White House Refuses to Answer If the Border Is Secure

Wednesday at the White House daily press briefing, Fox News chief White House correspondent Ed Henry pressed press secretary Josh Earnest on whether he agrees with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who declared “the border is secure” yesterday.

Earnest refused to give Henry a straight answer, opting instead to attack Republicans for “playing politics with a very serious situation” by “saying it’s not secure and blocking a piece of legislation,” referring to the current U.S. Senate immigration reform package stalled at the GOP-controlled House of Representatives. 

Earnest insisted “under the president’s leadership there has been “significant resources” dedicated to securing the border and added, “The president is certainly supportive additional security being added to the border.”
