White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Friday upheld the Biden administration's immigration policies in response to criticism from former President Donald Trump.
The former president in a statement reported Friday derided Biden's newly instated immigration agenda, which includes measures meant to reverse controversial Trump-era policies.
"The spiraling tsunami at the border is overwhelming local communities, depleting budgets, crowding hospitals, and taking jobs from legal American workers," Trump said in a statement. "When I left office, we had achieved the most secure border in our country's history. Under Biden, it will soon be worse, more dangerous, and more out of control than ever before. He has violated his oath of office to uphold our Constitution and enforce our laws."
Under Biden, a migrant facility in Texas reopened to house unaccompanied minors between the ages of 13 and 17.
"We don't take our advice or counsel from former President Trump on immigration policy, which was not only inhumane but ineffective over the last four years," Psaki said, according to a transcript from the White House.
