Under the Flores Settlement Agreement, the Biden Administration is providing migrant infants at the border with baby formula amid the nationwide shortage.
The Biden Administration is standing by its decision to support migrant families at the border amid the nationwide baby formula shortage.
On Friday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed recent criticism from Rep. Kat Cammack, Florida Republican lawmaker, and other republicans who have publicly criticized President Joe Biden for providing baby formula to immigrant children.
Psaki pointed out that the actions are in line with the law, citing the Flores Settlement Agreement, which has been followed by every administration.
The law stems from a class action lawsuit settled by the U.S. Justice Department under the Bill Clinton administration, in 1997.
But we believe that when children and babies, or babies I should say, are crossing the border with a family member, that providing them formula is morally right. »
