EXCLUSIVE: White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's claim that illegal immigrants aren’t just "walking across" the southern border has sparked anger and shock from Border Patrol agents – who witness hundreds of migrants flooding across the border every single day.
"How out of touch can this administration possibly be?" one agent told Fox News. "Well I guess this is a new level."
"It is not that simple. It’s not just that people are walking across the border," she said. "We have a plan in place."
Border Patrol agents are on the frontlines dealing with migrants coming across the border in their droves. Migrants encountered by Border Patrol are generally processed and released into the U.S. often within hours of apprehensions. Meanwhile there are more than half a million illegal immigrants who have evaded Border Patrol this fiscal year alone.
Agents were stunned by the remarks.
"There's only two reasons she said that and that is either she is extremely dumb or she is flat out lying and hopes America is so stupid we would believe her," one agent told Fox News Digital. "18 USC 1001 says it is a Federal Crime to knowingly make false statements to the U.S. Government. Too bad the government is not held to the same standard as the citizenry and that is assuming [Jean-Pierre] is not dumb but just a liar."
A number of agents Fox spoke with were unsure of whether the comments were borne out of what they saw as ignorance or were a deliberate falsehood
of course we know why there is denial here... they do NOT want this to be an issue going into the elections. there is nothing to see here.........
watch the stock market. if it stays elevated, then that will help the dems.
Dems would be getting slaughtered in this upcoming election based on performance the last 2 years with them behind the wheel.
Ironically, Biden brags about their biggest accomplishment......saving the planet with the fake anti inflation, fake green energy, fake climate crisis bill which is the area that is and will do the MOST damage to our energy system, economy and consumers.
It's just crony capitalism sponsored by corrupt politicians and government colluding with the green energy business, media and completely hoodwinked environmentalists which WILL severely damage the life blood of every developed countries economy........reliable energy.
The Supreme Court ruling was not something in the control or the Rs this year and that will cost them votes but Trump is killing them......and they have 100% control over that.
Republicans will LOSE alot of votes from those that see it as the party of Trump and specifically when there are Trump endorsed people running.
Like with most things, the damage is being maximized because of the massive number of people that are totally oblivious, and if fact........when you show them the evidence, they do the opposite. The dig in and believe the OPPOSITE of the evidence even more strongly. Human nature, cognitive bias, stubbornness and no desire to change.
sorry, i think you are not correct. i do not think it is trump that is causing the pubs to loose support. it is the abortion issue. too many pub candidates have extreme statements on the abortion issue. and the public does NOT support those extreme positions.
this is the problem with posting extreme statements on social media. when you run for office, folks will use it against you.
abortion is not nearly as important as bidens economic failures, but i know lots of folks that will let the abortion issue sway their views on who to vote for.
I agree that the abortion issue is huge and should have given it more discussion in the previous thread.
the abortion issue is about a decision from the Supreme Court NOT a Republican President or Republican congress that forced this issue on democrats.
governors and those running for positions that write legislation for state laws will have their abortion position scrutinized by pro choice voters.
almost all of them will have life long positions on this topic……that could have recently been more clearly defined to assign an exact time frame when they would apply abortion laws.
trump is not just an opinion on just 1 topic, like abortion. His millions of supporters represent a mindset that applies to all realms that includes violating the Constitution and democratic elections when you lose.
you can strongly justify a pro life position with some dang good, authentic scientific and other reasoning. People that disagree, can still respect you for standing up for your ethical/moral principles.
trump supporters are the complete opposite. There is no ethical or clear thinking/honest justification for what he did after losing the election and continues to this day.
NOT Donald Trump is extremely powerful in the voting booth, much more than FOR Donald Trump.
the choice for the republicans is the most no brainer in history.
1. Continue to stand up for unborn babies and stay true to your ethical standards.
2. if you really do have ethical standards, then stand up for them and shun the dangerous, dishonest, diabolical psychopath, Donald Trump.
hes been turned into an omnipotent hero and victim by those that worship him and defend him.
There are loads of fake issues, lies and bad leaders in our world today on both sides of the isle.
Almost all of them are using political affiliations to appeal to people's tribalism.
The fake climate crisis is a bit different in that the United Nations hijacked climate science in the 1980's. They created the IPCC, which actually rewrote climate history to wipe out the Medieval Warm Period that was this warm 1,000 years ago as well as using a zillion other junk science tactics.
OK, back to the topic which is not even the topic on the thread title but went in this direction to address bear's point.
The majority of Americans see who Trump really is.
In the voting booth, democrats running as NOT Donald Trump will get additional votes again in November. This is the reason for the very weak Joe Biden to win in 2022.
Those who insist that the presidential election was stolen in 2022 are oblivious to this extremely powerful NOT Donald Trump factor which is the real reason for Joe Biden's win.........not election fraud or covering up laptop news.
The only way to get rid of NOT Donald Trump votes for the other side is to get rid of Donald Trump.
