(Tea Party PAC) – A senior-level law enforcement source in the Department of Homeland Security recently spoke to Breitbart Texas and stated that they had been given verbal orders from inside the agency that limits their ability to speak freely and share information about the current crisis unfolding at the southern border.
According to Breitbart, the official who had this information spoke with the news outlet under condition of anonymity due to the fact that they are not authorized to talk about the issue.
“The situation with media relations now is night and day compared to the last administration, The official stated. “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.”
The verbal order applies to senior law enforcement leaders who work for DHS and, as of now, does not seem to have any sort of expiration date. This information comes to light as the current administration is beginning to struggle with the growing crisis at the border which came about as the result of severer changes in border security and immigration policies from our president who was eager to take action to erase the legacy of former President Donald Trump.
Local communities located along the U.S.-Mexico border are continuing to have issues with the release of migrants into their towns and cities, as they are running short on resources and supplies to adequately care for these individuals. Then, of course, there’s the threat of spiking COVID cases due to many of these individuals not being properly tested before being released.
Even other Democrats, like Rep. Henry Cuellar from Texas, is criticizing the president and his administration over this unfolding crisis. Cuellar recently sat down for an interview on Fox News saying, “I can tell you this, those numbers of people that are being released, they’re purposely withholding that information.”
“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,” the congressman stated. “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.”
“The verbal order delivered through DHS channels is designed to prevent senior leaders from shedding light on the immigration situation that currently plagues the administration. On Saturday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Biden’s director of the Domestic Policy Council, Susan Rice, visited several Texas cities to see the situation along the border first hand,” Breitbart’s report says.
Members of the press weren’t allowed to be president when the delegation visited the Border Patrol stations and when Health and Human Services took a look at the detention facility currently housing unaccompanied minors.
