A bizarre press conference

The press conference began with Karine Jean-Pierre talking about a lot of matters other than what most troubled the leftist media: the border policy reversal of Joe Biden. It isn't until about 8:03 of the tape that Karine the incompetent got her first question on the reports that Joe Biden is going to continue building the wall. Her answer sparked anxiety by the leftist press corps:
These funds were appropriated in 2019 under Republican leadership and the president is required to follow the law.
Then the questions focused on Joe Biden's promise to never build any wall.
Then questions about the Mayorkas statement:
REPORTER: "If the border wall is ineffective, why is the DHS secretary saying that it's 'necessary' to prevent unlawful entries into the United States?"
KARINE: I have not seen that."
"There is presently an acute and immediate need to construct physical barriers and roads in the vicinity of the border of the United States in order to prevent unlawful entries into the United States in the project areas pursuant to sections 102(a) and 102(b) of [the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996]," Mayorkas said.

Which was an obvious contradiction to Biden's Press Secretary saying that Biden doesn't believe in the wall, he is doing it because he has to. Yet Karine just kept repeating those talking points as leftist kept asking if there wasn't a way around it. I think after today there is little doubt about the left wanting the border wide open. The real reason for this change in policy may lie in northern cities like NYC and Chicago which are rebelling against Biden's open border policy. It is after all an election year.
The last to ask a question was Fox's Peter Doocy who asked why Biden is now so concerned about the law when he challenged so many others, as in all the environmental laws Biden waived or the "Remain in Mexico Policy" that a judge ordered Biden to enforce though Biden fought it tooth & nail.
