The Biden administration has been on defense more than they likely expected.
Especially when it comes to Biden’s atrocious immigration policies.
And now, a Fox News reporter caused the White House press secretary to meltdown over this one question.
Joe Biden has thrown his press secretary, Jen Psaki, to the wolves.
Psaki has the unenviable job of trying to explain Biden’s disastrous policies to the press, and the one she struggles to explain the most is immigration.
It seems Biden believed the best course of action on immigration was to undo and reverse everything Trump did, but that doesn’t appear to be working very well for him.
The surge of illegals at the border trying to enter the United States is unprecedented.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy, not one to shy away from asking the tough questions, pressed Psaki on this issue, but instead of answering him, she melted down.
Doocy asked, “You’ve been telling migrants from right there for a month now, all the way back to February 10 that now is not the time to come, but they are coming in bigger numbers every day. So do you have a messaging problem?”
In response to Doocy, Psaki said, “Well, I would say that in the last administration, we had a morality problem and children were being pulled from the arms of their parents and kids were being sent back on a treacherous journey, and that’s not the approach of this administration.”
Psaki, like most in the Biden administration, is spewing falsities.
Biden and the Democrats didn’t think out their messaging when they started signaling that the border was open for business in the middle of a pandemic.
The Trump administration put children in detention facilities per the Flores decision from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, using the same facilities used by the Obama administration.
Back during former President Trump’s term, the press called these facilities cages and incessantly wrote about how Trump was putting “kids in cages.”
The tables have turned, and now the press is calling those cages “overflow facilities.”
Ironic how as soon as Biden took office, the “cages” were no longer cages.
But Doocy didn’t stop there and went on to question Psaki about why the administration, who is so vocal about protecting everyone from COVID, is now allowing illegals into America with no COVID tests.
The standards for entering the U.S. illegally are worlds away from the ones being used to reopen schools.
Doocy asked if “the Border Patrol unions and the HHS unions [had] been easier to work with than the teachers unions.”
Psaki had nothing more than a mocking laugh for Doocy, to which he responded, “It’s not funny.”
Even the Left is beginning to acknowledge the disaster at the border, and Doocy is right; it is not funny.
This did not have to happen, and the Biden administration knows that, but they refuse to admit it.
