Katie Couric interviewed Vice President Harris about immigration, pointing out that although Harris was tasked with understanding the root causes of the immigration crisis, she is not in charge of the border.

Couric highlighted criticism of the administration’s handling of the border crisis, to which Harris responded by emphasizing the need to fix the broken immigration system and mentioning the administration’s proposed funding request.

Couric said, “I want to talk to you about immigration, because I think nearly everyone agrees that the system is broken, and that we need comprehensive immigration reform. Early on, I know you were tasked with understanding the root causes of the immigration crisis, but you’re not in charge of the border, which I think is important to point out.”

Couric added, “68 percent of Americans disapprove of the way the Biden administration has handled the border.”

Harris replied, “There’s no question our immigration system is broken and it needs to be fixed. And as with any problem, leaders will participate — true leaders — in the solution. So I’m going take you back to about three years ago, I think the day after our inauguration, when Joe Biden came in as president and me as vice president. The first bill that we offered was a bill to fix the immigration system.”

“This is, first of all, not a new issue. But sadly, it has become so deeply partisan and the subject of political gamesmanship, when in fact the solutions are at hand. And we offered a solution early on and invited bipartisan work to fix this,” continued the Vice President.

“The situation is such that the system is broken and it needs to be fixed. And we have offered a solution and real leaders ought to lead on this, meaning not play politics with it, but work with us to fix the problem,” explained Harris.

Both Couric and Harris agreed that the issue had become deeply partisan.

Harris stated that the border was secure but acknowledged the need to fix problems that arose in the previous four years.

Harris said in 2020, “We have a secure border in that that is a priority for any nation, including ours and our administration.”

“But there are still a lot of problems that we are trying to fix given the deterioration that happened over the last four years,” added Harris.
