Biden Official Urged Republican Senator To Delete Photos Of Crowded Border Facility: Report


A Republican senator claims a Biden official “asked that he delete his photos” he took as he toured an overcrowded facility at the U.S.-Mexico border last week, according to a new report. Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) told The Washington Examiner that a Biden aide involved in the tour “asked that he delete his photos. Like others on the trip, he didn’t.” “There was one of Biden’s representatives,” he told the Examiner. “I felt sorry for the lady because she actually talked to me about deleting a picture, but by the time she got to me, all those other pictures were taken, and that shows you the hypocrisy. None of us would have gone down there if we were going to be muzzled,” said Braun, who added that Border Patrol also asked that no photos be taken, but that “they were telling us that because they had to.’” Members of the party that toured the facility released pictures they took. Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) and others posted photos of the overcrowded holding facility in Donna, Texas, where Lankford said that “pods” designed to hold 80 children were packed with more than 700.
