Sen. Barrasso says he was told to delete photos of border facilities

Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso, the third-ranking Republican in the Senate, on Sunday said he was told to delete photos of migrant facilities at the border — as he claimed children are being packed “like sardines” inside. “This is both a humanitarian crisis and a national security crisis,” Barrasso said during an interview on Fox News. Barrasso said on “Sunday Morning Futures” that GOP senators were told by officials to delete photos they took of the facilities during a recent visit to the US-Mexico border. “We were told to delete the pictures,” he said. “No one did. You’ve seen the video coming out of all of these kids crammed together under the foil blankets, huddling together.” Unaccompanied minors, who have been flooding the border in recent weeks, are “crammed like sardines,” he added. “This is what the Biden administration is trying to hide from the American public.” The lawmaker also noted that US Customs and Border Protection officials are only testing migrant kids for the coronavirus when they leave the agency’s facilities for other government-run centers — not when they arrive — raising fears about the possible spread of COVID-19 around the country.
