Photojournalist: Every President Has Allowed Me To Photograph CBP Border Operations Except Biden

Joe Biden tries to hide his border issue

A bipartisan group of senators is now demanding that the President allows the media to photograph the crisis at the border. Strange things are happening on Biden’s watch and he is trying to cover up his bad work.

“I respectfully ask US Customs and Border Protection to stop blocking media access to their border operations. I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now – zero access is granted to media. These long lens images taken from the Mexican side,” Moore wrote. “There’s no modern precedent for a full physical ban on media access to CBP border operations. To those who might say, cut them some slack – they are dealing with a situation, I’d say that showing the US response to the current immigrant surge is exactly the media’s role.”

CBP was formed in 2003 in the time of former President George W. Bush.

“Photographing Border Patrol agents and immigrant encounters can and has been done respectfully without interfering with operations. Regardless, @cbp public affairs exists to work with media,” he continued. “And Pandemic restrictions are not a valid excuse to block physical media access, especially to operations that are outside. There are easy alternative options to media ride-alongs.”

“Showing the difficult and important work of @cbp agents in the field, while also photographing immigrants in a dignified way are not mutually exclusive endeavors. Transparency is key, even in a politicized environment,” Moore continued. “The photographs in this tweet string were taken with a telephoto lens from across the border in Mexico. Until now, US photojournalists haven’t needed to stand in another country to photograph what’s happening – in the United States.”

“The vast majority of river crossings by asylum seekers happen on federal land in south Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. The federal govt. controls access to those areas,” he concluded. “The Border Patrol has been removing journalists who enter, including recently myself, CBS, others.”

Media reporters went after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki last week. They complained over the lack of media access that the current administration is giving to reporters. One of them reminded Psaki that the President “all came in and promised to be the most truthful and transparent administration.”

In his recent interview, Biden DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said if “loving parents” send their minor kids alone to the US Mexico border, the new administration won’t expel them. Moreover, they will also “care for” the kids.

Mexico’s left-wing government has issued concerns about Biden’s policy. They say the President is “stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime.” Mexico is trying to launch a crackdown on its own southern border in an effort to stop the flow of illegal aliens to the US.
