With every passing day, this administration makes us madder and madder.
It also makes the case for being one of the least transparent administrations of all time.
This time, Biden and company are trying to hide the facts about an arrest made at the border of two terror watch list border crossers.
On Monday, Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) issued a press release that two people on the terror watch list were captured trying to enter the country illegally.
The agency was proud of the arrests, as was evident in the tone of the release, which, in part, stated, “Part of the Border Patrol’s mission states we will protect the country from terrorists.
“Today, like every other day, our agents did that.
“These apprehensions at our border illustrates the importance of our mission and how we can never stop being vigilant in our everyday mission to protect this great country.”
Terrorists crossing the border is a problem, even in small numbers, as they can easily set up shop and start recruiting once they are here.
This does not even account for the damage one or two people can do, as we have seen repeatedly (think Dallas and the Boston Marathon Bombers).
Even so, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to downplay the arrests, stating, “But encounters of known and suspected terrorists are very uncommon.
“They do underscore the importance of the critical work that is done on a daily basis to vet those at the border.”
It was almost as though she was upset that CBP was able to make the arrest rather than celebrating the fact a couple of very bad people did not make it into the country.
CBP then issued a statement echoing those very same talking points, then, poof, the press release was gone, leading to outrage among Republicans for the clear lack of transparency on the part of the administration…
.@DHSgov & @CBP Why did you take down your previously public tweet & press release announcing that two people on the terror watch list were apprehended exploiting President Biden's open border policies?
Transparency in name alone is not transparency. https://t.co/6SONcvlwAa

I am not sure what it is going to take for the people of this country to turn on this administration, but this is about as bad as it gets.
They are lying or hiding things on a daily basis and the mainstream media is complicit.
Just imagine if the Trump administration had done something like this and how Jim Acosta, Jake Tapper, or Chris Cuomo would have reacted when the camera lights went on.
Where is that same outrage now? Why is the media allowing this administration to get away with this outright deception on a daily basis?
