During Tuesday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki suggested former President Trump is to blame for the current surge and chaos at the border.
Psaki told reporters that Biden “is taking the challenge head on” by “building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system.”
She then suggested Trump is to blame for the current “situation” at the border, citing “destructive” policies.
“After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system,” Psaki claimed. “That’s our objective. After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border – something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration.”
“And wanted to provide a couple of data, pieces of data you may have seen, but they’ve come out since the last time we had a briefing in here,” she added.
