Presidential candidate and United States Representative Tulsi Gabbard recently announced that she does not support open borders while speaking on the importance of borders.
According to The Daily Caller:
Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard pushed back on the open borders position of some of her Democratic colleagues Thursday, saying that borders are important for the sovereignty of a country.
The long-shot 2020 presidential candidate told Breitbart News editor and chief Alex Marlow that she believes voters are being given a “false choice” on the issue of immigration less than a year out from the presidential election.
“I think that we can and we must have a secure border policy that’s actually effective and works and also reform our immigration system so that it works for our country can be a safe secure border along with the humane immigration policy and achieve both objectives,” Gabbard said.
Several 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have proposed unprecedented immigration policies, including decriminalizing border crossings and tearing down existing border fencing, among others.
Gabbard has been outspoken against many of the Democrat's progressive policies including open borders.
