White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre rejected criticism from Republicans that the Biden administration is to blame for the human smuggling attempt that ended in tragedy Monday in Texas, saying that the border is “closed.”

At least 46 people are dead after an 18-wheeler smuggling migrants was found in San Antonio, Texas, on Monday night. It’s one of the deadliest smuggling incidents from the U.S.-Mexico border in recent decades, according to the Associated Press.

“The fact of the matter is, the border is closed, which is in part why you see people trying to make this dangerous journey using smuggling networks. Forty-six people died in the state of Texas…. Their families are still learning they lost loves ones… We’re focused on them, on the facts and on holding the human smugglers who endangered vulnerable individuals for profit accountable,” Jean-Pierre told reporters on Air Force One Tuesday, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted Monday that “[t]hese deaths are on Biden,” but Jean-Pierre dismissed blame for the “absolutely horrific and heartbreaking” event.
