Team Biden’s ‘Morality Problem’ on the Border

Jen Psaki admits the policy is to start a flood, but she blames Trump for immoral actions.

A record-breaking 9,500 unaccompanied juveniles illegally crossed the U.S. border in February. These children, most of them teens, are often exploited by coyotes — the seedy men who traffic people and drugs across the border. And these kids were just a sliver of last month’s 100,000 encounters with illegals reported by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Clearly, we have a crisis on our hands, and it’s a moral one at that.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also thinks there’s a moral problem, but that it was former President Donald Trump’s. “In the last administration, we had a morality problem,” Psaki lectured Wednesday. “Children were being pulled from the arms of their parents, and kids were being sent back on a treacherous journey. That’s not the approach of this administration.”

No, the approach of this administration is to fling the doors open wide for unaccompanied minors to be trafficked into this country without limits. Psaki even admitted as much: “We understand that means there will be more kids who are crossing the border. We made a policy decision that was the right, humane step to take.”

Likewise, Southern Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson practically claimed the surge is the policy of the Biden administration. “There was a hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand,” she said Wednesday, “so I don’t know if I would call that a coincidence.” In fact, while speaking in Spanish, Jacobson also said, “The border is not closed.” Only several minutes later did she say in English, “The border is closed.”

She’s almost literally speaking out of both sides of her mouth.

Families often send a teen to the U.S. ahead of them, knowing that our policies favoring chain migration will eventually help them all get here. They’re willing to risk their own children for a better life in America. That doesn’t make the Trump administration “immoral” for closing the border to such shenanigans, and it most certainly doesn’t make the Biden administration moral for incentivizing gang activity and human smuggling.


Update: After we went to press, and just when we thought it couldn’t get any more ridiculous, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proclaimed, “I trust the Biden administration’s policy to be based on humanitarian and love of children rather than political points or red meat for their — for their Republican base.”
