Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia blasted Vice President Kamala Harris for her recent statements about the border.
Manchin said that Harris is “dead wrong” in her insistence that the border is secure.
Manchin also stated that “we need the wall and a lot more, technology, more agents.”
Manchin continued, adding that the 2013 immigration bill “would have corrected everything we have going wrong.”
Host Bret Baier, host of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” said, “Vice President Harris said this weekend the southern border is ‘secure.'”
Manchin responded, “It’s wrong. She’s dead wrong on that,”
Manchin continued, “And I have said this, if we don’t secure — I voted every time for the wall. But we need the wall and a lot more, technology, more agents.”
“The 2013 immigration bill was still the best piece of legislation I think that we’ve ever had before us. We couldn’t get it passed through the Republican House at that time because of some politics involved there and…people were shouting the word ‘amnesty,'” Manchin added.
“That piece of legislation would have corrected everything we have going wrong,” Manchin said. “But for anybody, the Vice President, the President, anybody to say that our borders are secure, that is not accurate. I’ve been there. It’s wrong.”
