Border Crisis

QUICK, BLAME TRUMP! Kamala Says the Border is Secure, But Blames Trump for 'Deterioration'

The broken border is Donald Trump’s fault, according to Vice President Kamala Harris.

During an appearance on Meet the Press over the weekend, host Chuck Todd pushed the Veep on her claim that the border is secure, despite two million border crossings estimated by the end of the year.

“Final topic here. We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?” Todd asked Harris.

“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do. The first request we made, pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship,” Harris began before answering the question directly. “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system, in particular over the last four years before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”

“We’re gonna have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever. You’re confident this border is secure?” Todd said, pushing the issue.

“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris said, attempting to blame the border crisis on former President Donald Trump. “But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix. Given the deterioration that happened over the last four years.”

“We also have to put in place a law and a plan for a pathway for citizenship for the millions of people who are here and are prepared to do what is legally required to gain citizenship,” Harris added. “We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this [Texas] and in Congress — by the way, you want to talk about bipartisanship, on an issue that at one time was a bipartisan issue. Both in terms of Republican senators and even presidents.”
