The situation at the border is bad. In fact, it’s probably much worse than we even know because the Biden administration keeps talking about transparency while delivering the most opaque border crisis picture we’ve seen in modern history. Their methods of suppressing news and facts are so draconian, one might think this was North Korea or Iran.
This is America, but it’s Joe Biden’s America and therefore truth is scarce when it comes to situations like the current one at the border.
Senator Ted Cruz and a group of his fellow members from Capitol Hill went to visit the various migrant facilities, and what they reported is beyond troubling. He shared some of his insights Sunday morning with Fox Business show host Maria Bartiromo.
Due to President Biden’s policies, the situation on the border is the worst I’ve ever seen.

“We spent a day and a half down at the border and I’ll tell you, it is bad,” he said. “I’ve been to the border many, many times. It is the worst I’ve ever seen it. It is a full-blown crisis. Last month, the month of February, we had over 100,000 illegal aliens crossing over. Roughly 30,000 of them were unaccompanied minors, kids.”
This aspect of the problem—unaccompanied minors—is likely the reason for the media blackout. They pose the greatest challenge because of a combination of restrictions and unavoidable conflicts. They can only be held for 72-hours before being turned over to placement services which are already far overloaded. They cannot be released to their own recognizance because they’re children, which is also why they cannot be deported.
“Just today, the Biden administration has over 16,000 children in custody,” Cruz continued. “We went and toured the Biden cages. You know, for four years we heard Democrats and the media talking about kids in cages under President Trump. Joe Biden has built more cages, the cages are bigger, and they’re more full.”
Both mainstream media and Democratic politicians have struggled to keep the situation under wraps. They do not want it known that the Biden policies and even his sheer presence in the Oval Office is what has caused this crisis, so they keep pointing back to the Trump administration as the cause. But during the Trump administration, the border facilities never put up the type of numbers we’re seeing today.
“The Donna Facility is this giant tent city that they’ve built,” Cruz said. “It’s massive. It’s designed to hold 1000 people but under Covid restrictions its capacity is 250. It right now has over 4000 people in it. It is at a 1500% capacity, and that meant you saw in these cages children, little boys and little girls side-by-side.”
Project Veritas leaked the first images from the facility last week. As more images and the first potentially accurate statistics make their way out, mainstream media continues to avoid the topics. This rings hypocritical as they have heralded the need for Covid restrictions incessantly. Now, any discussion of Covid restrictions at the border remain unreported other than from a handful of right-leaning news outlets.
“They’re not six feet apart,” he said, referring to the thousands of children he saw packed into cages. “They’re not three feet apart. They’re not even six inches apart. They’re lying on the floor, there are no beds. They’re lying on the floor side-by-side. They’re covered with aluminum floor emergency blankets.”
With Democrats in charge of the House, Senate, and White House, it’s doubtful that anything will be done to fix the problem. Nevertheless, having Ted Cruz and others revealing the truth may be fuel for pressure to be applied to the White House.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report has appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. One of our YouTube accounts was banned and another has been suspended. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancelation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects. These questions are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting cancelled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $5300 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
Join fellow patriots as we form a grassroots movement to advance the cause of conservatism. The coronavirus crisis has prompted many, even some conservatives, to promote authoritarianism. It’s understandable to some extent now, but it must not be allowed to embed itself in American life. We currently have 11,000+ patriots with us in a very short time. If you are interested, please join us to receive updates.
