Border Patrol agents slam Karine Jean-Pierre's 'ignorant' claim that illegal immigrants not 'walking' across
The White House's claim that illegal immigrants are not just "walking across the border" has infuriated Border Patrol agents who spoke to Fox News Digital.

EXCLUSIVE: White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre's claim that illegal immigrants aren't just "walking across" the southern border has sparked anger and shock from Border Patrol agents - who witness hundreds of migrants flooding across the border every single day.

"How out of touch can this administration possibly be?" one agent told Fox News. "Well I guess this is a new level."

Jean-Pierre was asked on Monday why migrants are allowed to illegally enter the U.S. without being vaccinated for COVID-19 but an unvaccinated foreign national traveling on a plane is not.

"Somebody unvaccinated comes over on a plane. You say that's not OK. Somebody walks into Texas or Arizona unvaccinated, they're allowed to stay? Why?" Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy asked at the White House press briefing.

"But that's not how it works," Jean-Pierre said.

"That's what's happening," Doocy said. "I know that's not what you guys want to happen. But that is what is happening."

"But that's not — it's not like somebody walks over," Jean-Pierre responded.

Jean-Pierre went on to outline what the administration had done in terms of the border, including more DHS funding and cooperation with other countries -- contrasting it to what she said was the prior administration's focus on building a wall.

"It is not that simple. It's not just that people are walking across the border," she said. "We have a plan in place."

Border Patrol agents are on the frontlines dealing with migrants coming across the border in their droves. Migrants encountered by Border Patrol are generally processed and released into the U.S. often within hours of apprehensions. Meanwhile there are more than half a million illegal immigrants who have evaded Border Patrol this fiscal year alone.

Agents were stunned by the remarks.

"There's only two reasons she said that and that is either she is extremely dumb or she is flat out lying and hopes America is so stupid we would believe her," one agent told Fox News Digital. "18 USC 1001 says it is a Federal Crime to knowingly make false statements to the U.S. Government. Too bad the government is not held to the same standard as the citizenry and that is assuming [Jean-Pierre] is not dumb but just a liar."

A number of agents Fox spoke with were unsure of whether the comments were borne out of what they saw as ignorance or were a deliberate falsehood.

"She is absolutely ignorant to the reality of all the documented footage or just continuing [Homeland Security Secretary] Mayorkas' delusional lie!" another agent said. "This administration must believe that the American people are fools, like their mainstream media comrades!"

"Wow," another said. "It amazes me how so many totally ignorant people are high in government."

Others noted the White House's general reluctance to visit the border itself - President Biden has not visited the border, and Vice President Kamala Harris' last visit was summer 2021.

"Has [Jean-Pierre] EVER visited the actual border to see for herself what is happening? Nope," an agent said.

The comments by agents come a day after National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd accused the administration of deflecting on the issue, and said it shows the White House does not care about the border crisis.

"They don't care that hundreds of thousands of people are dying because of drug overdoses, because of these illegal immigrants that are coming across the borders illegally, that the cartels then create the opportunities. They don't care what is currently happening. They know that it's not hurting them. So they're going to continue to lie to the American public," he said.

The controversy comes as the border came close to another 200,000 migrant encounters in July, the fifth month in a row where the numbers have either approached or beaten the 200,000 level.

There have so far been more than two million migrant encounters this fiscal year, exceeding the record-setting 1.7 million hit in fiscal year 2021. While some are returned via Title 42 public health restrictions -- which the White House is seeking to abolish -- most are currently being released into the U.S.

The Biden administration has come under fire for its "root cause" strategy of targeting what it believes are the drivers of migration, like poverty and violence in Central America. Republicans have instead blamed the administration for fueling the crisis with its stopping of Trump-era border policies like wall construction and the "Remain-in-Mexico" program, as well as lax interior enforcement.

The Biden administration has noted its moves to reduce asylum times and a recent anti-smuggling campaign. But it has repeatedly said that its approach is a long-term strategy and will not lead to results in the short-term -- a claim which Jean-Pierre repeated on Monday.

"We have a plan in place. This is not like switching the lights on. Right?" she said. "This is going to take a process. We are fixing a broken system that was actually left by the last administration."

Add her sexual orientation to Biden's "diversity" quota.

When Peter Doocy asked her to explain how 1 MILLION Fentanyl pills made it across the AZ border at Nogales in one week when the border is allegedly closed, she had the audacity to say that they're securing the southern border. Before that, Mayorkas had repeatedly stated that the border IS secure and closed.

I sure hope so, Vic. Around 300 people per DAY are being POISONED by China/Mexico Fentanyl every week. Mexican cartels are making billions of dollars a year on killing us. Now, they created "Rainbow Fentanyl" to attract children who think it's candy. These poison pills look like Sweet Tarts and Star Bursts. They even manufacture it to look like colorful sidewalk chalk.

Isn't it amazing that China is now sending Fentanyl to the US? It seems like everything short of a nuclear strike. There is no fear of the US.

Those cartels are more powerful than the Mexican government. We now have them controlling much of our border and it's all thanks to Susan & Joe.

The CCP didn't kill enough of us with Covid, so they're ramping up the Fentanyl shipments to Mexico.

Mexico has always been a corrupt country. I have relatives and friends who live there, and I've spent a lot of time there in the past.

They don't, because politicians and the media ... including FNC ... continue to wrongly and stupidly label these poisonings as ODs. You don't even need to ingest one of these pills. Even touching the "dust" from them with a bare hand can kill you.

In 2020 the DEA issued a report on Fentanyl and the main sources were Mexico and China with India becoming a new player. 

The CBP just confiscated 50,000 lethal doses of Fentanyl in Louisville that came in from India.

I didn't see where you mentioned India in the fentanyl being shipped to the US. Since they are supposedly an ally that buys oil from weapons and oil from Russia and is now joining China and Russia in war games, one has to wonder how much of an ally are they? Add to that a huge supplier of illegal fentanyl to the US.

Fresh water is already scarce in China as many of the rivers and lakes have dried up in an unprecedented drought in China. 

In fact, they have closed numerous factories because of the lack of water. 

It's been all over the media.

That doesn't alter the fact that tens of millions of Chinese-made Fentanyl pills and bags of powder have entered through our open border via Mexican cartels since Biden took office, and that 300 people per day have been poisoned/killed on Biden's watch.

Never said it did alter the fact but added information to it that is a fact as well. Fentanyl is part of the opioid disaster the US faces. Fentanyl came into the US around 2013 and has been a growing problem ever since under three presidents. Indeed much of it comes across the US/Mexican border and the US mail is another way that it comes into the US. In 2018 it killed 20,000 Americans. 

So as you can see I didn't try to alter any facts but added to them to show how long this has been a problem in the US.

In 2018 it killed 20,000 Americans.

And, in FY2021, during Biden's presidency and open borders policy, Fentanyl killed over 100,000 Americans. We still have another month before FY2022 final numbers are in, but those will be high, too.

By the way, I did not say that you altered facts.

And  don't seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation.  The ONLY way it would become a problem for them (Biden and the Bidenites) is when they lose a family member due to this activity.
