Psaki Blames Trump For Border Crisis Under Biden

Psaki: “We are trying to work through what was a dismantled and unprepared system because of the role of the last administration”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki blamed the current treatment of children at the border on the Trump administration, despite the escalating border crisis under President Biden resulting in migrant facilities being overwhelmed, with one facility reaching 729% capacity.

“There were lawyers who interviewed some children that were in facilities,” reporter Yamiche Alcindor said. “The children described sleeping on the floor, being hungry, not seeing the sun for days. How is that acceptable for the Biden administration to keep children in those sorts of conditions, given the fact that you said you were an administration that was going to be more humane than the previous one?”

“We are trying to work through what was a dismantled and unprepared system because of the role of the last administration,” Psaki responded. “It’s going to take some time, but we are very clear-eyed about what the problems are and very focused on putting forward solutions.”

Psaki’s claim that the inability to handle the crisis at the border is a result of the previous administration contradicts that Biden’s policies have incentivized mass illegal immigration, setting the numbers on pace to be greater than 2018, 2019, and 2020 combined.

Psaki also claimed that the system at the border was “dismantled and unprepared” because of the Trump administration. However, President Biden removed the Trump administration’s emergency declaration at the border, which was put in place to allow more funding to be allocated towards border security.

The reporter continued to question Psaki, saying, “And I understand the idea of these facilities not being desired by children, but children being hungry, sleeping on the floor, not being allowed outside for days at a time, why is that acceptable to go on, even for one more day? Why is that something that’s not being outlawed right now? How is the administration not stopping that today?”

“Well, Yamiche, it’s not acceptable. But I think the challenge here is that there are not that many options,” Psaki responded, ignoring the option of securing the border to prevent the main cause of facilities being overwhelmed.

Youngkin Replaces State’s Department of Equity and Inclusion with Anti-CRT Leaders

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town

Move over ‘Critical Race Theory’ there’s a new Sheriff in town. Newly elected Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin just ripped the roof off of Virginia’s “woke” elite. Youngkin completely gutted the employees of the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and then rebuilt it, filling the positions with reasonable individuals.

Christopher Rufo tweeted, “Glenn Youngkin has asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign and tapped anti-critical race theory leader Angela Sailor to lead the department. In her first move, Sailor eliminated the word ‘equity’ and replaced it with ‘opportunity.”

Youngkin asked all of the state’s DEI employees to resign, then put Sailor in charge to lead the department. Sailor is a former policy expert at The Heritage Foundation;. Having replaced the word ‘equity’ for ‘opportunity’ at the department, Sailor is now formally the DOI “Director of Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusion.”

Citizen Free Press reports “Youngkin also issued an executive order to refocus the DEI office, tasking Sailor and her staff to work on economic opportunity, cooperation among religious groups, promoting ‘free speech and civil discourse’ at colleges and universities, and ensuring that Virginia’s history curriculum is ‘honest, objective, and complete.”

Rufo’s tweet included a link to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch which reported “Former Gov. Ralph Northam created the state’s Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2019 in the aftermath of the blackface scandal that nearly ended his term. The office has been unstaffed since its former chief and her four staffers, who served at the will of the governor, were not asked to stay in their jobs.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

Youngkin’s first executive order signed Saturday seeks to ban “inherently divisive” concepts from Virginia classrooms.

In recent blog posts for The Heritage Foundation, Sailor said that lessons arguing that “America is systemically racist,” are “the textbook definition of racism.”

“No one would argue that children shouldn’t be thoroughly taught about the evils of racism, slavery, and segregation that happened in this country,” she wrote in July in a piece titled, “Schools Hiding Behind Diversity and Inclusion Rhetoric to Spew Critical Race Theory Vile.”

“But [critical race theory] ignores the hundreds of thousands of lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War to end slavery, the long struggle of the civil rights movement to end segregation and win equality, and the reality that the nation has made great progress.”

Sen. Sinema Appears To Quickly Pull A U-Turn After Seeing Biden

Published

Joe Biden
Kyrsten Sinema

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) – who dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Democrats’ election reform legislation by refusing President Biden’s push to reform Senate filibuster rules – appears to have avoided Biden as he spoke to reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats to the legislation.

In a video posted on YouTube, as Biden speaks to reporters, Sinema can be seen emerging from a Senate room in the background. As soon as Sinema appears to see Biden, she turns around and walks in the other direction.

Under current Senate rules, at least 60 senators would need to support Biden’s election reform legislation for it to pass. With the 50-50 split in the Senate, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the bill for it to have any chance of passing. In order to bypass this, Biden has pushed for eliminating the filibuster, which would effectively allow Democrats to ram through their legislation.

On Thursday, Sinema announced that she did not support eliminating the filibuster to allow the bills to pass through the Senate.

“There’s no need for me to restate my longstanding support for the 60-vote threshold to pass legislation. There’s no need for me to restate its role in protecting our country from wild reversals of federal policy,” Sinema said, according to Fox News. “This week’s harried discussions about Senate rules are but a poor substitute for what I believe could have and should have been a thoughtful public debate at any time over the past year.”

“But what is the legislative filibuster, other than a tool that requires new federal policy to be broadly supported by senators, representing the broader cross-section of Americans… Demands to eliminate this threshold from whichever party holds the fleeting majority amount to a group of people separated on two sides of a canyon, shouting that solution to their colleagues,” she continued.

“These bills help treat the symptoms of the disease, but they do not fully address the disease itself. And while I continue to support these bills, I will not support separate actions that worsen the underlying disease of division affecting our country,” Sinema added.

“Some have given up on the goal of erasing our divisions and uniting Americans. I have not,” Sinema stated. “I’ve worked hard to demonstrate in my public service, the value of working with unlikely allies to get results.”
