An immigration reform organization says the media remains derelict in its coverage of the ongoing border crisis Joe Biden created.

Since the president's recent press conference marking the first anniversary of his inauguration, he has received a significant amount of scrutiny over his poor messaging, false claims, and even cognitive ability. But what has gone largely ignored is the mainstream media's failure to ask Biden any immigration-related questions.

Some of the disregarded topics include the recent Texas hostage situation, the more than two million border apprehensions in the last calendar year, record numbers of drug seizures, COVID outbreaks, and human trafficking. Instead, reporters at the event focused more on Ukraine's border situation.

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), says the media is having a hard time protecting Biden.

"These days, if they were trying to avoid asking questions about a topic that would put him in a bad light, there wouldn't be much to ask because there's just so much out there that is going wrong under this administration on countless fronts," Mehlman tells American Family News.

"These are all the sorts of questions that should be asked but are not asked because I think it's pretty well documented that the media are not doing their job. And as a result, the trust of the American public in our so-called news media has plummeted along with their reluctance to really address hard issues."

The FAIR spokesman says the mainstream media should play an important role in holding President Biden and his administration accountable for his actions. But without bringing these types of matters into the light, the status quo will remain.
