On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that President Joe Biden can’t end the border crisis “until we fix the system,” adding that she didn’t believe Republicans were doing anything to fix the problem.
Psaki: ‘Why Don’t You Join Us And Be A Part Of The Solution’
A reporter said to Psaki, “We now have another group of migrants that has crossed the southern border of Mexico, could end up on the U.S. southern border within the next month or so. So, does the White House believe the message of deterrence — ‘The border is closed; do not come’ — is working?”
Psaki replied, “The White House believes that — and the President believes that our immigration system is incredibly broken. And we saw a surge — we’ve certainly seen a surge of migrants come to the border recently.”
Psaki tacked on, “And we’ve seen them over Dem- — across Democratic and Republican Presidents.”
When the White House press secretary was asked further about what Biden might do to address the ongoing border crisis, particularly since Congress hasn’t stepped up to do anything, she said, “Well, we would argue that — for all of those Republicans who are standing at the border and giving speeches about how broken the system is: Why don’t you join us and be a part of the solution instead of relying on speeches?”
“Because we can work together and get immigration reform passed and make the system work and make it operational.” Psaki said. “We can have border restrictions that make sense.”
On his very first day in office, Biden reversed several Trump policies relating to the border and immigration.
Among them, Biden ended Trump’s National Emergency Declaration – a move that allowed Trump to divert money from the Defense Department to build the wall.
