Joe Manchin Comes In Strong With Blunt Words About Border Issues

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia said the United States must turn away those who enter outside ports of entry and force people to apply for asylum in their home countries.

On West Virginia MetroNews' "Talkline with Hoppy Kercheval," Manchin delivered blunt statements about how America should handle frontline border issues.

Manchin stated that we need to require people to start the asylum application process from inside their home countries.

Manchin added that people who do not enter the United States through legal ports of entry should be turned away and legally kept from entering America.

Manchin said, "There are some things going on right now, which I can’t talk about, but I think there are some things that could be effective."

Manchin continued, "And I have deferred to Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), who are on the frontline, Texas has the longest border we have in our country, they’re on the frontline there and they’ve been negotiating it and understand that basically, what they’ve been asking for and what they think they’re able to negotiate would be very helpful at turning people away, being able to legally keep them from coming in unless they go from ports of entry and the asylum will be started in their own countries, all the different things that we’ve talked about."

Manchin continued, adding firmly that he believes, "that’s what has to be done."
