what do you do when you can't pin it on Trump?
suppress, distort, suppress!

The Epoch Times's headline:

Leaked Photos Show Children Packed in ‘Terrible Conditions’ in Border Patrol Facility

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) released several photos from an overflow tent facility in Donna, Texas, showing extremely crowded conditions as hundreds of illegal immigrants and minors pour across the border.

The photos show children sleeping on the floors along with makeshift beds.

Cuellar, whose office first shared the photos with Axios, told the news outlet that one “pod” held more than 400 unaccompanied male minors. The pods are supposed to hold a maximum of 260 people, he said.

The pods provide “terrible conditions for the children,” Cuellar added, saying these children should be moved to be housed and cared for by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Over the weekend, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas visited areas along the border, but his office restricted media access. A number of news outlets have said that their journalists and photographers have been denied access.

The above is news you probably won't get from the mainstream-media outlets that are doing their desperate best to protect Joe Biden from criticism.  The narrative is simple:  Trump = Satan; Biden = God.  Anything that punctures the narrative must be suppressed at all costs.  (I just checked CNN.com; there's nothing about this there.  To its credit, ABC News does have a video on the topic, but the video makes sure to bash Trump and absolve Biden:  Texas Representative Henry Cuellar, a Democrat, is asked for his opinion.  No contrasting Republican opinion is solicited.  Narrative über alles!)
