President Trump Planning To Extend Invitation To Reporters For Tour Of Border Detention Centers

Linkedin Share

President Trump spoke on Sunday stating that he plans to invite reporters to go take a tour of the border detention centers holding illegal immigrants at the southern borders so they can see the kind of conditions these folks are living in for themselves.

All of this comes hot on the heels of the massive controversy stirred up by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who compared the detention centers to “concentration camps,” which also drew quite a bit of well-deserved heat for the freshman congresswoman.

Here’s TheBlaze with more details:

According to CNN, President Trump was asked by a reporter whether he would visit the U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Texas, which The New York Times recently described as “the public face of the chaos at America’s southern border.”

“What we’re going to do is I’m going to start showing some of these detention centers, because — to the press — I want the press to go in and see them,” the president explained.

President Trump said he had already spoken with Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan to make arrangements for the press tours.

“We’re going to have some of the press go in because they are crowded, and we’re the ones complaining about they’re crowded,” Trump said.

“They’re crowded because people come up, but now thanks to Mexico, it’s slowing down greatly, and I think you’ll start seeing some very good numbers,” the president continued. “But it is crowded. But we want to have the press go in and see because you know what The New York Times, it really is fake news.”

Secretary McAleenan spoke with ABC News on Sunday saying that the Times’ story on the conditions at these facilities was “unsubstantiated,” noting there is adequate food and water available for those who were being held at the center. He also said the facility is cleaned every day.

This is just another cog in the wheel of the liberal machine that is desperately attempting to destroy Trump and his administration any way they can because of the upcoming election.

Manufacturing controversies where none exists has become a favorite activity of the radical left in this country. Hopefully, once reporters get a look at the detention centers for themselves the madness will stop.
