Jen Psaki hammered Republicans asking Biden to starve children at the border.
Let me give you an idea of the facts about this. There is a Flores settlement that you may or may not be aware of that requires adequate food and elsewhere specifies the age adequacy of the formula for children under the age of one. They are following the law that has been in effect and has been followed, by the way, in the past by every administration since 1997. This has been a law in the United States for a quarter of a century and has been followed. I would also like to note that we think it is morally the right thing to do.
Do you know what the difference is from the last administration? It is law number one, but we believe that children – or children, should I say, are crossing the border with a family member, provided the formula is morally right and we certainly support its implementation.
Republicans have attached themselves to starving children because it plays into both their racism and their feigned border crisis. When Republicans talk about formula and border milk, they really mean that formula milk should be taken out of brown babies and given to white babies.
Democrats should clearly argue that Republicans want to starve children. At the same time that they claim to be “pro-life” when it comes to abortion, Republicans want to starve babies if they don’t get to their choice.
Jen Psaki has provided Democrats with a powerful argument they should use when Republicans start talking about infant formula and the border.
