White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Friday that a Florida judge’s decision halting an emergency mass parole program at the U.S. southern border was “sabotage.”
Judge Thomas Wetherell of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida ruled on Thursday that the U.S. Border Patrol does not have the authority to release illegal immigrants from custody without giving them a date with an immigration court and setting up a means of tracking them.
“Look, the way we see that, it’s sabotage, pure and simple. That’s how that reads to us. The claims that CBP is allowing or encouraging mass release of migrants is just categorically false,” Jean-Pierre said during a press conference.
