ABC Censors Obama’s Criticism of Biden’s ‘Open Borders’ from Interview
Network leaves out former President's remarks
ABC News has censored former President Barack Obama's recent remarks criticizing Joe Biden's "open borders" as "unsustainable" from a televised portion of his interview.
Obama told co-host, Robin Roberts:
"Immigration is tough."
"It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that want to help others."
"And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they're in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe."
"At the same time, we're a nation-state."
"We have borders."
"The idea that we can just have open borders is something that ... as a practical matter, is unsustainable," he added.
ABC did, however, air the part where Obama blamed Republicans for the failure of comprehensive immigration reform to pass Congress and noted his administration's approval of temporary legal status given to Haitian migrants after the 2010 earthquake.
ABC did also include Obama's full comments in the online article about his interview, but they were not mentioned until the 13th paragraph.
Obama's admission of the current border crisis ran in stark contrast to the Biden administration's narrative.
Neon Nettle reported that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that approximately 12,000 Haitian migrants have now been released into the United States before adding the number "could be even higher."
Last week, a top senator warned Joe Biden's immigration policies are "designed to fail."
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) slammed the Biden administration's handling of tens of thousands of illegal aliens that have flooded Del Rio, Texas.
Cornyn says Biden knows the policies will "fail" as they are "designed" to ultimately end up attracting more illegal aliens.
