Psaki: The Influx of Immigrants ‘Something that Began During and Was … Exacerbated by the Trump Admin’

‘President Biden is taking the challenge head on’


PSAKI: "I wanted to provide a brief update on the situation at our southern border. After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head-on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system. That’s our objective. After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border, something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration. And wanted to provide a couple of data, pieces of data you may have seen, but they’ve come out since the last time we had a briefing in here. At the end of March, there were more than 5,000 children in Customs and Border Protection patrol stations. Today, that number is approximately 600.”
