It’s the Obama phone all over again!
Just so we’re all getting this straight:
Instead of simply enforcing immigration laws currently on the books, the Biden administration is handing out smartphones to illegal immigrants paid for by the American taxpayer as a method to “track” their whereabouts as they roam around the country unscathed.
Instead of maintaining law and order which resulted from Trump’s border policies, the Biden administration would rather give illegal aliens expensive consumer electronics which they can use to perpetuate their criminal activity.
What’s better yet is the White House defending the practice of handing over smartphones to illegal immigrants!
Press Secretary Jen Psaki mixed it up with Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy after a question was raised about the smartphone program.
Psaki said the phones provided to illegal migrants and border crossers were part of the administration’s “alternative to detention” program at the border.
Since when are criminals given gifts?
“I think you, of all people, since you’ve asked me a range of questions on this topic over time, would recognize that we need to take steps to ensure that we know where individuals are and we can track, and we can check in with then,” she replied.

What’s funny about Psaki’s response is the subtle way she tried to correct herself from saying the administration “tracks” illegals using these smartphones.
Tracking, of course, has a purely negative connotation that may not go over well with the far-left.
According to reports, over 180,000 illegal immigrants have been given smartphones and are currently being tracked throughout the United States.
Psaki claimed the smartphones also help identify illegals using voiceprints and “telephonic” technology. Every week, undocumented migrants are required to call in with the Bidenphone while ICE agents match their voiceprints for identification.
What could go wrong!
She also claimed that cameras in smartphones and tablets can be used for “facial recognition” purposes to better identify the migrants.
Wow, how could that technology EVER be used on American citizens?!
Psaki explained the program was “all part” of the Biden administration’s effort to track migrants coming into the country without having to detain them.
“Our concern is ensuring individuals who irregularly migrate to the United States proceed through our process of being monitored,” she continued.
“Irregularly migrate”?! It’s called breaking the law, sweety.
Is this woman crazy?
