Fox News’ Peter Doocy Presses Psaki on Video of Children ‘Being Thrown Over’ the Border Wall

Fox News’s Peter Doocy and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki battled over a video that surfaced showing children “being thrown over” a border wall in New Mexico.

Doocy asked Psaki, “On immigration, has the White House considered beefing up border security now that there is video of a three-year-old and a five-year-old being thrown over the wall in New Mexico?”

Psaki confirmed she did see the video and pointed to a statement made by Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas who said “the inhumane way smugglers abuse children” is “criminal and morally reprehensible.”

She claimed the children were rescued by workers at the border.

The reporter pushed back against her claim, “They still got close enough, as you guys are talking about, addressing root causes in the region, for a smuggler to throw them over a wall into the desert and I’m just curious what the White House is doing to stop that from happening.”

Watch the exchange below:

The press secretary turned the question on Doocy, “Are you concerned about the kids’ safety? Or are you concerned about kids getting in?”

Doocy argued he is concerned about the safety of the children.

“Well, of course, it is, which is why I’m often surprised by some of the lines of questioning here, but, I will say that our concern and our focus is on sending a clear message to the region that this is not the time to come,” Psaki responded.

She continued, “You should not send your kids on this treacherous journey. That these smugglers are praying on vulnerabilities in these communities.”

A top border official predicted more than a million migrants will arrive at the border this year alone.

  1. ‘We just want a better life’ cuts no ice with me. No sh*t, Sherlock. We ALL want a better life-like not being taxed into poverty to provide lifetime welfare for illegal aliens. Just as a recap, a family of 4 with one child under 18 is eligible for the following for 4 years (per family per year)
    $26,000 for HUD housing (60% of all HUD housing is occupied by illegal aliens)
    $12,000 food stamps
    $12,000 cash assistance
    $44,000 ‘all free’ Medicaid
    $12,000-$22,000 per child for public school education
    Free/reduced utilities
    Free child care, ESL, legal services.
    There’s more, but add this up: $110,000 per year. How many people do you know who get $110,000 tax free for NOT WORKING (other than teachers)?
    We have 65 million seniors/disabled making $17,000 a year and paying $1500 for Medicare which only pays 80%.
    We have 550,000 street people including veterans. We have 14 million hungry and 2.5 million homeless American CHILDREN.
    Where’s all the public assistance for them? Oh, right-being given to illegal aliens.
    Biden should be charged with treason for not defending our sovereign nation’s borders and allowing this onslaught.
    BTW, AOC, Hispanic and Latino people are racially classified as Caucasoid, just like ‘white’ people. Oops, shoots your ‘racist’ claim down.

  2. What a b×tch. ‘concerned about the kid’s safety or the kids getting in?’ Yeah, Raggetty Jenny, we’re panicked about 2 toddlers.
    What a supercilious azz.

  3. But… this can’t possibly be true. Fake news by the left media. The Trump wall is impenetrable by human trafficers, drug smugglers, and satan even himself.

    1. You can’t be that stupid. No one, not even Trump said the wall would stop everyone. What happened is, in addition to the wall, we had policies in place to discourage immigration, and because of that our border patrol could stop these attempts. The wall was never meant to be a stand alone barrier, but coupled with policy and border patrol it WAS demonstrably effective.

      Biden dismantling Trump’s policy has caused a surge on the border that has overwhelmed our men and women at the border. Once again, no one thought that the wall would stop all crossing, only help bring them down to a manageable level, which it did.

      1. Biden didn’t smash the wall down. I wouldn’t disagree Trump policies stopped influx, but i would definitely argue the wall had anything to do with keeping things at a manageable level.

    2. Penis – Mad King Biden the Usurper and Divider stopped completion of the wall President Trump was having built. You don’t know this. Actually, the wall in question is in Southern New Mexico, part of the old wall. You want to stop the building of the wall, then complain the wall isn’t keeping illegals out?

  4. if the biden boys really gave a shit they would look at the two kids and there on the kids is a phone number to call and whom ever is on the answering side of the phone arrest them and find out who tossed the wipper snappers over the wall… then have the Mexican police arrest them in Mexico… bring them to the US and throw all of them in jail and throw away the keys… the kids will grow up soon and one of them can mow yards and the other one clean motel 6 rooms …. they have a great outlook going forward with parents like they have now…

      1. many places in Mexico are much better than here in the states… go to cabo sometime and compare it to where you live now… do you see starving kids.. do you see black kids hijacking cars, do you see drive by shootings like in chicago… many places are much better than some of the corrupt cities of the USA… those two kids would be better off if they had good parents and stayed in Mexico…

    1. No they the shoot the guy before he climbs the wall to drop them. Notify the pinned name to come pick them up. America has lost around 2+ million folks to death. Let them in. They are hard workers and much better people than the thugs we got running the streets.
