‘I Never Saw More Damning Quotes’: NYT Reporter Scolds Biden Officials For Treating Migrants Worse Than Trump Did | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Virginia Kruta. .

    New York Times reporter Michael Shear cornered White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and National Security Council spokesman John Kirby - during a Friday briefing - about the administration's handling of the ongoing crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Shear pointed out the fact that humanitarian groups have sounded more alarms about the Biden administration's treatment of migrants than they did when former President Donald Trump was in the White House.


    "I spent a long time covering immigration stuff during the Trump years. I - I never saw more damning quotes from immigration advocacy groups and human rights groups during the Trump years than - as I saw yesterday towards this administration," Shear began.

    Shear went on to read a quote from the head of a refugee group, quoting her as saying that the Biden administration's most recent immigration policies amounted to "a humanitarian disgrace" - and he said that she was far from the only one who felt that way.

    "That was echoed across the board in literally scores of emails I got from every humanitarian group," he continued. "What do you all - what does the administration say to the overwhelming consensus from people who advocate on behalf of asylum seekers and refugees and migrants that what the president did yesterday was 'a humanitarian disgrace'?"

    "Well, obviously, we take a different view," Kirby objected, arguing that Biden was attempting to strike a balance between allowing refugees to safely enter the United States and encouraging legal immigration while also curtailing illegal immigration and making sure that the border was secure.

    A bit later in the briefing, Jean-Pierre called Shear out directly - and he pushed the issue again.

    "The advocacy folks and the community of people who are lawyers and advocates and humanitarian experts, what they would say is the president is using the tools, and he's using them in a harsh and unbalanced way," Shear said, going on to note that the end result was that the Biden administration was likely to face lawsuits from those advocacy groups in much the same way that the Trump administration had.

In what may be the most divisive period in modern American History, even more divisive than the turbulent sixties due to today's lack of patriotism, consider what are the major catalysts causing so much of this calamity of conflict, and vote: What most instigates the division of America, on this day September 20, 2022?
  Racism within our society
  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.
  The unresolved questions /allegation regarding the flawed 2020 General Election
  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.
  The Weaponized Deep State for political purposes
  A secular ambivalence to all that is real.
  Record number of overdose deaths from opioids and now Fentanyl
  Biden Administration's disastrous Foreign Policy
  Bidenflation /supply chain failure inevitably evolving into stagflation and recession.
  "Ultra MAGA Extremists" freely speaking louder AND LOUDER!

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

From this post one must admire the unbridled revelation of just discovered incredulity erupting from this reporter, of the disgraced and disrespected Corrupt New York Times, as he discovers that there is a border crisis that slowly began under Speaker Nancy Pelosi denying funding to fix the problem 4 years ago, to NOW when America's First Idiot President opened the Southern Border wide to record numbers of Illegals two years ago, and now America is under a full fledged undeterred invasion; and invasion planned to perfection by the Non Patriot Left.

Maybe we should all be thankful that small segments of the Democratic Socialist Propagandistic Media is being forced to observe the "humanitarian crisis for the immigrants," while disregarding the mammoth effects that the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border has caused upon the viability of our Republic, but I for one will only consider this New York Times reporter a little less STUPID than his peers.
