After White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre commented on the situation at the border, Texas Senator Ted Cruz invited her to come check out the situation for herself.
My challenge to Biden Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: Spend an hour at the border with me.
When we encounter dozens, if not hundreds of illegal aliens walking across the border, will she have the courage to tell the White House press corps, “I lied to you”? pic.twitter.com/cF5M9fIk4J

On Tuesday, Jean-Pierre responded to the invitation.
"Sen. Ted Cruz, he's suggested that you come down to see for yourself whether migrants are actually crossing the border by foot," a reporter said to Jean-Pierre.
“One thing I — I will say is I certainly don’t need lectures, or invitations from Republicans about the border or border policies,” Jean-Pierre continued. “And, you know — and I certainly won’t take advice on border from — from anyone who voted against securing record level of funding for the Department of Homeland Security.”

This exchange was sparked by an exchange between Jean-Pierre and Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy. Jean-Pierre claimed migrants aren't walking across the border despite video evidence contradicting her claims.
“It’s not like somebody walks over,” Jean-Pierre claimed then.
