Border officials working under the Biden administration told Fox News that it’s wrong to not call the situation a “crisis.”
“Crisis” is a word the the Biden administration has repeatedly chose not to use to characterize the situation at the border.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council said “a week ago I would not have called this a crisis. Today it meets the definition. We are overwhelmed. We do not have the resources to stop the cartels from bringing in illegal aliens, from bringing in drugs, therefore we are in fact in a crisis.”
Per the report a senior CBP official source who remained anonymous also agreed with Judd, saying “the president understands it is a crisis which is why he told migrants ‘don’t come over.'”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently said “It doesn’t matter what you call it. It is an enormous challenge.”
She then added “we don’t feel the need to, you know, play games with what it’s called.”
Psaki was also asked last week if the word “crisis” would be appropriate.
She replied “I don’t think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed is challenging, what we have conveyed is a top priority for the president.”
