Vice President Kamala Harris defended the Biden administration’s handling of the southern border, telling George Stephanopoulos it is impossible to “flip a switch” and fix the situation.
“It’s not going to be overnight. We can’t just flip a switch and make it better. The reality is that we inherited a system, an immigration system that was deeply broken,” Harris said while appearing on “Good Morning America” on Thursday. “It’s requiring us to actually put it back together in terms of creating a fair process that is effective and efficient.”
Immigration officials encountered over 1.7 million migrants at the southern border in the fiscal year 2021 when Border Patrol agents made a record number of arrests. A number of migrants who spoke to the Daily Caller in October thanked President Joe Biden for his immigration policies.
