Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris has tried to pass the buck by blaming President Donald Trump for the crisis at the U.S. Southern Border.
During an appearance on Meet the Press, Harris also told a disbelieving Chuck Todd the border is secure.
“Final topic here,” Todd said to Harris.
“We’re here in Texas, I want to ask you about the border.
“Would you call the border secure?”
“I think that there is no question that we have to do what the president and I asked Congress to do,” Harris said.
“The first request we made, pass a bill to create a pathway to citizenship.
“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.”
Todd wasn’t buying it and said:
“We’re gonna have 2 million people cross this border for the first time ever.
“You’re confident this border is secure?”
Harris then offered up a nonsensical word salad first before trying to double-down on the Trump blame game:
“We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration.
“But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix,” she claimed.
“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.
“We don’t have that in place because people are playing politics in a state like this 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.”
