Knowing there was no way they could run from it, the White House finally made a statement about the thousands of illegal immigrants filmed camping under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas. In a startling confession, the White House announced that they are unsure how they will process and release the Haitian immigrants but that the Biden administration is tracking the situation. And, to make it worse, the Democrats are unsure just how many migrants there really are.
Taking questions on the matter, Press Secretary Jen Psaki called on Fox News’s Peter Doocy, who asked, “Basic but very important question. You’re telling us that the DHS chief has the most recent numbers about how many of these Haitians under the bridge have been sent back and how many have been released into the US? The DHS chief is telling us that he doesn’t know. So who else can we ask?”
Psaki answered in the usual fashion, “You can certainly ask the Department of Homeland Security. I am confident Peter, I am confident he wanted to have the most up-to-date numbers, and we will venture to get you those, I promised you, this afternoon.”
Wanting an honest answer, Doocy pressed the matter, “Is this an issue of not knowing? Or is this an issue of a lot more people are being released into the US than are being sent out?”
Again, while the White House admitted they don’t know the exact number, Psaki claimed, “That is certainly not the issue. First, I think it’s important to reiterate what I conveyed earlier about what the actual process is. Individuals are expelled under Title 42. If they can’t be expelled under Title 42, they are put into a removal process. If they’re put into a removal process, they’re either transported to an ICE facility or released with a legal document. That legal document includes fingerprints, photos, phone numbers, and addresses in the United States, and a background check. That’s the process that transpires that’s a part of our immigration process, regardless of where you’re coming from.”
Trying his best to get a single answer, Doocy changed his question to if “President Biden’s ever been to the southern border.” He added, “We have been looking all morning, and we cannot find any record of him visiting the border as President, Vice President, Senator, or even as a concerned citizen. Why would that be?”
Not seeing it as President Biden’s fault, Psaki answered, “Well, first of all, Peter, I think the situation at the border is the result of a broken system. And the President certainly relies on his experience. So whether it was the work he did to address root causes as Vice President, his efforts when he was in the Senate to support comprehensive immigration reform, a step that at the time was being done and worked toward in a bipartisan way, something that certainly we think should be the case today.
He uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs how he approaches challenges. And certainly, he looks again at the last four years and the separation of children who are ripped from the arms of their parents as a way he does not want to proceed. So all of his experiences and his time in office, whether the vice president or Senate, inform his approach to issues.”
