    White House: Joe Biden Does Not Need to Visit Southern Border

    White House: Joe Biden Does Not Need to Visit Southern Border

    by CHARLIE SPIERING 22 Oct 2021

    The White House argued Friday that Joe Biden did not need to visit the Southern border to address the ongoing migration crisis.

    “He does not need a visit to the border to know what a mess was left by the last administration,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during the daily briefing.

    Psaki responded to Biden’s claim during a CNN town hall on Thursday that he had visited the border during his political career but suggested he did not have the time as president to do so.

    He said:

    I’ve been there before, and I haven’t — I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the — but the whole point of it is: I haven’t had a whole hell of lot of time to get down. … But I plan on — now, my wife, Jill, has been down.

    Psaki argued Biden has visited Mexico ten times during his lengthy political career and was well aware of the issues at the border.

    She also claimed there was “reporting” that Biden visited the border in 2008, despite zero evidence that he has ever been there.

    “There’s been reporting that he did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008,” Psaki said.

    An NBC reporter noted that Biden came close to the border during a campaign trip to New Mexico but never made a border related stop.

    @POTUS again said last night he's "been there before" when asked about going to the border. Last time I found where he went close was a 2008 campaign trip to NM. We landed in El Paso and drove along for a stretch.

    The schedule called for wheels down around noon, an hour drive to Mesilla, NM, and later back to El Paso five hours later.Other than a motorcade ride at times near the border, there was no specific border-related stop

    Unbelievable that she can say that with a straight face.
