Two Border Patrol agents and their union’s president accused the White House press secretary of lying when she claimed that migrants don’t walk “over” the border, they told Daily Caller News Foundation.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Monday that migrants weren’t walking “over” the border into the U.S. in a tense exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, who asked why unvaccinated Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic isn’t allowed into the U.S. while unvaccinated migrants can cross the border and enter the country.
“There are countless videos of illegal border crossings every single day,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said. “There is countless testimony from eyewitnesses about the rampant lawlessness, but when the administration was caught in its hypocrisy for refusing to allow Novak Djokovic into the U.S. legally because of his vaccination status, it allowed the press secretary to lie by stating people aren’t just walking into the U.S.
Two anonymous Border Patrol agents, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly, told the DCNF they also believed Jean-Pierre lied.
