Kamala Harris Falsely Claims ‘We’ve Been to the Border,’ Laughs When Interviewer Calls Her Out

By

Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that “we’ve been to the border” even though she has not visited the nation’s southern border since President Joe Biden put her in charge of the immigration crisis in March.

“Do you have any plans to visit the border?” NBC News’ Lester Holt asked the California Democrat during an interview that aired Tuesday morning on the “Today” show.

“At some point, you know — we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border,” Harris responded. “So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”

“You haven’t been to the border,” Holt said.

“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris laughed in response.

“And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making,” she said. “I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
