In Brief:

While headlines worldwide discuss the American southern border crisis, the White House continues to spout lies in a desperate attempt to bolster the Biden Administration’s management. 

The Background: 

Twitter-verse had a heyday recently, after listening to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claim that illegal immigration was down 90% thanks to Biden’s immigration policies. When a reporter asked how Biden was planning to handle the illegal immigration issue, Jean-Pierre insisted that Biden was already putting forth the needed efforts to fix the “broken” system and has done so since his first day in office. 

Jean-Pierre stated:

"In the meantime, he has tools that he's used to make sure we do this. We actually deal with the immigration system in a humane way, in a way that actually deals with what we're seeing at the border. And that's why you've seen the parolee program be so successful. When it comes to illegal immigration, you've seen it come down by more than 90%. And that's because of this, the actions that this president has taken."

She continued: ​​"But we know that more action needs to be taken. So it has to be legislative action. We're going to continue to call Congress to do that. And so, this is important to this president. On day one, on day one, he put forth a legislation to move forward on this." 

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted, "This is a blatant lie from the Biden administration. This is the worst border crisis on record. They created the crisis, and now they are denying it exists."
