Pat Harrigan, a Republican congressional candidate in North Carolina, made controversial statements comparing deportation to Nazi Germany and expressed openness to fast-tracking citizenship for DACA recipients.

He emphasized the need for border control before considering widespread assimilation programs and expressed disagreement with Trump on labor issues.

“There has to be a pathway to citizenship. Look, from my perspective, you look at countries that have rounded up and exported people from their country. It’s a list of countries that we don’t want to be involved with. It’s Russia. It’s North Korea. It’s China. It is Nazi Germany,” Harrigan said.

“This horse has left the stables on this topic. And the vast, vast majority of immigrants that have come to this country are here because they’re trying to build a better life for themselves and for their families,” he said.

Harrigan’s stance on immigration and border security, including support for Trump’s policies, has sparked debate.

The district he aimed to represent is considered a safe Republican seat, currently held by Rep. Patrick McHenry, who announced he would not seek re-election.

“We have a massive labor crisis in this country right now. And quite frankly, we are wasting the best opportunity that we have had in the last 50 years to regenerate and regrow the American manufacturing capability, domestic manufacturing, because we don’t have any labor to support it. We have to have an ample flow of immigrants into this country,” he said.

“I’m very pro-immigration,” he added.

“I understand the true cost of freedom and the need for strong national security. My stance is clear: secure our borders first, complete the wall, deport illegal aliens who have broken our laws, and reinstate Trump’s border policies before considering any pathway to citizenship,” he said.

“I will fight to rectify the border crisis caused by Biden and radical democrats, advocate for Trump’s policies and push for the impeachment of DHS Secretary Mayorkas for failing to protect our nation,” he added.
