Health and Human Services officials will allow reporters to visit a military facility housing some of the immigrant children who have arrived at the southern border in recent weeks, but only if the media promises not to record anything, not to ask any questions during the tour, and not to talk to any of the staff members or children.

“This violates the First Amendment,” Representative Jim Bridenstine (R., Okla.), who represents the congressional district containing the housing facility at Fort Sill, said of the HHS invitation to the media. “This is not transparent. HHS is trying to muzzle the media and hide the human tragedy that has resulted directly from the administration’s failure to enforce the law.”

HHS attached seven rules “in order to protect the safety and privacy of the children” for the media who come to the tour, according to an HHS invitation released by Bridenstine’s office:


- No recording devices will be allowed
- No questions will be allowed during the tour
- No interacting with staff and children at the shelter
- We ask that your questions be provided via email or phone after the tour to Kenneth Wolfe
- HHS ACF public affairs will provide answers to your follow up questions as quickly as possible
- We will provide photos of the facility after the tour
- There will be no on-site interviews by HHS staff before or after the tour, all inquiries go to Kenneth Wolfe

Bridenstine was barred from entering the Fort Sill facility on July 1. He is trying to schedule a July 12 visit, in addition to unannounced visits that he will again attempt to make.

“Ordinary Americans have a right to know what is happening in these facilities, how the children are being treated, and what is being done to stop this human tragedy,” he said in a Monday morning statement.

Of *Course* the Obama HHS will muzzle anything they can get away with.

In this case, it's most obvious they have plenty to hide.

Can't have the general public seeing what's going on or anything now can they.

The Administration will hold true to form as always.

This is 100% the "REAL" Obama in action !!

The U.N. is going to end up on that border. Watch and see. Either through humanitarian aid or through the World Health Organization due to an outbreak. I think this is that snowflake thats about to avalanche out of control and people better be a little more attentive and in a better state of preparedness for some sort of societal breakdown soon.

holy crap, can't even bother to groom select staff for a little press op, huh? protecting the kids' privacy is understandable, and i guess it makes sense to also avoid photos that would show layout/security details. but you could still show a room (cell?) and rec facilities, maybe allow an interview with whatever child dev. specialist they've hopefully got around to oversee the naturalization/debriefing process.

muzzling the press completely like this sends two messages: the facilities are subpar, and they don't care enough about what the public thinks to even put on a good show.

That's a good point.

Glad you brought it up.

This is bigger than anticipated.

Bigger agenda in play indeed.

That's why they are "scheduling" everything.

S & F My Friend, You do know their coming for you right, I hope you have thick shin because the obama supporter are going to call you a Racist and a Hater of Children.

Here an insight to the individual that obama post as the director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Of-Course these people are Not Truly Refugees, But, Obama wants them called that. Their not coming from War Torn Countries.
This is what this True Follower of Obama says about these illegals.


he man who heads the federal agency responsible for many of the 50,000 unaccompanied alien children from Central America who have entered the U.S. illegally in recent months told attendees at a conference on Tuesday that those working with refugees should look to Jesus Christ as a role model.“
Jesus was a refugee, and that’s a very good reminder to all of us,”

OK, Why? Just because you say Jesus was a Refugee doesn't make any of this Right.
I thought Jesus or God or some body said that you still had to obey the Laws of the Land as you Obey Goods Laws.
I guess Obama and his Disciple can change that Law to.


“I happen to believe in [the] refugee program, not just because Jesus was a refugee -- because I was also myself a refugee,” said Negash, who was named to his post by the Obama administration in 2009.

Now read the next part closely.


He recalled when someone asked him: “Do you want ORR to be under the radar?”

“And I told him, yes, we don’t necessarily need [the] media always talking about the work we do, but unfortunately, now every day you can see it on every channel, about this tiny office, ORR,”
Negash said.

Negash said that the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program is the largest of ORR’s programs, with a $912 million budget. President Barack Obama has asked Congress to appropriate an additional $2 billion for ORR’s UAC program.

They are NOT Refugees, They are fleeing Poverty not a War or Revolution.

Haha my skin is the thickest. I'm also black with a little latino mixed in so I'm far from a racist. I'm a realist. If they are putting gag orders on people then we all know that these people are being housed inhumanely. And we don't have the money to just release them into America to be absorbed into the system. There are sick people being housed in close quarters. This is the perfect recipe for a disaster. Add rioting people, psy-ops saying that it's all children and women, riot gear being en route, and U.N. troops training on U.S. soil. Millions of spare rounds of ammunition. MRAP's. I see where this is going. I pray that other people do too.

I have to wonder, does the obama administration call these murderers Refugees and do you think they hide them from reporters and Congress men and women who come around?



Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States.

"We have six minors in Nogales who have admitted to killing and doing grievous bodily injuries. One admitted to killing as young as eight years old," an agent tells Townhall anonymously for fear of losing his job for speaking out. "They are being held for placement in the U.S."



"But remember, this is a 'humanitarian crisis.' They are just kids," he said in a frustrated and sarcastic tone. "They are MS-13 gang members. They've done everything from torture to murder. They act as teenage 'enforcers.'

So,,, Obama have you give'n order's to hide your children from the prying eyes of people who want answers?
What You Hiding Obama?

Excellent point. We are all sitting here wondering why the heck Obama doesn't turn off the illegal flood, and perhaps that's the answer ... the NWO needs a troop foothold in the USA and this is it. (I'm going on the thought that Obama is doing this on purpose to help destroy the USA ... it could be a matter of both those things).

At least North Korea knows how to secure their border.

Second verse.

Exactly....North Korea could learn us a thing or two about securing a border. Everyones been wondering how they were going to take our sovereignty and get this new world order into action. If this isn't the perfect "international" crisis what is?

Posting this next article well cause it belongs in this thread.



n unprecedented criticism of the White House, 38 journalism groups have assailed the president's team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials and overall “politically-driven suppression of the news.”


Censorship: 38 journalism groups slam Obama's 'politically-driven suppression of news'

Between the OP, and the same thing was done to US congressman earlier.

Say this article calls it like it is.

Muzzling the media is being done for political reasons.

Which is par for the course from the 'Most open, and transparent administration in US history'.

First they tell reporters stay away from the border cuz it's dangerous. Then they deny a congressman entry. Then They gag the staff. Now they are gagging the press. All the people who keep saying " what about the children" need to consider that. IF it was all about " the children" they would have no problem proudly displaying the help they were providing these people. They don't want anyone to see because A...they are being housed inhumanely B....They aren't just women and children as they have been claiming and C... There are more sick people than they are letting on to.
