ABC’s Raddatz on Border Crisis: Biden Admin ‘Restricting Access Despite Promising Transparency’

Anchor Martha Raddatz said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week”  that the Biden administration was falling short on their promises of transparency at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Raddatz said, “We join you this morning from El Paso, Texas. Mexico just beyond that fence you see right behind me. So many on the other side desperate to cross the border, and so many here on U.S. soil calling for change, pressuring the Biden administration is loathe to label this a crisis even as the tide of migrants surges.”

“The number of unaccompanied children and teenagers in border patrol custody reaching record numbers,” she continued. “Children forced to stay longer in overcrowded facilities. The media not allowed inside. The administration restricting access despite promising transparency, citing COVID and privacy concerns. The issue that at times plagued the previous administration now presenting a challenge to the Biden administration, one that shows no sign of abating any time soon.”
