Tulsi Gabbard Questions Democrats’ Support of Decriminalizing Border Crossings

Published

on

Democratic presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard claims that she is “looking at” the idea of decriminalizing border crossings.

However, she has concerns that it could lead to open borders.

On The View, she said “That’s something that I’m looking at”, when asked if she supports the idea.

She added, “I think decriminalizing could lead to open borders. We need safe, secure borders in this country. We need to reform our laws.”

In April, Julián Castro, got the ball rolling when he argued in favor of decriminalizing illegal border crossings.

The Washington Examiner reports that “8 of the 10 candidates onstage raised their hands in support of the position.”

Gabbard is currently tied for 11th place in the 2020 Democratic primaries along with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

The Hawaii congresswoman has made a name for herself by challenging the Swamp consensus on issues like foreign interventionism and never-ending wars.

Although her economic policies are standard fare for the Left, Gabbard at least brings a few points that deviate from the modern-day identity politics echo chamber that the Democratic Party has fully embraced.

BLP reported on Gabbard filing a lawsuit against Google for censoring her campaign at the start of the 2020 primaries.

By going against the grain on issues like defense, Gabbard is already facing the wrath of the political establishment.

These deviations will likely have her at the bottom of the polls throughout the 2020 elections.
