White House Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and FOX News White House correspondent Peter Doocy got into a tense exchange on Thursday after Doocy asked one simple question about the results of the Biden administration’s disastrous open-borders immigration policies.
The exchange came as the Biden administration has overseen a nearly unprecedented immigration crisis that they have, at minimum, made no good faith effort to prevent and have aided along in some cases.
This week, the Biden administration Customs and Border Protection agency said that it would do whatever it could do maximize penalties for illegal immigrants crossing the border.
Meanwhile, leaked images revealed today indicate that the Biden administration plans to give illegal immigrants plastic ID cards to further legitimize their presence in the country.
Joe Biden wants to make illegal immigration legal.
We should be spending our tax dollars detaining and deporting illegal immigrants — not giving them ID cards.https://t.co/s8087d52b6

KJP was not happy after Doocy pressed her on the issue.
Doocy: “What do you call it when 10,000 illegals cross the border in a single day.”
Jean-Pierre: “What do you call it when republicans…”
Doocy: You’re not answering
Jean-Pierre: “We’re moving on”

“So, what do you call it here at the White House when 10,000 people illegally cross the border in a single day?” Doocy asked.
“So, what do you call it, Peter, when [the] GOP put forth a — wait, no, no, no, no, no, you can’t,” Jean-Pierre said, talking over Doocy as he attempted to qualify the question.
“You’re answering my question with a question,” Doocy responded.
“I’m answering — OK, we’re going to move on,” Jean-Pierre said as they both started talking over one another.
“Karine, please,” Doocy said.
“No, no, no, we’re moving on,” she declared once again before gesturing to another reporter. “In the back.”
“You said you were stopping the flow at the border. Ten thousand migrants—” Doocy said before being cut off by KJP again.
“Peter, I tried to answer the question, and you stopped me,” Jean-Pierre said before turning to the other reporter once again. “Let’s go.”
