WATCH: Biden admin refuses to describe situation at the border a “crisis”

According to a new report from Fox News, while the Biden administration admits a “overwhelming” number of migrants at the southern border, they are doggedly refusing to use the word “crisis” to describe the situation.

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.”

Earlier in the week Psaki was asked 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.”
