White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the Biden administration is giving free smartphones to illegal immigrants.

The purpose of the initiative, according to Psaki, is to help the government better “track” and “check-in” with them as they await immigration court proceedings.

Asked by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy about the initiative, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the following:

By that logic why don’t we just give them each their own free house? That way we have an address and know where they live?

Hmm… I wonder which phone company got that Federal contract? They probably gave the administration a great deal – like three times the retail price per phone.

Doocy later asked Psaki whether there was concern by anyone in the administration that some migrants may decide to take the phones and “toss them.”

“Do you have a record people throwing phones away,” Psaki replied with her trademark snark.
