White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday gave an update on reports that two of the four Americans kidnapped in Mexico are dead while the other two remain living, calling attacks on Americans "unacceptable."
White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre was blasted on Tuesday for downplaying chaos at the Mexican border, even as the nation reels from four Americans being kidnapped in Mexico.
As four Americans crossed from Brownsville, Texas, into the Mexican city of Matamoros, Tamaulipas, on Friday, their vehicle began receiving gunfire. Video from the incident showed who are presumed to be Mexican drug cartel members loading the victims into a vehicle, with two of them already appearing to have been dead or injured at the time as the attackers dragged their bodies. They were not thought to have been targets, but instead were initially caught between rival gangs’ crossfire. The White House has since referred to this crime as "unacceptable."
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy addressed the spokeswoman at Tuesday’s press briefing and asked, "So cartels kill Americans on this side of the border with drugs, and now they're killing Americans on the other side of the border with guns. Why is President Biden so comfortable with cartels operating so close to the U.S.?"
Jean-Pierre responded by claiming that fentanyl is currently at "historic lows-historic levels" under Biden’s presidency.
