President Joe Biden said he will commit to being transparent about the conditions inside migrant facilities at the border, but not before his administration is able to implement their plans for how to handle people seeking asylum in the U.S. Biden said he did not know how soon that would be. NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker pointed out that the media has not had access to information about the conditions inside most migrant facilities at the border since Biden took office, particularly those that are reportedly overcrowded.
“This is being set up and you’ll have full access to everything once we get this thing moving,” Biden said of his plans to address border facilities. He also said he made no apologies for ending Trump-era immigration policies such as “Remain in Mexico,” which required migrants to await their asylum cases outside of the U.S. Biden’s responses came during his first Q&A with reporters as president on March 25 at the White House.
