DICKEY COUNTY, N.D. — Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in an interview Thursday lashed President Trump on border security, charging that the administration has failed to produce an adequate blueprint for halting illegal crossings from Mexico.
The Democrat, fighting an uphill re-election battle in this pro-Trump Republican bastion, chided the president on his signature issue, saying she has yet to see a cogent plan for fixing interior enforcement or building a wall along the southern border that will work. Heitkamp reserved some of that fire for fellow Democrats, pointedly disagreeing with liberals who dismiss concerns about illegal immigration and want Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, abolished.
The article goes on to state the following:
“I do not believe our Southwest border’s secure. So I don’t share the view, when people say: ‘Well, we don’t need to do anything, the border’s secure.’ The border’s not secure. But we need to be smart about how we do border security,” Heitkamp told the Washington Examiner. “We’re waiting for a southern border strategy.”
“What I will say on abolishing ICE: I just find that — I’m a former attorney general. I will admit a bias for law enforcement,” the senator added. “To criticize anyone in law enforcement for doing what they’re doing — doing their job as they’ve been told to do their job? That just doesn’t sit will with me.”
Heitkamp, saying she opposes Democratic plans for nationalizing healthcare and creating a government-run single-payer system, is running on preserving Obamacare, with an emphasis on the law’s pre-existing conditions guarantee.

.@DavidMDrucker has been doing great work in red state Senate battlegrounds, getting interesting stuff out of challengers & incumbents alike. Here Heidi Heitkamp takes a new tack—trying to outflank not only her party, but Trump himself on border security. https://t.co/NN8Ha157Ja
