White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre suggested Thursday on “The View” that the Biden administration is trying to “fix” the immigration system destroyed by former President Trump.
Republicans helped create chaos at the border.
Jean-Pierre told the host of “The View” that the number of people fleeing countries like Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to enter America recently said, “We’ve seen a 121% increase since last year. So we’re talking about places with regimes communists, and they’re trying to leave that communist regime and you see this problem in the western hemisphere… So we have a new type of migration that’s happening.”
He said the Biden administration has been responsible for handling the situation by working with states in troubled areas, but Republican governors have problems.

“All our regional partners are dealing with it. We are talking to them, and we are communicating constantly,” he said. “That’s why the stunt the Republican governors are pulling is so embarrassing.”
Republican governors like Ron DeSantis in Florida have sent migrants to areas popular with liberal politicians in an attempt to put the chaos at the border back in the political spotlight.
Jean-Pierre suggested that the move was “inhumane” because the Trump administration was fueling the problem.
“It’s inhumane because when we try to fix the broken problem, the immigration system that was destroyed by the last administration, they won’t come up with a solution,” Jean-Pierre said. “They use children, they use women and families as a political stunt, as a political tactic because they don’t want a solution.”

Jean-Pierre added, “I want to ask Governor DeSantis, ‘Why? Why are you doing this? Why are you doing this for children? For families? Where is the solution?'”
Jean-Pierre is the latest leader of several Democratic leaders, such as Vice President Kamala Harris and Rep. That’s why Jayapal, D-Wash., is suggesting that Republicans, especially the Trump administration, are to blame for the current crisis at the border.
Harris suggested in a video released Wednesday by Vice that the Biden administration has wasted time and resources on “reconstructing” the immigration system.

“In the previous administration, they destroyed the system that was designed to deal with immigration,” the vice president said.
