Chris Wallace Laces Jen Psaki Over Denying Media Migrant Access: ‘You’re Being Less Transparent’ Than Trump Admin

White House press secretary Jen Psaki got a taste of how it felt for Trump administration officials when she was grilled on Sunday by Fox News’ Chris Wallace

For weeks, the Biden regime has not allowed reporters to access any migrant detention facilities along the U.S.-Mexico border, even as reports note that the illegal immigrant crisis is worsening.

Everyone who isn’t a blatant partisan knows why: The Biden administration doesn’t want Americans to see just how badly the situation is being handled; they don’t want Americans to see the horrid, overcrowded conditions migrants, especially migrant children, are living in.

But Psaki keeps covering for the regime, claiming concerns about COVID are behind the administration’s reasoning.

For his part and to his credit, Wallace wasn’t buying.

“At this point, in terms of allowing access to border patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration,” Wallace told Psaki during the segment.

“The only way we know how bad conditions are for some 5,000 minors in these Border Patrol facilities is because of … pictures that members of Congress have released on their own,” Wallace continued.

“Jen, these kids are living in these conditions now. They’re not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed. So why not allow reporters and camera crews in — even on a pool basis — safely to take pictures and show the American people what’s happening in these Border Patrol facilities right now?”

Psaki launched into a lengthy answer about how the regime is “committed” to allowing the press access — with Wallace interjecting at one point to ask “But when?”

“Just last week we had a pool camera providing footage to Fox News into the shelters. We want to provide access into the Border Patrol facilities. We’re mindful of the fact that we’re in the middle of a pandemic,” Psaki said.

“We want to keep these kids safe, keep the staff safe. But we’re absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the Border Patrol facilities, and we’re working to get that done as soon as we can.”

Wallace called out the press secretary with a truth bomb.

“At this point, in terms of allowing access to Border Patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration,” he said.

“Well, first of all, Chris, the Trump administration was turning away kids at the border, sending them back on the treacherous journey, or they were ripping kids from the arms of their parents. We’re not doing that. We are committed to allowing cameras into the Border Patrol facilities, absolutely,” she said.

In fact, the Trump administration didn’t “turn away” migrant kids at the border; they were taken into custody by Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection, cared for, and then humanely flown back to their countries of origin under agreements that President Trump’s administration made with Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador — agreements that Biden’s handlers had him end the first day in office through a series of executive orders.

“This humane policy from President Trump brought unaccompanied minor numbers to record lows. Biden’s disastrous decision to exempt minors from Title 42, and to stop the at-home reunification process in favor of domestic resettlement, single-handedly created this crisis,” former Trump adviser Stephen Miller, who spearheaded the ex-president’s immigration policies.

“The youth migrant crisis will only end when Biden does a full 180 & switches from a resettlement policy to a repatriation policy. As long as he admits every minor crossing illegally they will keep getting smuggled in record numbers—and the needless suffering will continue,” he added.
