Brandon Gillespie, Fox News, May 2, 2023

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre became visibly agitated Tuesday when pressed on her claim from a day earlier that illegal immigration had come down 90% under the Biden administration.

During the daily press briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre where she got the 90% number, and attempted to cite U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) numbers showing there were 136,000 more encounters this fiscal year than the previous.

However, Jean-Pierre, appearing visibly annoyed, interrupted Doocy and seemingly tried to stop him from asking his full question {snip}


Jean-Pierre went on to say that she was speaking about the “parolee program” President Biden put in place to “deal with certain countries on ways that we can limit illegal migration.”


“And we have seen — The data has shown us that it has gone down by more than 90%. That was what I was speaking to,” Jean-Pierre said.
