WATCH: Psaki says “We are not going to send children under the age of 18…back on this treacherous journey”

Appearing on Fox News with Chris Wallace this morning, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said “our objective is to take a different approach from the last administration. We are not going to send children under the age of 18, kids under the age of 18, back on this treacherous journey.”

“They are fleeing challenging economic circumstances, hurricanes, prosecution in some scenarios, it does not mean they get to stay in the United States, it means their cases are adjudicated and we want to treat them humanely, make sure they’re in a safe place while their cases are adjudicated, that’s what we’re talking about here,” she added.
