WATCH: Biden’s AG Pick Just Refused to Say Illegal Border Crossings Are a Crime.

Start

When pressed by Senators on the legality of illegal border crossings, President Biden’s Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland revealed he “hadn’t thought about it.”

“Just a fundamental question. Do you believe that illegal entry at America’s borders should remain a crime,” Senator Dick Durbin asked.

Garland replied: “Well, I haven’t thought about that question. I just haven’t thought about that question.”

“I think, you know, the president had made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. I don’t know of a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question – I haven’t thought about it,” he adds.
