Earlier today we told you about White House border czar Roberta Jacobson saying that the Biden administration wants to send $4 million to Central America to help stop the migrant surge that definitely isn’t a “crisis.”
Jacobson also blamed the current surge more on the previous president and less on Joe Biden’s campaign promise to legalize anybody who could make their way into the U.S.:

But it’s “all part of the plan,” not that we’re surprised:
