Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said “We can’t have open borders” as she continues to disassociate from her party’s calls for unrestricted immigration and tearing down existing barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The U.S. senator from California, a leading 2020 hopeful for the White House on the Democratic side, has recently been overshadowed by the entry of Senate colleague Bernie Sanders — the progressives’ likely first choice — into the race, and the potential candidacy of Beto O’Rourke the former congressman from Texas who’s been making inroads and positioning himself as the anti-Trump candidate.
This prompted Harris to come out against O’Rourke’s call to tear down the existing 700 miles of fencing on the U.S.-Mexico border during a Wednesday night appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“No, I believe that we need border security,” said Harris, who has opposed President Trump’s immigration policies in the Senate. “But we need smart border security. We can’t have open borders, we need to have border security, all nations do. All nations define their borders, but we should not have a policy and perspective that is grounded in keeping people out for the sake of this nationalistic kind of thing this president is trying to push.”
The rebuke comes after O’Rourke told MSNBC last week that he would “absolutely” tear down the border wall in El Paso, Texas, if he gets the chance.
“Absolutely, I’d take the wall down,” O’Rouke said. “Here’s what we know: After the Secure Fence Act, we have built 600 miles of wall and fencing on a 2,000 mile border. What that has done is not in any demonstrable way made us safer.”
