Last week, The Associated Press (AP), one of the world’s largest press organizations, issued guidelines to restrict employees from using the word “crisis” when referring to the ongoing border crisis. at the US-Mexico border. However, the word was fully accepted under the Trump administration, the Blaze reported.

President Joe Biden, his administration and top Democrats have refused to admit the ongoing migration crisis on the southern border is a “crisis.” The AP news agency also agreed with the White House on this view.

In a memorandum released Friday (March 26), AP Vice President and Editor-in-Chief of AP Standards John Daniszewski explained that reporters should use “accurate and neutral language” when writing describe the immigration crisis – and don’t call it a “crisis”.

According to Daniszewski, the surge in illegal immigration at the border amid a pandemic does not match the definition of a “crisis”. He wrote:

“Current news event – the sharp increase in unaccompanied minors to [border] – is a problem for border officials, a political challenge for the President. Biden and is a dire situation for many migrants making the journey, but it doesn’t fit the dictionary’s classic definition of a crisis. According to the dictionary, a “crisis” means: “A turning point in the course of anything; critical or critical time, period or event ”OR“ the moment or condition involves great danger or trouble, often causing a threat that leads to unpleasant consequences, for example: a economic crisis.


Therefore, we should avoid, or at least, be very cautious, considering the present situation [on the frontier] as a crisis, even though we may cite other papers by using use this language.

If we use the word “crisis”, we need to ask what and who. There could be a humanitarian crisis if the number of [migrants] grows so large that officials cannot hold these people in safe or clean conditions. Migrants may face humanitarian crises in their home countries. In theory, there could be a security or border crisis if officials lose control of the border, allowing large numbers of people to move in and out of the country unobstructed. In general, though, avoid exaggeration when calling anything a crisis or emergency.

Mr. Daniszewski added that reporters should “avoid images related to wars or natural disasters, which can depict migrants [leading to] a negative, harmful effect.”

The AP Vice President instructed that some words should be avoided to describe migrants such as: “Avoid words that are sensuous, such as violent attacks, [to like] tidal waves, floods, surges, aggression. , army [emigration], walk, sneak in and sneak in ”.

So what about under the Trump administration?
On the other hand, the AP has freely used the word “crisis” to describe the sharp rise of migrants in the Trump administration. Here are some of the AP articles:

July 2018: The judge blames Mr. Trump, Congress for the immigration crisis.
June 2019: The House of Representatives passes the bill to make emergency funding for the migrant care crisis.
October 2019: Immigration officials say the US-Mexico border crisis is not over yet.
June 2018: Ivanka Trump stays silent for days as the border crisis wanes

Although the AP issued descriptive restrictions on an increase in migrants at the border under the Biden administration, Border Patrol data clearly shows that a migrant crisis is underway. .

NBC News reports, over the past 30 days, the U.S. Border Patrol has averaged 5,000 undocumented immigrants a day, according to a senior Border Patrol official on Friday. This figure is on track to break records for monthly border crossers under the Trump administration.

In May 2019, under Mr. Trump, more than 144,000 undocumented immigrants were caught by the Border Patrol, marking the highest level in 12 years.
