CBS Reports on Two Million Migrant Encounters, ABC & NBC Ignore

News & Politics

On Monday, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that over two million illegal migrants have been apprehended and processed at the border in the past year. Which is a record high and only underscores the reality of our nation’s rapidly worsening border crisis. While Fox News has been on top of the story with on-the-ground reporting from national correspondent Bill Melugin, the leftist broadcast networks have been hesitant to cover the border crisis out of fear it will make President Joe Biden look bad.  

With today’s news of migrant encounters passing two million, at least one network gave attention to the story. On CBS’s flagship evening newscast, CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell and the network’s national correspondent Manuel Bojorquez ran a report on the stunning numbers. 

Meanwhile ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News ran cover for the Biden administration. Instead of covering the crisis, ABC decided to run a report on a earthquake in Mexico, while NBC thought it was more important to run another segment on Serial podcast subject Adnan Syed’s murder conviction being overturned. 

During CBS’s coverage, anchor Norah O’Donnell announced the border news to her audience. “U.S. Border officials said today just over two million migrants have been apprehended and processed in the last year. That record high includes more than 200,000 just last month,” O’Donnell reported.

Reporting from El Paso, Texas, national correspondent Manuel Bojorquez, revealed that “border patrol says more than 1,000 migrants are crossing into the area a day. To ensure they’re no longer sleeping in the streets, the city set up this migrant welcome center.” 

“The asylum seekers here are mostly from Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba, which lack diplomatic ties with the U.S. And therefore no quick way to return them,” Bojorquez. 

Concluding his report, Bojorquez announced “that a local Sheriff has launched a criminal investigation into how Florida’s Governor transported nearly 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts last week.” 

This bias by omission from ABC & NBC was made possible by Ensure on ABC, and Geico on NBC. Their information is linked so you can let them know about the biased news they fund.

NORAH O’DONNELL: U.S. Border officials said today just over two million migrants have been apprehended and processed in the last year. That record high includes more than 200,000 just last month. CBS’ Manuel Bojorquez reports tonight from El Paso, Texas, a border city struggling to respond. 

MANUEL BOJORQUEZ: Yet another bus carrying migrants arrived in New York City from Texas, a multi-day journey that for many started here. El Paso, where border patrol says more than 1,000 migrants are crossing into the area a day. To ensure they’re no longer sleeping in the streets, the city set up this migrant welcome center. 

We’re getting an average of 400 people a day? 

TONY MURO (ASSISTANT EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR): Yes, sir. And that’s– that’s going to be increasing shortly. 

BOJORQUEZ: So you don’t see this slowing down at this point? 

MURO: At this point, we’re just managing the numbers as they come in. 

BOJORQUEZ: The asylum seekers here are mostly from Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba, which lack diplomatic ties with the U.S. And therefore no quick way to return them. Maria is trying to get to New York with her three-year-old son. There’s no work, not enough money. You think you would die. Here they get help reaching their next destination, some seeing it laid out for the first time. 

You’re seeing how long it’s going to take. El Paso has sent nearly 60 buses with migrants north, but the city says it’s closely coordinated that with local leaders at those destinations to ensure they are ready to receive them. We’re also learning tonight that a local sheriff has launched a criminal investigation into how Florida’s Governor transported nearly 50 migrants to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts last week. Norah? 

O’DONNELL: Manuel Bojorquez on the border. Thank you.
