During Tuesday’s White House press briefing, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded to Senator Ted Cruz’s suggestion that she visit the border to see the chaos firsthand; KJP says she doesn’t need lectures.

REPORTER: “Senator @tedcruz has…suggested that you come down and see for yourself whether migrants are actually crossing the border by foot.”

KJP: “I’ve been to the border…I certainly don’t need lectures or invitations from Republicans about the border or border policy.”

Watch the interaction below:

Cruz stopped by Hannity Tuesday night to reply to KJP’s comments —and issued a challenge to the press secretary: “spend an hour at the border with me and the border patrol.”

Watch the clip above. Cruz’s Tweet below.

“My challenge to Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: Spend an hour at the border with me. When we encounter dozens, if not hundreds of illegal aliens walking across the border, will she have the courage to tell the White House press corps, “I lied to you”?

According to The Wall Street Journal, Border Patrol agents have made about 1.82 million arrests at the southern border in the government’s fiscal year so far, which ends Sept. 30. In addition, record-breaking amounts of deadly fentanyl are pouring across the border.
