An illegal migrant has schooled Democrat Vice President Kamala Harris on the true situation at the Southern Border by revealing that his group had “no problem” entering the United States “illegally.”
Fox News interviewed a migrant bused from Texas to Kamala Harris’s doorstep in Washington D.C.
The migrant seemed surprised at the suggested the “border is closed,” remarking that “we came illegally, no legal.”
The border is “open,” the migrant confirmed,” not closed.”
Harris recently provoked a backlash after claiming that the border “is secure.”
“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,” the VP said.
“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.”

Fox wasn’t convinced and asked an illegal immigrant about their experience crossing the Southern Border.
“It’s open, not closed,” the migrant said.
“The border is open.
“Everybody (other migrants) believes the border is open.
“It’s open because we enter, we come in, free.
“No problem,” he asserted.
“We came illegally, not legal.”
REPORTER: “Vice President Harris said that the border is closed. Is the border closed?”
ILLEGAL MIGRANT: “The border is open […] Everybody believes that the border is open. It’s open because we enter. We come in—free—no problem […] We came illegally.”

Biden’s spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre had this exchange today with a reporter:
JEAN-PIERRE: “And again, the facts are more individuals encountered at the border will be removed or expelled this year than in any previous year. But that’s the —“
REPORTER: “Is the border secure, Karine?”
JEAN-PIERRE: “— work that we have been doing.”
REPORTER: “Is the border secure?”
JEAN-PIERRE: “I’m just going to refer back to the Vice President. We agree with her. She is saying that there’s a lot of work to do, right? She also said that in that very statement. We agree that the border is secure but there is still more work to be done.”
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) also blasted Harris’s claims as “wrong.”
“It’s wrong,” Manchin said.
“She’s dead wrong on that 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.
“Amnesty people were shouting the word ‘Amnesty.’
“That piece of legislation would’ve corrected everything we have going wrong.
“But for anybody – the vice president, president, anybody – to say our borders are secured?
“That is not accurate,” he said.
“I’ve been there. It’s wrong.”
