Former President Donald Trump blasted President Biden for his handling in creating chaos at the southern border that “could destroy our country,” saying his successor could have prevented the massive border crisis failure if all he did was just “leave it alone.”
The White House on Monday walks back remarks President Biden made over the weekend in referring to the influx surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border as a “crisis,” arguing that he misspoke and that he actually was implying the conditions in Central America that have led to migrants to flee, not the situation regarding minors being held in cramped jail-like detention facilities at the border.
Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), calling him a “dumb son of a bitch” during remarks at a donor retreat gathering over the weekend while vowing to help Republicans win back both chambers of Congress in 2022.
The Biden administration is projecting the number of unaccompanied children crossing the border which has already overwhelmed detention facilities will continue to spiral over the next six months with numbers projected to smash records every month, according to a new report.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has now released its first official photos and B-roll videos from inside two large temporary facilities in Texas where unaccompanied migrant children and families are being held and processed by the Border Patrol, images the Biden Administration has tried to keep in secrecy from letting American public from seeing the surging crisis.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday maintained to characterized the situation at the southern border as a “crisis,” insisting “children presenting at our border who are fleeing violence” is a “circumstance,” despite devasting leaked images showing an overcrowded detention center packed with young migrants.
