Not only did Biden ask Saudi Arabia to postpone oil cuts until after the election, now it’s been revealed that he’s also pressuring border mayors to not declare a state of emergency over their cities being overrun with illegals coming through his open border, because it might make Biden look bad.

This took the lead on the New York Post’s front page today:

Here’s more via the Post:

The White House pressured the Democratic mayor of El Paso, Texas, to not declare a state of emergency over the city’s migrant crisis due to fear it would make President Biden look bad, The Post has learned.

At least three of the El Paso City Council’s eight members have urged Mayor Oscar Leeser to issue an emergency declaration in response to the thousands of migrants who’ve filled the city’s shelters and are being housed in local hotels, sources familiar with the matter said.

But Leeser admitted during a private phone conversation last month that he’d been directed otherwise by the Biden administration, one of the officials told The Post.

“He told me the White House asked him not to,” Councilmember Claudia Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez also said Leeser has repeatedly assured her that he’d declare a state of emergency “if things got worse” — without saying what that meant.

US Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), whose district covers rural areas and border towns near El Paso, also said he heard similar accounts from other city officials.

“It is a sleight of hand what the administration is doing — pressuring the local government to not issue a declaration of emergency, to say as if everything is going OK,” he said.

Gonzales also alleged that the White House has done “the same thing in other parts of my district,” which have also seen huge numbers of migrants seeking refuge.

Leeser declined to speak with The Post but said in a prepared statement, “I don’t bow to pressure from any side.”

“I make decisions based on current circumstances and in the best interest of the citizens of El Paso,” the statement said.

Leeser also praised the federal government for providing his city with “critical” assistance.

At a Sept. 27 City Council meeting, Mayor Leeser also addressed the issue, saying Congresswoman Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) had urged him not to declare a State of Emergency, adding: “The White House has asked, at this point, for us not to do that and they’ll continue to work with us and continue to give us … money through [the] Federal Emergency Management Agency.”

Oh I see. This isn’t just a request from Biden’s White House, it’s a quid pro quo and it’s a bribe. It’s also implied municipal blackmail because either Lesser does what they want or they cut off funds to his city.

Talk about desperate. Biden is so under the gun over the border that he’s now threatening and bullying his own mayors to ignore their illegals crisis, which is his fault, because it will make him look bad.

This should be a huge scandal in the media, but I doubt you’ll read this New York Post story anywhere else other than right-wing news sites like mine. Once again the garbage media earns their name…
