New York Gov. Kathy Hochul broke rank with the Democrat Party by admitting that the U.S. southern border is "too open" and there is an illegal immigration crisis under President Joe Biden. However, Hochul had a far different message about the border crisis not too long ago.
During a "Face the Nation" appearance on Sunday, Hochul called on Congress to enact a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform that would "have a limit on who can come across the border."
"It is too open right now," Hochul said of the southern border. "People coming from all over the world are finding their way through, simply saying they need asylum, and the majority of them seem to be ending up in the streets of New York and that is a real problem for New York City."
