Biden WH Can’t Say How It Is Refuting Perception That The US Border Is Open; As Biden Declares National Emergency at Border Is Over, Ends Funding of Wall, and Migrant Arrivals at Border Hit Crisis Levels, and related stories

Biden WH can’t say how it is refuting perception that the US border is open:
The White House struggled to answer on Thursday how it was working to dispel the belief among migrants that the US border is open, instead shifting focus to the administration’s “moral and humane” immigration policy, amid a nearly 100 percent surge of illegal crossings.
Speaking to reporters at a briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki engaged in a back-and-forth with two reporters about her claim earlier this week that the US is turning away the “vast majority” of migrants at the southern border.
After being pressed on Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador saying this week that migrants believed the borders were open under President Biden, Psaki admitted that what she was saying “is not, I guess, what you’re perhaps seeing if you’re looking at a portion of the border, but what they are tracking in terms of numbers and data.”
Psaki went on to reiterate that the Biden administration is sending the message that it is “not the time to come,” but eventually, migrants will be processed in a “moral and a humane” way. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden Declares National Emergency at Border Is Over, Ends Funding of Wall:
President Joe Biden on Wednesday reported the issuance of his proclamation to terminate the national emergency at the Southern border.
Biden informed Congress in a letter on Wednesday of his January decision to terminate Proclamation 9844, in which former President Donald Trump declared the national emergency at the Southern border in February of 2019.
“Consistent with section 202(a) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1622, I hereby report that I have issued a proclamation that terminates the national emergency first declared in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States),” he wrote in his letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and president of the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris.
“I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border was unwarranted. I have also announced that it shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall, and that I am directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to that end.” --->READ MORE HERE
