White House Doubles Down On Statement Blaming Texas For Drowned Migrants | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The White House doubled down Wednesday on a statement blaming Texas for the drowning deaths of three migrants - one woman and two children - despite a DOJ filing that undermined the claim.

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre balked at the questions from Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich, pivoting when presented with the DOJ's versions of events to suggest that it was rude to ask questions when three people were dead.

    WATCH:


    "Will the administration then amend its separate statement that implied that Texas officials were responsible for the deaths of those three migrants when, in fact, they had nothing to do with it, they had already been dead for an hour by the time Mexico told anyone in the U.S. about it, and the administration admitted as much in their court filing," Heinrich began.

    "They acknowledged that, in their court filing, that the statement from the White House implies that Texas was responsible," Heinrich continued, adding, "And a number of outlets were forced to issue corrections and editors' notes because of that White House statement. Will the White House amend that statement?"

    Jean-Pierre made no attempt to answer the direct question, instead appearing to scold Heinrich for asking the question. "So let's be sensitive here: three people died, three migrants died. Two children, and a woman. That was devastating. Devastating situation, heartbreaking situation, so let's be really mindful of what we're talking about here."

    She went on to talk about the overall situation, continuing to imply that Texas was in the wrong for making attempts to secure the border where the federal government had refused to do so, and claiming that there was nothing wrong with the statement.

    "I want to take a step back and as you're talking about our statement - look, as I mentioned, a woman and two children died, they drowned near Eagle Pass, which is, as I said, devastating," Jean-Pierre continued. "And the Texas officials blocked Border Patrol from accessing the area. That's what was happening at that time."

    "Our statement is consistent with DOJ's filing," she insisted, saying that at the time, there had been an "ongoing emergency situation" in which migrants were still in the water.

    Heinrich pushed back, saying that the White House's statement directly addressed the three migrants who had been dead for some time prior to Mexico even informing U.S. officials they had drowned - and made no mention of any ongoing situation in which migrants remained in the water while Texas officials blocked Border Patrol from accessing the area.

    Jean-Pierre responded by once again insisting that the White House's statement was "consistent" with the DOJ filing.

Understanding that there are two firm positions concerning the Open Border Crises, but many realties regarding its current, and, or projected real impacts to the functioning, sustainability of this Constitutional Republic: What position below best represents what you know to be true regarding this impactful policy?
  The United States' must continue the Executive initiative of Open Borders until a Democratic Congress can codify full Demographic Inclusion by keeping the Biden /Harris Open Borders policy in place.
  Our United States' borders are sovereign just as are our self-governed citizens, where borders must be maintained, monitored and defended, which is the position of core Republicans.
  I am in favor of Open Borders to make my America more of a global community; however, the federal government must now fix problems that "Red State" governors have caused in our cities.
  I do NOT favor the Democratic Socialists' disruption of the cultural fabric of my Representative Republic, and there will be Treasonous Hell to Pay when the certain calamity begins in earnest.

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?
  Yes
  No
  Not sure

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.
