Left-leaning Washington Post made more corrections to a story after realizing their information was not correct. This time the publication made edits to a story published March 23 that previously claimed there is no migrant surge at the border.
The headline now reads, “The migrant ‘surge’ at the U.S. southern border is actually a predictable pattern.” And the introduction, which spoke about House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy declaring the rise in unaccompanied minors crossing the border a “crisis…created by the presidential policies of this new administration,” has been removed.
The edited version of the article also includes an entirely new section on the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border, admitting this “appears to be more than just a seasonal pattern.”
What is more unusual at this moment is the increase in border crossings by unaccompanied minors, which appears to be more than just a seasonal pattern. This poses a more distinctive challenge for the Biden administration, although it is also possible that there will be a similar drop in crossings by minors during the summer months.
Have Biden administration policies caused this increase? There is no evidence to suggest that this is the case. Organizations working with asylum seekers and unaccompanied children in the San Diego-Tijuana border region tell us that even before President Biden took office smugglers may have been exploiting potential clients by claiming it would be easier to enter the United States once the Trump administration was gone.This is supported by the literature that examines changes in the fees smugglers charge at the U.S.-Mexico border, as well as a DHS report on the same subject.

No matter how much the liberal media wants to ignore the immigration crisis at our borders and claim it doesn’t exist doesn’t make it true.
Twitter users were quick to point out The Washington Post’s flip-flopping on the story.
So which is it? Depends on the day of the week.
