White House press secretary Jen Psaki: unaccompanied children been seen traveling across the U.S. to be unified with their parents or vetted sponsor

The practice has been ongoing, with destinations not limited to New York, prompting Fox News reporter Peter Doocy to confront Psaki on it.

“Why is the administration flying thousands of migrants from the border to Florida and New York in the middle of the night?” Doocy asked.

“Well, I’m not sure that’s in the middle of the night. But let me tell you what’s happening here,” replied Psaki, prompting Doocy to point out that 2am is the middle of the night.

Psaki continued, “It is our legal responsibility to safely care for unaccompanied children until they can be swiftly unified with a parent or a vetted sponsor. And that’s something we take seriously.”

“As a part of the unification process, our Office of Refugee Resettlement facilitates travel for children in its custody to their families or sponsors across the country,” she added.

Psaki then admitted that “in recent weeks, unaccompanied children pass through the Westchester airport, which I think is what you’re referring to, in route to their final destination to be unified with their parents or vetted sponsor.”

“It’s no surprise that kids can be seen traveling through states, not just New York. It’s something that we’re also working to unite children with their family members or vetted sponsors in other parts of the country as well,” Psaki further admitted.
