Karine Jean-Pierre explodes at Peter Doocy for asking border question

 September 22, 2023

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre sharply responded to Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy's immigration query on Thursday afternoon, ultimately choosing not to provide an answer.

Doocy pressed Jean-Pierre about a recent incident where a staggering 10,000 individuals illegally crossed the U.S.--Mexico border in a single day, as Fox News reported.

"So, what do you call it here at the White House when 10,000 people illegally cross the border in a single day?" inquired Doocy.

Jean-Pierre's Interruption and Response

Jean-Pierre retorted, "So, what do you call it, Peter, when [the] GOP put forth a — wait, no, no, no, no, no, you can't," cutting him off mid-sentence.

Doocy pointed out that Jean-Pierre was countering his question with another question.

Jean-Pierre then indicated they should proceed to the next topic, even as both of them began speaking simultaneously.

"Karine, please," Doocy said.

She stated, "No, no, no, we're moving on," and then motioned towards another journalist, indicating, "In the back."

Doocy, persistent in his endeavor, continued, "You said you were stopping the flow at the border. Ten thousand migrants—" only to be interrupted once more.

Jean-Pierre expressed that she had attempted to address the question but felt interrupted by Doocy and then turned her attention back to the other journalist.

After this exchange, Doocy wasn't given further opportunities to pose questions during the briefing.

Skyrocketing Illegal Crossings

The U.S.--Mexico border has experienced a sharp rise in illegal crossings this month.

Drone footage secured by Fox News depicted a colossal group of over 2,000 migrants making their way near Eagle Pass, Texas -- one of the most substantial groupings on record.

Data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), on which NBC News reported, underscored the severity of the situation, with border agents encountering over 7,500 migrants on a single Sunday.

This tally included encounters in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas (1,800); Del Rio, Texas (1,600); Tucson, Arizona (1,500); and El Paso, Texas (over 1,000). According to CBP officials, the total number exceeded 10,000 later that same week.

Migrant Detention and Release

Reports have also indicated that nearly 20,000 migrants were under federal detention just last month.

After crossings occur, CBP has been discharging between 100 and 200 migrants daily onto America's streets, as NBC News further noted.
