Nice try, Kamala.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet The Press, Vice President Kamala Harris doubled down on the administration’s talking point that the border is “secure.” Todd pushed the Veep, reminding her that we’re going to have 2 million border crossings this year for the firs time ever.
“Final topic here. We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border. Would you call the border secure?” Todd asked Vice President 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 challenged.
“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration,” Harris continued, pivoting then to attempt to blame the present situation 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.”
