Jen Psaki’s Ridiculous Spin After Biden Claimed He’s Been to the Southern Border
Biden told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “I’ve been there before,” when asked if he will visit the region as the crisis at the southern border continues, adding, “I guess I should go down. But the whole point of it is I haven’t had a whole hell of a lot of time to get down.”
Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy pressed Psaki on Friday why Biden would claim to have done a border visit when it appears the only time he visited a border area was for a campaign stop in 2008 in El Paso, Texas that only saw him drive by on his way north to Mesilla, New Mexico.
“He does not need a visit to the border to know what a mess was left by the last administration,” Psaki said, further noting Biden’s past trips to Central American countries to address the issue of immigration.
Everything Biden and his top people are saying about the border is a bald-faced lie
From President Joe Biden on down, the administration is telling nonstop, bald-faced lies about the border crisis — while trying to stop the media from reporting the truth.
Biden insists the surge is normal, when it’s setting records. He insists it’s not because of his words and policies, when common sense, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and the migrants themselves say the opposite. He also pretends it’s all his predecessor’s fault, with yet more lies about what President Donald Trump did.
And he claims most illegal crossers are being turned back, when officials on the ground report the reverse.
Oh, and he calls his approach compassionate, when it in fact brings suffering through the long trip north and then in this country, with children stuck in horribly overcrowded facilities while released adults swarm overwhelmed border towns. A 9-year-old girl drowned in the Rio Grande last week because of the message Biden is sending: If you get into the US, you can stay….
…Trump had made significant progress toward securing the border, only for Biden to halt construction on his wall and end the “Remain in Mexico” policy. He also proposed a path to citizenship for the millions of illegal immigrants already here and reaffirmed the Obama Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
And Biden made an exception for Trump’s Title 42 order, allowing children to stay despite the health crisis of the pandemic. Indeed, the administration is releasing COVID-positive migrants by the dozens into the interior.
You can see why Team Biden has moved to restrict media access, even though left-leaning reporters focus mainly on the feds’ failure to help the migrants enough.
