The Democratic senator, 54, from Pennsylvania said, 'I honestly don't understand why it's controversial to say we need a secure border.' 'And [what] I think about immigration is, we want to provide the American Dream for any migrant. You can be very supportive of immigration, but we also need to have a secure border,' he said. He also stated that the U.S. should toughen up its southern border policy, a stance some on the left think is inhumane. As for immigration, Fetterman argued he can be both pro-immigration, while also favor policies to restrict the flow of immigrants across the southern border to a manageable level.
