White House Caught Making Spurious Claim About Biden Border Visit

Linkedin Share

Throughout this first term of the Biden presidency, one of the most salient and obvious complaints within the nation is the administration’s lack of urgency when it comes to the issue of immigration.

First, there was the appointing of Vice President Kamala Harris as “border czar” – a duty that she disdained so greatly that the VP didn’t even visit the border for 90 days after receiving the assignment.

And now, months later, the White House is making some rather unconvincing claims about President Joe Biden’s border negligence.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday insisted that President Biden has been to the U.S.-Mexico border, despite no record of him having been there — even as vice president.

The comments came in response to an inquiry from Fox News’ Peter Doocy on whether the president had RSVP’d Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s invite to the border.

“We know the president’s never been down to the border. The possible next speaker says that he wants [Biden] to go with him. So, is he going to?” Doocy asked.

“He’s been there. He’s been to the border. And since he took office…,” Jean-Pierre responded before Doocy interjected: “When did he go to the border?”

Madam Press Secretary did not have an answer.

Jean-Pierre evaded the question and instead blamed Republicans for their supposed unwillingness to work with the president on fixing immigration and securing the border.

“They’re doing political stunts. That’s what they want to do. That’s how they want to take care of the situation,” Jean-Pierre said.

There is no evidence that Biden has visited the border during his presidency at all.
