During a press conference Monday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre made the claim that the southern border was not “open.” In addition to this statement, the White House Official found it necessary to put forward that those who claim otherwise are guilty of spreading “misinformation”. The Biden administration has been under fire recently for their mishandling of the border crisis and the allowance of unprecedented amounts of unvetted and illegal aliens across the border. These Jean-Pierre comments come in the wake of the upcoming expiration of Title 42, a public health rule passed in March of 2020 that, when it expires, officials predict will lead to an additional 9,000 – 15,000 new migrants a day.
