In a desperate attempt to avoid questioning about the worsening humanitarian crisis at the Southern border, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that it is President Trump’s fault that thousands of children are sleeping on concrete floored cages without seeing the Sun for days.
As previously reported by CBS News, just under one month ago there were only NINE children being held in Border Patrol facilities, yet now there are over 4000.
JUST IN: U.S. Border Patrol are currently holding more than 4,200 unaccompanied migrant children in cages, which CBS News describe as “jail-like stations unfit to house minors”

Even journalists for far left outlets are appalled by what is unfolding.
PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked Psaki to explain what on earth is going on.
“There were lawyers who interviewed some children that were in facilities,” Alcindor said, adding “The children described sleeping on the floor, being hungry, not seeing the sun for days.”
She continued “How is that acceptable for the Biden administration to keep children in those sorts of conditions, given the fact that you said you were an administration that was going to be more humane than the previous one?”
Psaki immediately blamed President Trump, stating “We are trying to work through what was a dismantled and unprepared system because of the role of the last administration.”
Even Yamiche Alcindor is calling out the Biden White House for inhumane conditions forced upon children at the border (hungry, sleeping on floor, can't go outside). Jenn Psaki spins as best as she can and tries to blame President Trump. This is despicable spin and transparent. pic.twitter.com/3qesGhhPFn

Alcindor continued to ask for an explanation, stating “children being hungry, sleeping on the floor, not being allowed outside for days at a time, why is that acceptable to go on, even for one more day? Why is that something that’s not being outlawed right now? How is the administration not stopping that today?”
Again avoiding the question, Psaki responded “Well, Yamiche, it’s not acceptable. But I think the challenge here is that there are not that many options.”
How about the option not to completely reverse Trump’s policies which your own people admit were preventing this kind of hell from unfolding?
That was an option.
