Tulsi Gabbard: I Think It’s Fair to Say Democratic Presidential Candidates Are Pushing for Open Borders
GABBARD: "I think it’s fair. I don't — I don't support open borders. Without secure borders, we don't really have a country. And while some of the other Democratic candidates will say, 'Well, that's a conservative argument and that's not really what's being advocated for.' If you look at the practical implications of some of the things they're pushing for, it is essentially open borders. I think there's a few things we've got to do when we're talking about immigration reform. One is that we've got to have secure borders. This is not Trump's wall from sea to shining sea, it's about seeing again what makes sense. I look at things from practical, objective-oriented standpoint, I'm a soldier so I look at what's our objective. Secure the borders. In some places, it may make the most sense to have a wall or some kind of physical barrier in place, in other places it won't make sense. So we use technology and all these other tools that we have ultimately to accomplish this objective about security at the border."
