White House spokesman Adm. John Kirby sparred with a reporter at a Tuesday press conference about who is to blame for the immigration crime crisis. Mr. Kirby laid the blame squarely on House speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) for not passing a controversial border and spending bill, while Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about alternative solutions, saying “the bill is dead.”

The exchange came on the day former President Donald Trump campaigned in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and pinned the blame for the border crisis on President Joe Biden, bringing up the March murder of 25-year-old Ruby Garcia, which allegedly occurred at the hands of an illegal immigrant—an example the reporter raised to Mr. Kirby.
