Ted Cruz Calls Out Biden For His Hypocrisy When It Comes To Media Blackout Of Border

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) lashed out at Joe Biden on Monday in an open letter to him in which he called on the president to be more transparent with the media about the migrant crisis at the U.S./Mexico border.

Cruz Calls Out Biden

In letter to the president, Cruz called out Biden, saying that it was “outrageous and hypocritical” for him to ban reporters from accessing the situation at the border.

“As part of our oversight duties as Senators, I and 14 of my colleagues will travel to the border this week to talk to the brave men and women on the ground who are working every today [sic] to stop this crisis and secure our border,” Cruz wrote.

“But it is not enough for members of the Senate to see what is happening — the American people must see,” he added. “That is why I requested that members of the media be allowed to join us. But your administration clearly and emphatically refused to offer press access. This is outrageous and hypocritical.”

Cruz Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Cruz slammed Biden for pledging “truth and transparency” and already breaking that promise weeks into his presidency.

“At the beginning of your administration, Press Secretary Jen Psaki stressed the importance of ‘truth and transparency’ and a ‘deep respect for the role of a free and independent press,'” Cruz wrote.

“At the beginning of the month, Secretary Mayorkas stated that he would adhere to principles of ‘openness and transparency,'” he added. “But now, when your administration faces a crisis of your own making, you are refusing to allow the very transparency you promised and that you demanded from prior administrations.

‘Denying The Press The Ability To Observe…Is Not Openness’

“Denying the press the ability to observe, film, and report on the conditions at the border is not openness or transparency-it is hiding the truth from the American people,” Cruz said.

“The press and the American people deserve more than denials and excuses from a podium,” he continued. “They deserve to see and understand the crisis for themselves with the help of reporters who are free and independent from your administration.”

This coming Friday, Cruz will be teaming up with Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) to lead a group of fourteen lawmakers to tour the Rio Grande Valley. He ended his letter by saying that it is “unacceptable” that the Biden administration will not allow reporters to join them.

“I call on you to reverse this decision immediately and commit to allowing free and fair reporting on the crisis at the border,” Cruz said.

  • Fox News host tells Trump that Biden's DHS secretary has resigned, notes her error after he applauds
    In a phone interview with former President Donald Trump on Monday, Fox News host Harris Faulkner broke some news. Unfortunately for her, it was literally fake news. "This has just happened now, and I want to double-check this with our producers," Faulkner said. "The DHS secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, has resigned, Mr. President. Your thoughts?" Trump said he wasn't surprised at the resignation of the newly confirmed Homeland Security secretary. "It's a big victory for our country," he said.
    The victory did not last long, as Faulkner pretty quickly learned through her earpiece that Mayorkas had not, in fact, resigned.
    Trump had called for Mayorkas to step down in a statement Sunday night, citing the increase in migrants trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. Faulkner told Trump later in the interview that it's unusual for former presidents to "weigh in at this level" and asked why he felt the need to break protocol. "Well, you called me, I didn't call you, in all fairness," Trump said. Touché? MAGA!

  • Many serious, even drastic, measures are needed to defend America and reduce incentives to immigrate.
    Recognize that Mexico is waging war against the United States by migrant invasion and mobilize for war.
    Dig the American Canal more than twice the size of Panama's between Brownsville and San Diego. It will be a sea-level seaway like Suez with no need for locks. It will be infinitely more effective against invasion than a wall. It would have monumental commercial benefits. And strategic benefits: The American Canal, hard by the GREATEST OIL STRIKE IN HISTORY, on federal lands in the Permian Basin of Texas, WILL COMPOUND THE UTILITY OF AMERICAN AND ALLIED MILITARY ASSETS BY GREATLY FACILITATING THEIR DEPLOYMENT AND REDEPLOYMENT WORLD-WIDE. It'll be especially helpful in helping firm up CANZUK by giving the UK direct sea access westerly to Canada's Pacific ports and Australia and New Zealand, as well as many powerful countries arrayed against communist China, such as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia and India, and others.
    Put America under martial law.
    Terminate diplomatic relations with Mexico for the duration.
    Expropriate all Mexican assets in the USA.
    Repeal “chain migration”.
    Restore the draft.
    Amend the 14th Amendment to eliminate citizenship based solely on birth in the United States and the acquisition of constitutional rights based solely on presence in the United States. These are major incentives to immigration.

  • Build it (open borders), and they will come. The politicians will not be paying for it, the American public/citizens will be, through more taxes.
