Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, downplayed the surge of illegal migrants at the border, stating it is not unusual and fluctuates seasonally.

However, reports show record numbers of apprehensions, with over 12,600 encounters in 24 hours.

Jean-Pierre attributed the situation to ongoing negotiations in Congress for additional funding, blaming Republicans for the influx.

“What we’re seeing here at the border, the migration flow — increased migration flow, certainly … it ebbs and flows,” Karine Jean-Pierre said.

“We’re at a time of the year where we’re seeing more at the border and it’s not unusual.”

“So, obviously, we’re having those negotiation conversations [in Congress] to get more funding because we understand — the President understands that we need to do more.”

She also mentioned the need to counter misinformation spread by smugglers.

“Also — you know, is important is the message that we have to send to — to smugglers. Right? We have to be — be very, very mindful because they also put out misinformation. So, we try to be mindful there as well.”

Critics argue that Biden’s policies are incentivizing migration and note the significant number of migrants brought into the country.

In 2022, nearly 3.2 million migrants were brought in, impacting the country’s demographics and economy.
