CBS Refuses to Show Shipping Containers Biden Stores Migrant Kids In

Political News

On Thursday, the CBS Evening News was the only broadcast evening newscast brave enough to attempt to boast about President Biden’s latest moves on immigration, despite the revelation that he was storing migrant children in shipping containers. After touting Biden’s move to allow asylum seekers into the U.S., anchor Norah O’Donnell and correspondent Mireya Villarreal rushed past the “kids in containers” and just noted the outrage over the “facility.”

Villarreal only reserved the last 22 seconds of her segment to mention how Biden was treating the migrant kids:

Tonight, we’ve also learned that border crossings by unaccompanied minor, kids who come here alone and without their parents, is on the rise as well. And now the Biden administration is under fire from immigration advocates who are upset that they are opening up a facility just outside San Antonio, Texas. Reopening that facility to house those children.

Combining the Thursday evening coverage with Wednesday morning’s shows, CBS’s total time on Biden’s kiddie kennels added up to 1 minute and 17 seconds. But at no point did they show off the Mobile Mini containers the kids were kept in. Of course, this was after they initially ignored the containers.

According to an image shared by The Washington Post when they broke the story (though they called it a “migrant facility for children”), the containers appear to have dinged up outer walls, rusty air conditioners, and barred windows.

But instead of reporting on that, CBS tried to rehabilitate Biden’s immigration image. “And tonight, the Biden administration is allowing some asylum seekers who’ve been waiting at a camp in Mexico to cross into the U.S. to have their asylum request processed,” O’Donnell announced at the top of the segment.

Ignoring the fact that the U.S. immigration system had been a mess for a long time and the asylum process normally took a long time, Villarreal falsely suggested it was Trump’s fault:

These are the faces of some of the first asylum seekers in South Texas, dozens who were living in limbo in this Mexican border camp under what the Trump administration camp called the migrant protection protocols. Now, one step closer to having their cases heard, some waiting years. The Trump administration’s policy sent more than 70,000 people back to Mexico, creating a bottled neck of cases.

“Illegal crossings are also on the rise, with 3,000 arrests, on average, per day in January on the southwest border,” she added. “Coyotes are telling these families the border is open under this administration. Those illegal crossings further complicate the asylum process.”

In another case of bias by omission from Thursday’s Evening News, the network was finished reporting the sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. After ignoring the story Wednesday evening, CBS This Morning shared it with viewers Thursday morning.

CBS News really doesn’t like damaging Democratic politicians.

CBS’s refusal to show how President Biden was storing migrant children in shipping containers was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from IBM and Liberty Mutual.

NORAH O’DONNELL: And tonight, the Biden administration is allowing some asylum seekers who’ve been waiting at a camp in Mexico to cross into the U.S. to have their asylum request processed. It comes as border crossings are the largest they’ve been in a January in the past decade. CBS’s Mireya Villarreal went to the border to find out what is happening.

MIREYA VILLARREAL: These are the faces of some of the first asylum seekers in South Texas, dozens who were living in limbo in this Mexican border camp under what the Trump administration camp called the migrant protection protocols. Now, one step closer to having their cases heard, some waiting years. The Trump administration’s policy sent more than 70,000 people back to Mexico, creating a bottled neck of cases.

SAM BISHOP: Now people in the camp are remaining in place because they’re currently being registered.

VILLARREAL: Sam Bishop is a former Army veteran who said these migrants deserve a fair shot.

BISHOP: There’s a lot of fear in the U.S. about migration. But these are the people you don’t need to be worried about. They’re trying to do it in the right way. They’re trying to do it responsibly and in a manner that’s consistent with our laws.

VILLARREAL: Illegal crossings are also on the rise, with 3,000 arrests, on average, per day in January on the southwest border.

(Speaking to a migrant mother) You have two?

Some of the families we spoke with say they crossed the border with a smuggler. Coyotes are telling these families the border is open under this administration. Those illegal crossings further complicate the asylum process.

ANDREA RUDNIK (Team Brownsville Volunteer): It seems very unfair to the people that are still in the encampment, because they have waited to go through a very legal process, and they’ve been there more than a year and a half now.

VILLARREAL: Is this a by-product of just a system that has had a ton of Band-Aids but no true solution, no true fix?

RUDNIK: That’s true. And Mexico said that they would not accept families back with young children anymore.

VILLARREAL: Tonight, we’ve also learned that border crossings by unaccompanied minor, kids who come here alone and without their parents, is on the rise as well. And now the Biden administration is under fire from immigration advocates who are upset that they are opening up a facility just outside San Antonio, Texas. Reopening that facility to house those children. Norah.

O’DONNELL: Mireya Villarreal, thank you.

  1. Now that you confiscated the migrant kids from their coyotes, send the shipping containers full of migrant kids back to their parents so their parents can sell their migrant kids to other coyotes .

      1. The people coming here are not the main problem. IMO the governments of the countries from where they came are. I assume these countries get money from us; can you say payoffs? Which are laundered and sent back to the crooks in our government. There is no incentive to make life better for these poor people. Never let a crisis go to waste. Greed is and always will be the problem.

  2. So!!! Where do these migrant kids go when the democrats admit them to our country?m
    To the cages that b HUSSEIN o built? If they are granted asylum by this demented, so called president, or heels in the air, soon to be president, harris, where do they go to live, to get on our welfare system?

    1. They’re dispatched secretly to all parts of the U.S., to be housed with “caring families” who get paid like ordinary foster parents who are in it for the money, not the humanitarian cover story.

  3. They said “reopening that facility,” so “that facility” must be the same “cages” that the Left raged after Trump about.

  4. They call the camps dog kennels or refrigerators. If they want a better life they need to go home and fix the problems there, we do not owe them free crap paid for by US citizens.

  5. the lying leftist media would praise him for “handling” the illegal situation if he had them all taken to the border, shot and dumped on the other side. Then they would blame President Trump and Mexico for the deaths. They refuse to tell the truth about pedo joe and his call girl the hairy kamel

  6. Within this year you will witness Joe Biden leave the presidency for medical reasons. He suffers from either Parkinson’s or other brain issues. That’s why Pelosi sought revision of 25th amendment. She even said it wasn’t about Trump. It’s already being discretely leaked by the Secret Service. We will thus then have an UNELECTED Pres. Harris.
    That’s when the REAL TROUBLE starts!

  7. Not a surprise. Obummer deported lots of migrants and actually built the cages that the left constantly blamed the still President Trump. Wonder if those shipping containers of children will be shipped?I suspect to pedophiles.

  8. I agree with some of the comments, but those calling for killing these folks? Come on! They do need to be sent home. But, this shows, that despite all the dumb rhetoric, America is still a place people want to be. The blame needs to go to the political party, and the administration, that sent the fable about immigration they have no idea how to run. The coyotes are also part of the blame. The statistics, (do the research), shows that obama sent far more illegals back, than Trump did. It always amazes me that, with the tech we have today, people buy into the crap put out there without checking the info out. I mean a couple of clicks and the statistic either prove the point, or show it to be false. It’s not rocket science to find out the facts.

  9. I can tell you for a fact they are spread out all over the USA. Red states included. Our small town of 400 was delivered a couple from the big train migration under the Kenyan president. They drop the non english speakers wherever they want. Our hard earned tax dollars pay for their every want, need, and existence. What a drain on our country. God Bless America and the Patriots who need to take this Country Back!!!

  10. There is one can’t miss solution load all these undoc.people with tents a portable outhouse and enough food and supplies to last for 3 months and deliver them to the Whitehouse lawn and Pelosi’s gated community and other wants to be “DO GOODERS” AND YOU MIGHT INCLUDE A FEW “HOMELESS PEOPLE” IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW LONG THAT WOULD LAST. Just a thought

  11. Ripped from their parents arms “That’s what this mental midget just said” After she said they come to the border UN-attended.

    Well you can’t fix STUPID ! That is exactly what the Democrat administration is and their press UN-bathed non washed spokesperson is.
