Jean-Pierre told the hosts of "The View" the numbers of people fleeing from countries like Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela to enter America has recently spiked saying, "We have seen 121% increase since last year.

"This is why the stunt that Republican governors are doing is so shameful."
Jean-Pierre suggested that the move was "so inhumane" because the Trump administration caused the problems in the first place.
"It is so inhumane because while we’re trying to fix a problem that was decimated, an immigration system that was decimated by the last administration, they’re not coming up with solutions," Jean-Pierre claimed.
"They’re using children, they’re using women and families as a political stunt, as a political ploy because they don’t want solutions at all."
