Jean-Pierre Really Stepped In It This Time, Here's How Her Immigration Lies Panned Out
White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre and Fox News's Peter Doocy battled it out late last week in a sieries of individual briefings. In one briefing in particular I think Jean-Pierre slipped on a big immigration lie. At face value, she seems to be arguing that illegals don't walk across the border—Which we know is a lie.
See, at first glance, you would think that she's just covering for Biden like always. In this particular battle, they were discussing how the Biden administration allows thousands of unvaccinated illegals to cross into the US but block legally traveling athletes.
Doocy asked, "How come migrants are allowed to come into this country unvaccinated but world-class tennis players are not?" To which she denied that it's happening. The two were discussing vaccination and immigration and how the White House is okay with some being unvaccinated, but not others.
Doocy followed up with, "so, how is it two different things? Somebody unvaccinated comes over on a plane; you say that’s not okay. If somebody walks into Texas or Arizona unvaccinated; they’re allowed to stay. Why?"
So what they're talking about: a would-be US Open tennis competitor Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the US Open due to travel restrictions into the United States as a result of being unvaccinated against COVID-19.
Jean-Pierre stumbled through a response and tried to dodge answering the real question saying, "so, visa records are confidential under U.S. law. Therefore, the U.S. government cannot discuss the details of individual visa cases. Due to privacy reasons, the U.S. government also does not comment on medical information of individual travelers."
Doocy followed up by asking her again how come some people are just allowed to walk in unvaccinated when legal travelers cannot. Jean-Pierre must have been caught off guard because she fell into stammering all over her words with the only solid thought coming through is that she doesn't believe that is what's happening.

America is in the midst of the greatest mass migration crisis in its history, all of it traceable to White House policies implemented on Inauguration Day 2021. Border Patrol has laid hands on nearly 4 million illegal border crossers in the 19 months since, well over 2 million of them (that we know of) are now living inside America.
The number of migrants drowning in the Rio Grande amid President Biden’s border crisis has gotten so out of control that one Texas town needs a refrigerated truck to store all the bodies.
“Two weeks ago, we had four people that drowned in one day. Now, the next day we had another drowning. The very next day we had another drowning,” Eagle Pass Fire Chief Manuel Mello III told Fox News for a report Monday.
