In yet another blatant gaslighting effort, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has told the American people that Democrat President Joe Biden has “done more to secure” the U.S. Southern Border “than anyone else.”
The comments from Jean-Pierre come as Democrats are beginning to raise the alarm about the border crisis ahead of the critical 2024 election.
Earlier this week, radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blasted Biden over the border, warning that it is his “weakest issue.”
The open border issue has become a problem for many “sanctuary city” Democrats as illegal aliens have begun flooding their districts.
“Immigration is arguably this administration’s weakest issue,” Ocasio-Cortez told The New York Times in an interview.
“This is one area where our policy is dictated by politics, arguably more so than almost any other.”
AOC claims that Biden is ignoring her recommendations for the border because there is “a fear around just being seen as approving or providing permission structures, or really just the Republican narratives that have surrounded immigration.”
“We also need to examine the root causes of this migration and address that this problem doesn’t start at our border, but it starts with our foreign policy,” she said.
Jean-Pierre responded to AOC’s remarks, saying: “The president has done more to secure the border and to deal with this issue of immigration than anybody else.
“He really has,” she added.
“Look, the president has done what he can from here, from the federal government, from the White House to put forth and manage our border in a safe and humane way, to respect the dignity of every human, as he says all the time, and making sure that our communities are safe.”
Jean-Pierre continued by reading stats from a pre-prepared statement.

Earlier this week, Jean-Pierre used the same tactics to defend Biden against the backlash over his response to the Hawaii wildfires.
As Slay News reported, Jean-Pierre claimed that Biden “reacted in record time” to the disaster.
