White House press secretary Jen Psaki shot back at Donald Trump after former President and other Republican critics beat President Joe Biden for immigration, saying his rhetoric and policies sparked a crisis on the border.
Psaki reacts to Trump
During their press conference on Friday, Psaki responded to Trump after making a statement deciphering his successor’s immigration policies.
“We do not seek advice from former President Trump on immigration policy, which has not only been inhuman but also ineffective over the past four years,” Psaki said, according to The Hill.
“We will find our own way forward, and that includes treating children with humanity and respect,” she added.

Trump Blasts Biden Administration
It did so after Trump released a bubbly statement detailing how exactly Biden caused a crisis on the border.
“Our border is now completely out of control thanks to the disastrous leadership of Joe Biden,” Trump wrote, according to the New York Post.
“A mass incursion of people who shouldn’t be here into the country happens every hour and is getting worse by the minute,” said Trump. “Many have criminal records and many others have and are spreading COVID.”

“Domestic enforcement has stopped – criminals who were once promptly removed by our government are now being released back onto the streets to commit heinous and violent crimes,” he added.

“The spiraling tsunami on the border …”
“The worsening tsunami on the border is overwhelming local communities, draining budgets, pushing hospitals and taking jobs from legal American workers,” he continued. “When I left office, we had reached the safest border in our country’s history.”
“Under Biden, things will soon get worse, more dangerous and out of control than ever before,” said Trump. “He violated his oath of office to uphold our constitution and enforce our laws.”
Later in his statement, Trump said Biden had “given smugglers and human traffickers effective control over our border” and predicted that the border crisis would worsen over time.
“There has never been a time on our southern border like it is happening now, but more importantly, what will happen,” Trump continued.
“Now that Biden has introduced catch-and-release nationwide, illegal immigrants from all over the world will end up on our border and never return,” added the former president. “You can never have a safe border if people crossing illegally are not removed immediately.”
Trump concluded his statement with a warning: “The Biden administration must act immediately to end the border nightmare it has unleashed on our nation. Keep illegal immigration, crime and the China virus out of our country! “
