Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, wrongfully told reporters Thursday that President Joe Biden “has done the work” to secure the southern U.S. border.
According to Breitbart, in the White House briefing room, Jean-Pierre answered a question regarding the end of Title 42, which allows U.S. authorities to turn away migrants due to pandemic emergencies.
After taking office, President Biden issued a slew of executive orders that rescinded many of President Trump’s policies, including the border wall construction project. Title 42 was one of the only enforcement tools that the Biden administration has retained.
Jean-Pierre claimed that Biden had “secured record funding” for border security, while the Trump administration had “gutted” the immigration system.
Additionally, she accused Republicans of harming border security by refusing to pass “comprehensive immigration reform.”
On Twitter, Jean-Pierre was criticized for her comments, as noted by FOX News.
Biden has never even visited the border in his half a century of political service. Recently, he explained that “there are more important things going on” rather than going to the border.
Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is being rightfully called out for her outrageous statement about Joe Biden’s work on the border security crisis. Despite Biden’s lack of concrete action – not the mention his half-century of political service without ever visiting the border in person – Jean-Pierre said that the work has already been done by the president. It is a clear attempt to cover up and downplay the border chaos, and it is nothing short of disgraceful. Public outcry has rightfully been mounting over border issues, as the Biden administration gears up to end Title 42 – which, by the way, would have detrimental effects on our country.
