KJP pouts over federal judge’s immigration ruling: ‘Sabotage, pure and simple’

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, already known for her Orwellian rewrites of history, claimed on Friday that a judge’s decision to block the administration from releasing migrants into the U.S. without a court date is “sabotage.”

“So let me just say on the ruling that you just laid out to me: So, look, the way we see that — it’s sabotage. It’s pure and simple. That’s how that reads to us,” she told a reporter when pressed about the decision during a briefing.


She continued by rejecting the obvious fact that Border Patrol agents were being forced to release the migrants into the United States.

“The claims that CBP is allowing or encouraging mass release of migrants is just categorically false. That is not what’s occurring. That is not what’s happening,” she said in contradiction of the plain-as-day evidence.

“And it is a harmful ruling, and the Department of Justice is going to fight it. That’s what we’re going to see. And we’re going to continue to use every tool that we have to make sure that we are dealing with this issue in a humane and orderly way,” she added.

Jean-Pierre predictably also took a shot at Republicans who, unlike their Democrat peers, have been trying to genuinely resolve the border crisis.

“But look, Republican elected officials continue to play games here. They continue to have political stunts. And they don’t want to solve this problem. They want to use it, again, as a campaign tool for them,” she claimed.

The press secretary’s rewrite of the truth inspired a clap-back from Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin, who was quick to point to his copious treasure trove of evidence as proof that she was lying through her teeth:

Jean-Pierre’s remarks came hours after U.S. District Judge T. Kent Wetherell issued a temporary restraining order against the administration.

“Siding with arguments by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, a federal judge late Thursday issued a temporary restraining order against a new Biden administration policy that would lead to large numbers of migrants being released into the United States,” according to CBS News.

“Moody’s office sought the temporary restraining order Thursday, after filing a lawsuit to challenge the policy Wednesday. The Biden administration issued the policy as a public-health order – known as a Title 42 order – was scheduled to expire at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, leading to a surge of migrants coming into the country.”

In the ruling, Wetherell wrote that the “challenged policy appears to be materially indistinguishable” from an earlier administration policy that he’d already rejected in March (“Parole Plus Alternatives to Detention,” or “Parole+ATD”).

“One of the fundamental flaws with the Parole+ATD policy is that it did not contemplate that the alien would be returned to custody once the purposes of parole had been served, as required by the plain language of (a section of federal law),” his ruling reads.

“The same appears to be true of the challenged (new) policy, which is primarily intended to relieve overcrowding at border patrol facilities by more quickly releasing aliens into the country for further processing when (or if) they report to an ICE facility,” the ruling continues.

“The policy does not contemplate that the alien would be taken into custody at the ICE facility and, as was the case with the Parole+ATD policy, aliens released under the challenged policy would not have an immigration ‘case’ that can ‘continue to be dealt with’ after the purposes of the parole have been served,” the ruling concludes.

In other words, if left unchecked, the Biden administration’s policy would have led to an untold number of migrants being released into American communities — and that, as far as Republicans are concerned, would have been the real sabotage.
