Jeff Merkley: Open Borders Is a ‘Myth’ and a ‘Red Herring’

‘Let’s get rid of the myth that Democrats are for open borders’

MERKLEY: "Well, let’s get rid of the myth that Democrats are for open borders. We’ve supported border security. That’s a red herring thrown in there. But the change they want is to get rid of the flores settlement agreement that says you can only lock up children for three days and you need to move them into a state licensed childcare facility or into a home. There is no way under any set of conditions that Democrats are going to support the indefinite lockup of children.”
