(PatrioticPost.com)- When asked whether President Joe Biden wanted “more migrants to come to Delaware,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre ignored Daily Caller White House Correspondent Diana Glebova.
Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, has said repeatedly that he would take his immigrant-bait scheme to Delaware.
When Glebova brought up the issue of governors like DeSantis and Greg Abbott sending immigrants to places they believe to be politically significant during Wednesday’s press briefing, Jean-Pierre seemed to lose patience with the reporter for the right-wing publication when her follow-up inquiry related to Biden’s home state:
DIANA GLEBOVA- I appreciate you, Karine. You have criticized governors who move migrants via different cities all around the nation. But where should authorities overburdened by the volume of refugees pouring into their towns and shelters put the migrants?
- JEAN-PIERRE- Well, we have already said that there is a procedure — a legal process — and that we are happy to cooperate with communities that are addressing this problem.
We have seen from governors that they are utilizing immigrants as a political instrument. And that’s not the right way to go about it. And they’re sending migrants without telling municipal — local authorities or the federal government, as we’ve seen over the last few months — the last few weeks.
And what they do is invite TV news crews to go to record this moment and utilize it as a political gimmick. We are doing so and will keep doing so. But as we have done with New York City, Washington, D.C., and other places as well — we are willing — we are eager and open to working with communities that are dealing with this problem.
DIANA GLEBOVA: President Biden wants more immigrants to come to Delaware?
- JEAN-PIERRE- I don’t even know what that query is about. But I’ll move on.
On Twitter, Ms. Glebova and The Daily Caller expressed their displeasure with the interaction and linked Glebova’s immigration status to Jean-Pierre’s dismissiveness with the question.
