Must See: Has Joe EVER Visited Southern Border? Psaki Keeps Reporters In Suspense

Written By BlabberBuzz | Friday, 24 September 2021 10:30

White House press secretary Jen Psaki didn't seem to have an answer Wednesday on whether President Biden has ever or will ever visit the southern border to address the illegal immigration crisis surging there currently.

Psaki was asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy during her daily press briefing if the president had "ever been to the southern border" during his nearly 50 years in public office.

"I will have to look back in my history books and check the times he’s been to the southern border," Psaki answered.

"We have been looking all morning," Doocy pressed on, "and we have not found any record of him visiting the border as president, vice president, senator, or even as a concerned citizen."

Doocy later continued, "This is a president who makes a point when there are disasters in this country, like a wildfire or hurricane, to go and see for himself firsthand what the needs are of the local community so he can have an informed POV to make policy. Why doesn’t he go down to Del Rio, Texas, to see what’s going on?"

Doocy was referring to the surge of illegal immigration in recent days in Del Rio, where thousands of migrants who crossed from Mexico are awaiting processing at the International Bridge.

"Well first of all, Peter, I think the situation at the border is the result of a broken system," Psaki replied. "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. … He uses all of his experiences to inform how he governs, how he approaches challenges."

"Has Joe Biden ever been to the border? It’s a question that needs to be answered by the president, who is presiding over the most disastrous border crisis in decades," Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement following the press briefing.

McDaniel added that RNC researchers have similarly been unable to identify any examples of Biden visiting the border.

The U.S. has seen a 500% increase in the number of illegal immigrant crossings with a record-setting 213,534 crossings reported in July alone. Nearly another 209,000 individuals illegally crossed the border in August.

While family units and unaccompanied minors account for roughly 35% of the illegal border crossings, single adults account for more than 64% of those encountered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn told Fox News Wednesday that the Biden administration's crisis at the border “has turned into a debacle.”

"The American people are watching this play out in real time. They are reading some of these Facebook posts and blogs that are being put up by people who live in these border communities."
