Biden administration coordinator for the southwestern border on the National Security Council Roberta Jacobson indirectly admitted during a Wednesday press conference that the current border crisis is a result of the Biden administration’s pro-migrant policies.
When asked about the correlation of a massive surge in illegal migration with the exit of President Donald Trump and the inauguration of open-borders advocate Joe Biden, Jacobson admitted that the two events were related.
“Well, first of all, one of the things I think is important is we’ve seen surges before, surges tend to respond to hope, and there was a significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of, you know pent up demand,” Jacobson said. “So I don’t know whether I would call that a coincidence, but I certainly think the idea that a more humane policy would be in place may have driven people to make that decision.”
When asked if her use of the word “hope” meant that she believed the current border surge was a good thing, Jacobson replied, “I don’t think that’s what I just said, I think it’s a reflection of how migrants feel at a particular time.”
Jacobson also noted that the administration plans to send a staggering $4 billion to Central American communities which are “most likely” to send migrants in a desperate bid to stop the migrant crisis.
“What you’ll see is that 4 billion dollars in a Central American, Northern Triangle strategy, will be part of our foreign assistance request, and we’ll focus on the things we know, that work,” Jacobson said.
She added, “We know how to get money to communities that are most likely to send migrants but also that are suffering the greatest effects of two hurricanes this season, et cetera.”
