Psaki Whines about GOP Border Criticism: ‘We’re a Little Tired’

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki aired her grievances on Republican criticism of the border crisis in a press conference, trying to take up the case that President Joe Biden’s policies haven’t created total chaos with a flood of illegal immigration and smuggled drugs.

“We know that the vice president has been tasked with addressing the root causes of migration,” Shelby Talcott, a reporter for the Daily Caller, asked. “Can the administration just detail some tangible examples of the actions in addressing the root causes of migration of having an actual impact?”

Psaki listed off many things that could be done, but does not offer any tangible examples.

“This is going to be a long-term effort and what the focus is on is addressing group causes like corruption, like economic circumstances,” Psaki dodged. “It also includes providing assistance and engaging closely with these leaders on what steps can be taken.”

Psaki did not elaborate on any of these ideas, or give examples of who Vice President Kamala Harris may be working with to stymie the flow of immigrants to the border.

Instead, she blamed our “broken immigration system,” then went on to finger-wag at Republicans.

“There are a lot of Republicans out there giving speeches about how outraged they are about the situation at the border; not many who are putting forward solutions or steps that we could take,” she said.

“So, we’re a little tired of the speeches,” she concluded. “We’d like to… [work] together to address this problem that has not been partisan in the past.”

Republicans have offered solutions to this problem before—such as building a wall and closing the border itself—only to face extreme partisan backlash.

There has been no confirmation that Harris has made moves to secure the U.S.-Mexico border, nor that she has been to the border.

But she has been to Europe now, so maybe she’ll go soon.
