some of the issues including this huge problem with unaccompanied kids coming across the border,” he continued. “Those numbers have increased even more dramatically to the point that right now we have a true crisis in the detention facilities … We’re gonna talk about that tomorrow and we’ll see some of those facilities. And we’ll have a chance to talk about what I saw tonight.”
The Department of Homeland Security later put out a statement announcing Mayorkas’ visit. It noted that he will travel with a “bipartisan” group of senators. It also said press would not be allowed because of coronavirus precautions.
