Psaki: We’re Not Calling The Crisis On The Border A Crisis
Kristen Fisher: You know, I know you have said that you don’t want to label this a crisis. Secretary Mayorkas was in here yesterday saying it’s not a crisis, but now you have ‘Axios’ reporting that the administration needs 20,000 beds to shelter these children based on our own reporting, 97 percent of the beds through the Office of Refugee Resettlement are full or so. I do want to sound like a broken record here but at what point does it become a crisis?”
Psaki: “Well, I would say I don’t think we need to meet your bar of what we need to call it. We had the secretary of Homeland Security yesterday conveying it as a challenge.
