Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is challenging Republicans to come to the table on comprehensive immigration reform. During a Capitol briefing, Schumer said bold change is needed. Republicans say the current situation at the southern border is President Biden’s crisis.
The White House has avoided using the word crisis to describe the ongoing wave of illegal immigrants, including unaccompanied children. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki argues time is needed to reverse the immigration policies from the Trump administration. She has called those policies ineffective, inhumane and unworkable.
