White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki spectacularly avoided reporters' questions about human traffickers dropping small children over a 14-foot border wall.

Instead of answering the question, Psaki deflected the question back onto the reporter, asking about the motivation behind asking about it.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki:

“And then, on immigration, has the White House considered beefing up border security now that there is video of a three-year-old and a five-year-old being thrown over the wall in New Mexico?”

Psaki replied the administration has “spoken out about our concerns” regarding human smugglers.

“Yes, but they still got close enough — as you guys are talking about addressing root causes in the region — for a smuggler to throw them over a wall into the desert,” Doocy said.

“And I’m just curious what the White House is doing to stop that from happening?" he asked.

Psaki responded with a question:

“And are you concerned more about the kids’ safety, or are you concerned about kids getting in?”

“Or tell me more about your concern here.”

Doocy responded:

"Kids’ safety is, as you just mentioned, the main concern."

“Well, of course, it is, which is why I’m often surprised by some of the line of questioning here,” Psaki responded.

“But I will say that our concern and our focus is on sending a clear message to smuggler — to the region that this is not the time to come. You should not send your kids on this treacherous journey."

"That these smugglers are preying on vulnerabilities in these communities, there’s a lot of issues and steps we need to take to address root causes."

"So, of course, our concern is for the safety of these kids. These Border Patrol agents who save these kids deserve our thanks and our gratitude for ensuring their safety.”

On Thursday, Neon Nettle reported the shocking video released by U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) showing human traffickers dropping young children over a 14-foot barrier.

The unnerving footage shows smugglers dropping a 3-year-old toddler and her 5-year-old sister from the top of the border wall.

They left the little girls exposed in the desert as they fled back into Mexico.

El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria Chavez published the clip on Twitter.
