Nets Look Away from Border As Nearly 10,000 Migrants Stage in Mexico

The border crisis was out of sight out of mind for the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) Monday evening after most of them spent last week peddling lies about Border Patrol agents using whips from horseback. But as Fox News Channel’s Special Report documented that evening, some 10,000 Haitian migrants were staging in Mexico with another 15,000 reportedly on their way through the “pipeline” from South America. Instead of reporting on this impending next wave in the ongoing border crisis, ABC’s World News Tonight fretted about the “fuel crisis” in the U.K., CBS Evening News touched on Facebook pausing its proposed Instagram for young teens, and NBC Nightly News was out there talking about how attempted presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr. “wins freedom.” All three of them also touted how President Biden had gotten his COVID booster shot. Meanwhile, Fox News anchor Bret Baier kicked off Special Report with the looming crisis. “Breaking tonight, the southern border crisis at the Texas border is about to get worse because of the southern border crisis at the Mexican border with Guatemala. That is the entry point for thousands of migrants hoping to make their way into the U.S.,” he announced at the top of the hour.     Correspondent Griff Jenkins was in Tapachula where “Mexican officials here say they have never seen anything like this. In that, it dwarfs what we saw in 2019 when we covered the caravans who came through here.” Jenkins broke down the numbers, explaining how many were Haitian and how Mexican officials warned that they were on pace to have more people pass through Mexico than in 2019: JENKINS: Officials here say as many as 10,000 Haitians are stuck in Tapachula applying for refugee status and work permits, biding their time waiting to head north to the U.S. (…) JENKINS: It's overwhelming Mexican officials who say that so far this year they’ve received over 77,000 migrants which is already more than all of 2019. The head of Mexico's Refugee Commission says by the end of September, that number will be close to 90,000. Nearly 71 percent of those migrants passed through Tapachula. “Mexican officials here in charge of refugees in the state of Chiapas say they are preparing for an onslaught of as many as 15,000 confirmed migrants in South America, many Haitian, many in Colombia on their way here,” he added near the end of his segment. “So much so, that officials tomorrow morning are opening up a soccer stadium to deal with the overwhelming numbers.” Speaking with Jenkins, one of the migrants had a message for Biden. “I want to say something to President Biden. It will help us because everybody here want to have a better life and a future. Want to have a better life tomorrow, want to work,” the man said. Jenkins also spoke to another man in a Biden campaign shirt who refused to go back to Haiti. This refusal to keep an eye on the border crisis was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Ford Motor Company on ABC, Mr. Clean on CBS, and Ancestry on NBC.

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Biden, help us or we will die. UNIDENTIFIED MAN 3: So, it has become very difficult for us and we have children. They are sick and we need to go to the hospital. JENKINS: It’s part of a pipeline of migrants running from south America through this southern Mexican town and eventually the U.S. border. UNIDENTIFIED MAN 2: I want to go to the United States with my family. The rest, all the people here in Mexico want to do that. To have a better life.
