The White House is still blaming the state of Texas for the drowning of three migrants last week even though a filing from the Department of Justice made it clear that the allegations are not true and the state did not actually prevent a rescue.

During a press briefing on Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre doubled down on the claims that Texas officials caused the deaths of the migrants by not allowing federal border patrol agents in to help.

Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich challenged her on the claims, pointing out, “Will the administration then amend its separate statement that implied that Texas officials were responsible for the deaths of those three migrants when, in fact, they had nothing to do with it, they had already been dead for an hour by the time Mexico told anyone in the U.S. about it, and the administration admitted as much in their court filing.”

They acknowledged that, in their court filing, that the statement from the White House implies that Texas was responsible. And a number of outlets were forced to issue corrections and editors’ notes because of that White House statement. Will the White House amend that statement?” Heinirich added.

Having been confronted with her misrepresentation of facts, Jean-Pierre ignored the question and resorted to scolding the reporter instead and accusing her of being rude and insensitive with her question.

In her words, “So let’s be sensitive here: three people died, three migrants died. Two children, and a woman. That was devastating. Devastating situation, heartbreaking situation, so let’s be really mindful of what we’re talking about here.”

Jean-Pierre went on to criticize Texas for its efforts to secure the border, defending the White House statement as correct.

“I want to take a step back and as you’re talking about our statement — look, as I mentioned, a woman and two children died, they drowned near Eagle Pass, which is, as I said, devastating. And the Texas officials blocked Border Patrol from accessing the area. That’s what was happening at that time,” she said.

She then added that the White House’s initial statement “is consistent with DOJ’s filing,” claiming that when federal agents were blocked from accessing the area, there was an “ongoing emergency situation,” as other migrants were still in the water.

Heinrich weighed in to point out that the White House’s statement did not mention any ongoing emergency situation in which other migrants were still in the water. All Jean-Pierre could say in response was that the White House’s statement was, “Our statement is very much consistent with the DOJ filing. Anything else in specific you wanna know about that, I would just certainly refer you to the DOJ.”

A spokesperson for Biden’s Department of Homeland Security told CNN on Saturday after the incident that federal agents were stopped from assisting the drowning migrants, a woman and two children.

“In responding to a distress call from the Mexican government, Border Patrol agents were physically barred by Texas officials from entering the area. The Texas governor’s policies are cruel, dangerous, and inhumane, and Texas’s blatant disregard for federal authority over immigration poses grave risks,” the spokesperson said.

However, the DOJ, in its own accounting of the incident, said that the Mexican government informed Border Patrol at 9 p.m. that Saturday that the migrants had drowned at 8 p.m. The Texas Military Department had reportedly been informed of the drowning over an hour after it happened.
